Praise Band

 Mission

It is our desire at Calvary Lutheran Chapel to encourage all who attend our services to have an encounter with the Living God through music. Whether it be through congregational singing of traditional hymns or contemporary chorus, or through special music selections sung or played by member of our praise band, we hope to invite all to be edified and encouraged by praising and worshiping our Lord in song. We believe we were created to glorify God and consider it a huge privilege as a team to lead people in unified worship of our Savior through music.

Here at Calvary you do not need to be a “professional” musician to be a part of the music ministry. We encourage people of all levels of ability to use the gift of music that God has given to them to help bless those around them. Our goal is excellence in all we do (not perfection) and, to our team, excellence is defined as doing the best we can with what God has given to us. So, we do have rehearsal to refine our ability and learn to play and sing together as a team so we are as musically prepared as possible.  However, we also believe in spiritual preparation through prayer and teaching on the subject of music in the bible. Our hope is that all who are a part of the music ministry at Calvary will find the experience spiritually uplifting and fun, all within a relaxed yet focused atmosphere. 

Do you sing or play an instrument (an instrument is welcome)?

Would you like to be a part of our music team?

2 Chronicles 5:12-14 (NIV) Dedication of Solomon’s Temple

All the Levites who were musicians—Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun and their sons and relatives—stood on the east side of the altar, dressed in fine linen and playing cymbals, harps and lyres. They were accompanied by 120 priests sounding trumpets.  The trumpeters and singers joined in unison, as with one voice, to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, they raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: 
"He is good; his love endures forever." Then the temple of the LORD was filled with a cloud, and the priests could not perform their service because ofthe cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the temple of God.

 

Colossians 3:16 (NIV)

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
