WORSHIP & MINISTRIES
MUSIC MINISTRY AT ORCHARD...
Music at Orchard tunes our hearts, opening us to the Word and the Grace of God. Through congregational singing, anthems both reflective and inspirational, major choral works with orchestral accompaniment, spirited contemporary song, and stirring instrumentals, the Ministry of Music at Orchard seeks to connect people to God, to each other, and to the best parts of themselves through the gift of music. Simultaneously honoring the traditions of the past and today’s newest songs, this vibrant ministry provides ample and varied opportunities for musicians of all backgrounds and abilities.
Music speaks to our core beliefs and illuminates them in a way that spoken word alone cannot. Our music ministry enhances the experience of worship that happens at Orchard, perhaps through a specially selected solo that speaks to the day’s message, a “festival anthem” which combines multiple ensembles, the Chancel Choir’s annual Christmas musical offering, a youth musical which teaches us about our faith in a dramatic and entertaining way, or an original composition written just for Orchard. You may have heard it said that, "to sing is to pray twice," but we like to say that, "at Orchard, if we don't sing it, we don't believe it!" No matter how it's said, we believe that music tunes our hearts to receive the wonders of God's grace and love.
MUSIC OPPORTUNITIES AT ORCHARD...
We also believe that music is a gift from God. Members of the music ministry at Orchard have answered God’s call by giving their time and talent as an offering of praise. Our gifts come in different shapes and sizes, but we all have one! If you play an instrument, sing like a star, or just like to sing with the radio, there is a place for you here!
God does not expect us to be stars - just willing disciples. Bring your gift, no matter how great - and join the heavenly chorus!
