    Serve with Worship Ministry
    Choir, Orchestra, & Band
    Auditioning new musicians

    Our Calvary Choir, Orchestra, and Worship Band are made up of Calvary members of all ages who serve on Sundays in our worship service. We prepare each week on Wednesday evenings (September–May, 6:30–8:00 PM) where we rehearse and grow together through rich community and prayer.

    We're currently seeking more godly and skilled musicians to join our worship-leading community! Extensive experience is not required and training is provided for all tech team roles. The most important qualification is having a heart for Christ-centered, God-glorifying worship! Calvary membership is expected.

    Interested in serving with us? Email Christy Driscoll at cdriscoll@calvarychurch.com to arrange an audition by August 22.
