Statement of Belief
The music ministry at Church of the Messiah seeks to follow God’s command to
“Make a joyful noise”! We have opportunities for those who are seeking to serve God through music. We believe that music should enhance worship, open one’s heart to hear the Word of God, and enable us to lift praises to Him, through a variety of vocal and instrumental opportunities. Like the congregation we help lead and serve, our music and people come in many diverse styles and backgrounds – we are united in Jesus Christ, our Lord!
This group sings at the 9:30 AM worship service. Singers may also sing at the 8AM service, if they wish. Membership is open to vocalists of all ages. Rehearsals are at 6:15 PM, Wednesday evenings. Participants are required to attend a free one-hour ear-training and music theory class.
The Worship Band plays at the 11AM contemporary worship service each Sunday. We sing and play contemporary Christian music, both what is currently heard on the radio as well as older, timeless songs and new arrangements of traditional hymns. Rehearsals are at 7:15, Wednesday evening. Singers and instrumentalists interested in this ministry should contact Sergei Kossenko, Music Minister, for an audition and personal interview.
This group plays and sings at our 7 PM worship on Sunday evenings. It is open to all ages for vocalists and instrumentalists who want to praise God in a more informal, blended worship setting. Rehearsals are on Sundays at 6:30pm, immediately preceeding the 7PM service.
