Worship is an expression of our love for God. Romans 12:1 says, "Offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship."(NIV)

Looking at this passage we see that worship is much more than singing a song on Sunday morning. It's a life choice that we are to act on everyday. It all starts with the relationship we have with Jesus Christ.

Therefore, our purpose, as a ministry team, is to creatively communicate God's Word, through; music, art, multimedia and other contemporary forms; to bring people into an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ.

We are not, therefore, tasked to be worship leaders, but to be "lead worshippers".

 

The Music & Arts Ministry at Lakeshore can be divided up into three main areas of service; Worship Team, Technical Team, and Worship Choir.

 

WORSHIP TEAM

The worship team is an auditioned group of musicians, consisting of both instrumentalist and vocalist. Members of the the team serve on a rotating basis.

There are two basic things a person must do to participate as a worship team member. They are: attend Lakeshore on a regular basis, and complete an audition and interview with the music and arts pastor. In addition, each one is encouraged to take the Lakeshore 101 class.

Instrumentalist must be proficient on their instrument, able to read chord charts and catch on quickly. Vocalist should be able to hear and identify the various vocal parts. (ex. alto, tenor)

Each worship team member is scheduled to serve on a rotating basis and schedules are made in six to eight week blocks. The time commitment for weekends scheduled is 6.5 to 8 hours. This includeds a Saturday morning rehearsal and all three Sunday morning worship celebrations.

WORSHIP CHOIR

The worship choir is made up of those that love music and love to sing but enjoy the company of a larger vocal group. There is no audition required to participate one just needs to attend rehearsals.

This group meets during the fall and spring to assist in leading worship once a month. The commitment is monthly with two rehearsals each month. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings and dates are posted in the church bulletin. Usually the rehearsals are the last two Wednesdays of the month.

Each member of the tech team serves on a rotating basis and is expected to serve all three services when scheduled.

To participate on the technical arts team one must attend Lakeshore regularly, be interviewed by the music and arts pastor and complete all necessary training.

The time commitment for audio engineers is between 6.5 to 8 hours on weekends scheduled. For all others expect 6.5 hours when scheduled.
