What is worship?
Worship is not, by definition, the singing that occurs before or after the Pastor’s message, though singing could be one form of our worship. Rather, true worship is an outpouring from our hearts of the love that we have for God. We worship Him as we live our lives for Him each day, offering ourselves to be used by Him as “living sacrifices.” According to Romans 12:1-2 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
Why do we have a music ministry?
There is no Biblical mandate for a praise team, choir or “special music” in a Sunday morning service; therefore we don’t need these musical groups. However, the apostle Paul took the gospel to the people, in the language and vernacular of the people. The application for us is that we have an opportunity to sing quality, doctrinally sound music that is culturally relevant, be it popular or psalms, hymns and spiritual songs in a variety of styles and formats.
Who can participate?
Anyone who has demonstrated a faith in Jesus Christ, who regularly attends CBC, and “whose heart’s desire is to selflessly serve God with their musical talent, submitting to one another in love” is welcome to participate in the choir.
Come to rehearsal on Thursdays from 7:30-8:30 pm in the sanctuary. If you have a desire to participate in the praise team or minister to the congregation by providing “special music” during the offering in our Sunday service please see the music director, Keith DeLorme for more information, or
please contact the church
Calvary Bible Church Audio/Video Ministry
Many of our ministries at CBC function effectively as a result of the supportive role that the audio/video room personnel provide. Audio/video room personnel provide the technology that sustain and enhance the Sunday morning worship service, AWANA, our annual VBS, the music ministry and more.
An important function of this ministry includes weekly audio CD duplication of the Sunday morning worship service. If you desire an audio copy of the service, see any of the guys in the “sound booth.”
