CONNECTING WITH GOD
We believe that worship is the fuel for discipleship as God longs to create a people who will glorify Him for eternity. One of the ways we live out the pursuit of discipleship through connecting with God in worship is through music. Music makes disciples. It conveys truth, but not in a way that simply transfers information. The end goal of worship through music is not simply to inform, but to conform. It is because of God's great grace that something as simplistic, yet enjoyable as music can serve to form us into the image of Christ.
Our Ministry is based on the following principles:
Our Foundation - God's Word
Our Relationships - With one another and our personal walk with God.
Our Preparation - We will prepare ourselves musically because excellence is required in all that we offer our God.
Our Celebration - We believe that most powerful worship leading our church is the choir.
Coggin Worship Choir
This extraordinary group of people seek to use their talents to bring glory to God through music and song. The Coggin Worship Choir not only leads the congregation in worship, but they also present a selection of music during the service each Sunday that is meant to represent God's love for us and our praise to Him. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:45.
Rising Shout Youth Choir
Rising Shout is our choir for students, grades 7-12. This is a great opportunity for students who enjoy singing to learn how to hone their gifting in the context of Christian community. When voices unite for the glory of God, it helps form us into mature disciples as we declare the excellencies of our Savior. We meet from September to May on Sundays at 5:00pm in the choir room.
New Vision Singers
Our senior adult choir ministers in our community by singing at local adult care centers. In addition, New Vision singers lead worship once a month in the early service. We rehearse each Thursday at 10am in the choir room.
Our orchestra assists in leading worship in the early service and is another avenue that we encourage people to use their gifts. The scriptures declare musical instruments are pleasing to the Lord and when added to the praises of the people, we find a picture of what the church should be—various instruments working harmoniously for the praise of The Father, Son, and Spirit.
