We believe that as spiritual beings created in the image of God, we were designed and intended to worship. Our lives can only find their fullest expression and deepest satisfaction when this inherent drive to worship is oriented towards our Creator, who alone is worthy of our praise. While we believe this should be a constant, lifelong attitude to be cultivated by every follower of Christ, we also believe God has given us a unique capacity to express this communally through music in corporate worship.
Worship Through Music
One of the main reasons we gather together on Sundays is to express our worship as a community through music. The worship ministry at ACF exists to make this experience as artistically excellent, spiritually uplifting, and Christ-centered as possible. For our particular church, we emphasize more modern or contemporary styles of music, using the popular instruments of our culture such as acoustic and electric guitars, drums, keyboards, violins, bass guitars, etc. We feel that this best resonates with the people in our church as well as the larger community and culture whom we feel called to reach with Christ’s message. Though this typically means singing mostly modern praise and worship songs, we do occasionally sing more traditional hymns to remember and learn from the great history and heritage of our faith.
We are always eager for new volunteers to grow and diversify our worship ministry. While we seek to make this ministry available to all who are interested, there are a limited number of positions, so worship team members are selected on the basis of talent, commitment, graciousness, flexibility, and reliability.
We play at four services each week: Wednesdays at 7 PM, and Sundays at 8:30, 10 & 11:30 AM. Rehearsal is Monday night at 6:30 PM. Volunteers typically serve 1-2 weeks a month, depending on the position. On the weeks you serve you are expected to attend Monday rehearsal, and come an hour prior to each service (6 PM on Wednesday, and 7:30 AM on Sunday). If you are interested in serving on the worship team, please read the policies and procedures file and fill out the form below and we will get in touch with you.
