Worship and Music

 

Philosophy

The desire of the music ministry is to uplift the name of Jesus Christ through spirited blended worship each and every Sunday. Realizing that they are singing to an audience of ONE, the prayer of the members of the music ministry is that their music will encourage the saints and be used by the Holy Spirit to prepare hearts for the preaching of the Word of God resulting in transformed lives through a personal relationship with Jesus.

Style

Each week the congregation is lead in corporate worship through a blended style of music. The congregation singing is balanced between the great hymns of the faith and the new praise and worship music being written each and every year. It is blend that is pleasing to the Lord.

Holiday Collaboratives and Nights of Worship

The music department periodically combines the adult, student, and children’s ministries for special Christmas and Easter services as well as other times during the year when there is a special emphasis. A couple of times during the year we host a night of worship where those from Westside as well as special guests from outside can worship together through various solos, duets, groups, vocal and instrumentals.
