People of all ages have assisted us in our worship
There are several ways to become involved in the Instrumental ministry:
Most Sunday mornings include a Brass Ensemble that helps in our worship experience. The 4-5 part brass section is standard. If you play the trumpet, saxophone or trombone, we could use you!
WOODWIND AND STRING ENSEMBLE
During most Communion Sundays (1st Sunday of the month), we give the brass section a break and allow the woodwinds to take their place. A small ensemble of flute, clarinet, oboe and string players plays on a monthly basis.ORCHESTRAThroughout the Christmas & Easter Seasons, we will utilize a full orchestra made up of our Rhythm, Brass, Percussion and Woodwind sections. We supplement our players with excellent string players from the local area. The result is a 35 piece orchestra that accompanies our annual Christmas Programs as well as Easter Sunday Services.
Started by our former Assistant to Music Ministries, Steve Engel, this swing band is featured during our annual Christmas Programs. This is a fun group of players who enjoy the challenge of playing swing style music.
