Worship is often equated with church music. However, worship is much more than this. Fundamentally, it has nothing to do with music or art; yet, these realms can be powerful expressions of our worship. Worship is, as Paul defines it in Romans 12:1, the act of offering one's self to the Lord as a living sacrifice. This conscious decision is to affect every aspect of our lives. When we are living lives of genuine worship, we will be moved to express our worship in wonderfully fresh and artistic ways. This is the driving force behind the worship ministry of Arrow Heights. There are many opportunities for you to lend your voice or talent. However, we must be worshipers in our daily lives before our artistic expressions will be received by God.
The Celebration Choir is the backbone of the worship ministry at Arrow Heights; all other ensembles including our praise teams operate as extensions of this ministry. The Celebration Choir leads worship every Sunday (we break during the summer for family time!), and prepares special seasonal presentations throughout the year. This is an open group, no auditions required. We rehearse every Wednesday from 6:30-8:00 PM, in the Worship Center. Sunday sound check is 8:30 - 9:05 AM. Come join us!
The praise team is a group of auditioned front-line singers who are also members of the Celebration Choir. This dedicated group of singers rehearses with the Celebration Choir on Wednesday nights, but may have additional rehearsals, depending on the event. If you are interested in auditioning for the praise team, we ask that you first become a faithful member of the Celebration Choir.
The band is the foundation of worship music at Arrow Heights. Because of the advanced musical and technical requirements of this core group of players, this is an invitation-only group. If you are a salty player and have an interest in serving in the band, please contact Worship Pastor Chris Emert (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the worship office with your interest.
Children's Choirs at Arrow Heights are designed to invest both musically and spiritually in the lives of your little ones. With graded classes for children ages pre-K through 6th grade, there is a place for your child! Our children's choirs include music, motions, drama, instruments, hymn memory, games and more. At the end of each semester, our combined children's choirs present a program for the entire church. There is no cost for your child to attend children's choir. Under the exceptional direction of Coordinator Keri Akers, Children's Choir meets each Sunday evening throughout the school year, from 6:00-7:30 pm.
Silvertones Senior Adult Choir
Our senior adult choir has a wonderful time singing for our church family, for retirement villages, other churches, and for revival meetings in the area. Open to anyone, age 55 and up, the Silvertons Choir meets the first and second Tuesdays of each month (September - November and February -April) to sing in local retirement facilities.
Our Production Team serves as the nerve center of our worship services. Providing lighting, sound, and video needs for worship, the Production Team makes sure you can see it, hear it, and experience it. To serve on the Production Team, an interview is required and training is provided.
