Music in Worship
Our traditional services at 8 am and 11 am feature hymns accompanied by organ or piano. The Chancel Choir sings at the 11 am service, and at 8 am on special occasions. Vocal soloists and ensembles share their musical witness regularly at both services. Instrumentalists often perform with vocal ensembles or as soloists. Our music ministry also prepares special music for Easter and Christmas.
Our worship band provides the music for the 9:30 modern service with guitars, drums, voices, and more. You might hear songs you know from current Christian radio as well as traditional hymns with a modern twist. Modern worship uses lighting and technology to make an atmosphere where we can draw nearer to God through music.
The Cypress Ringers Handbell Choir rehearses on Monday nights from 6 to 7:15 pm. This group rings five octaves of Schulmerich handbells and is composed of experienced ringers. This choir usually plays in worship once a month, and we welcome new members as well as substitute ringers. If you are new to ringing but are interested in learning to play, contact Joey Herres.
If you are interested in handbells or choir, or if you can share your instrumental talents in worship from time, please contact Joey Herres, Director of Traditional Worship and Choirs.
If you play guitar, bass, or keyboards, or love to sing, you may have a place on the praise team! In order to schedule a brief audition or with any questions about modern worship, please contact Grady Wiley, Director of Modern Worship.
