Worship is giving God the glory He alone deserves. Music is one tools He has given to help us do that. Both through example and command, Scripture shows us the vital role music plays in the worship of God. Psalm 66:2 says, “Sing the glory of His name; give to Him glorious praise!” Music is a gift from God, intended to assist us as we develop and deepen our relationship with Him. The purpose of our Worship ministry is to glorify God as we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and prepare His people to worship Him forever through God-centered (Rom. 11:36), Biblical (Jn. 4:24; 17:17), undistracting and excellent (Ps. 33:3; Col. 3:23) music in both historical and contemporary forms (Matt. 13:52).
The Worship Ministry of Bethany Community Church exists to glorify God as we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and prepare God’s people to worship Him forever.
- Our church is committed to worship that is…God centered – “For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever.” Romans 11:36
- Bible based and Bible saturated – “Those who worship God must worship in spirit and truth; Your Word is truth.” John 4:24; 17:17
- Undistracting and excellent – “Play skillfully and shout for joy.” Psalm 33:3; “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, and not for men.” Colossians 3:23
- Mingled with historic and contemporary music – “the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings of out of his treasure what is new and what is old.” Matthew 13:52
Participation in the worship teams (vocalists and musicians) are by audition which are held throughout the year or upon special request.
As the tech team we enable the musicians, vocalists, and pastors message to reach and lead the church body. Participation in the Tech Ministry involves serving one Sunday morning a month. A typical Sunday morning consists of Setup, running the sound board, and tear down. No previous experience is required. If you have an interest in learning how to use one of the most vital tools in our church, the sound and Audio/Video team could be the place for you.
Christmas Choir/Musical Groups
Joining with the adult choir from the Bethany Fellowship of Churches, we have a Community Christmas Weekend the first full weekend in December. It is a great evening of Christmas worship! Rehearsals will begin in August on Wednesday nights from 8:00 to 8:45pm. Musical groups are put together occasionally for special music and other ministry opportunities.
If you are interested in serving in the worship ministry, or have questions about our different areas of opportunity, please contact Mike Chambers at 508-1755 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
