Worship Ministries

Our Worship Team is a deeply committed community of vocal and instrumental musicians, plus sound and video technicians who love worshiping God and serving together. Our purpose is to help Calvary worship in an inspiring and meaningful way — plus, we have a lot of fun!

Above, the choir enjoys early fall rehearsals outdoors on the Galleria patio, with plenty of social distancing!

    Choir, Orchestra & Band
    Serving in worship services

     

    Our Calvary Choir, Orchestra, Band, and Tech Team are comprised 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 experience is not required, just a heart for Christ-centered, God-glorifying worship.

    "Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!" — Psalm 103:1
