Once you enjoy the worship through music at MVCN you will know how much a part it plays in our worship. We are pleased to present not only a great choir but also a very fine orchestra on Sunday mornings. And, we encourage those who sing or play a musical instrument to participate. If you have ever been a choir member, you know that it is a ministry unto itself. Come be part of this wonderful family.
Worship has been a vital part of MVCN since her inception. We believe in worshipping our Lord. Worship services have long been a strength for Midland Valley and include a variety of styles of music to involve everyone in experiencing the joy of worship! Following are just a few ways to be involved in the Music Ministry.
Voices in Praise is our adult choir and they are a worship-leading choir--essentially, they are the 'praise team.' They sing in our two identical Sunday worship services at 8:30 AM and 10:00 AM. In addition, Voices in Praise, our orchestra and drama team do musical and drama presentations at Christmas, Easter and God & Country Day in July. The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm, and occasionally on Sunday afternoons to prepare for special events.
Also, our Orchestra plays on a weekly basis that includes students and adults from our congregation. They assist in worship as well as playing a feature tune occasionally that may best be described as "NazJazz." To participate in the orchestra, players need to be at or near high school level and know all notes for their instrument and be comfortable playing in most any key signature. Orchestra rehearsals are from 6:00-6:30pm on Wednesdays, though several players stay through choir rehearsal for extra practice time.
Soloists and Praise Team Singers are used often to help lead our congregation in worship.
Ministry through Drama is occasionally part of the worship service and musicals as we seek to use a variety of mediums to convey the eternally important message of the Gospel.
Additional areas of ministry in Worship Arts include the Media Team. Sound, lighting, video and projections personnel are needed for every service. Some experience on equipment such as an iMac for projections or sound mixer boards is helpful but not mandatory. Training periods are set up for new workers to join these teams.
