Soli Deo Gloria
(For the Glory of God Alone)
About Soli Deo Gloria
Soli Deo Gloria—For the glory of God alone. That's our tagline. We want everyone to use their gifts, talents and abilities for God's glory. 1 Corinthians 10:31 tells us, "Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for God’s glory." This includes our worship, our music, our day to day life, and...EVERYTHING. If we are doing this, we will give our best, we will have the right motives, we will put God first, and generally everything else will fall into place. Every area within the worship ministry operates within this belief and it shapes everything we do.
We define worship as follows:
Worship is the correct response to a proper understanding of who God is and what He's done for us.
The worship team consists of a rotating contemporary band and vocal team that serve every week. Our desire for the worship team is not to be the center of attention, but to lead others by example in true and meaningful worship by pointing to the One and only God who is worthy of all praise and worship. We also seek to "Let the message about the Messiah dwell richly among us, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, with gratitude in our hearts to God." (Col 3:16) The worship team reherases every Thursday from 7:15-8:45. If you are interested in getting involved in the worship team, contact David Anderson.
This faithful, rotating team of unsung heroes volunteer their time and skills to create distraction-free environments that help facilitate our worship experience. They've done the best job possible if you don't notice them doing their job, but without them, the whole service would fall apart. Every Sunday service we have one volunteer sound mixer and one volunteer media/lighting person to help make our service run smoothly. If you are interested in getting involved with the tech team, contact David Anderson.
The choir is open to anyone who wants to fulfill the biblical commandment to "make a joyful noise unto the Lord" (Ps. 100:1) or "Shout to the Lord, all the earth; be jubilant, shout for joy, and sing." (Ps. 98:4). You don't have to read music or have sung in a choir before. If you have a willing heart to worship God together with other believers and lead the congregation through your example, then we would love to have you in choir. The choir sings for special occasions and services throughout the year. If you want to get involved, contact David Anderson.
