    Choir, Orchestra & Band
    Serving in worship services

    Our Calvary Choir, Orchestra, Band, and Tech Team are made up of Calvary members of all ages who serve on Sundays in our worship services. We prepare each week during "Wednesday Worship" where we rehearse and grow together through prayer and rich community. Extensive musical experience is not required, just a heart for Christ-centered, God-glorifying worship.

    New members are accepted in September and in January. Training is provided for all tech team roles.

    Email Christy Driscoll at cdriscoll@calvarychurch.com to learn more about Worship Ministries and how you can get involved.

    "Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness!

    Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!" — Psalm 150

    This world is not what it was meant to be
    All this pain, all this suffering
    There's a better place waiting for me
    In Heaven
    Every tear will be wiped away
    Every sorrow and sin erased
    We'll dance on seas of amazing grace
    In Heaven
    In Heaven
    I'm goin' home
    Where the streets are golden
    Every chain is broken
    Oh I wanna go
    Oh I wanna go
    Where every fear is gone
    I'm in your open arms
    Where I belong
