The band consists of a rotating group of musicians who volunteer their gifts in the life of the church. Musicians play at the 9:30am service. We welcome singers and players who value creating in community. We practice on Wednesday nights from 7-8pm in the church sanctuary as well as Sunday mornings at 8am.
During rehearsals, we go over the list of songs (using chord charts) for the coming Sunday morning and end with a time of fellowship and prayer. Participation in the band is open to all. If you would like to use your musical gifts in the life of this church, you are encouraged to join rehearsals and get plugged in.
We are worship leaders and an integral part of the worship experience at PCBW. We believe drawing people near to the Lord in worship and praise through music is a very high calling and privilege. We are therefore dedicated to this calling and view it as our contribution to the body of Christ.
Choir practice is on Wednesday nights from 5:30-6:30pm, in the choir room. We welcome singers of all abilities. We are typically a group of about 20 folks who welcome the challenge and joy of singing in community as we hone our musical skills. We strive community of grace, acknowledging that we are all still learning, and seek to be a source of encouragement to each other. Contact Patty Parsons-Tewsons at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The A/V team is comprised of people from the church community who work behind the scenes on Sunday mornings, and during special church events, to ensure the sound and visuals enhance the worship. The projector slides for Sunday morning use a simple worship program, similar to any kind of Power Point flow. The computer operator is responsible for advancing the slides at the appropriate time. This is a very simple, but crucial component in worship and we welcome any volunteer who would like to learn and serve in this way. Training is provided.
The sound ministry is equally important, and requires more specialized training. Presently we have a handful of rotating sound technicians who assist with microphone set-up and clearing, band or choir rehearsals, and special events. We are always looking for individuals who feel called to this area of service. We provide training on our two systems – River Room or Main sanctuary, and are happy to continue your education until you feel comfortable behind the board.
Worship Ministry Team
This team of people gather together monthly to envision, discern, advise, and pray through the church’s corporate gatherings. We discuss both contemporary and traditional worship services, and any needs that may come up. From music selection, to art, to candles, to worship retreats – we cover a wide range of topics with the goal of drawing the body of Christ together in worship here at PCBW. Please contact Ed Northen at email@example.com.
