A Lifestyle of Worship
Our music ministry is centered around worship! Anytime you hear the word “worship” mentioned in a Christian setting, the first thing that comes to mind for most Christians is “music”- what we do as a body of believers each week. While it is true we can find great joy in worshipping God through music. Our act of worship should not be limited to a song or a series of songs we sing each Sunday morning. True worship of the Living God is to reflect in our lifestyle in every moment.
Matt 22:37 says, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” “All” is not limited to Sunday mornings – “all” is everything we have, every moment we are given and in every situation that God brings into our path. At Hillcrest, we are asking God to create a desire within all of us to honor, glorify and praise God through our lives.
If you have a heart for music, you will find opportunities for vocalist and instrumentalist of all ages. Choirs and vocal teams are available for kids, teenagers, and adults.
The Worship Choir is the primary worship-leading group of our church. It is made up of people who desire to serve the Lord by using their voices for Him. In a typical Worship Choir Rehearsal, you will experience a time of worship as we pray, fellowship, and even rehearse together. Varying levels of musicianship are welcome so don’t be afraid to try it out. As a general rule, if you can match pitch and blend with other voices, you will be a successful choir member.
We have talented vocalist who enjoy leading the body in worship. Our focus is to proclaim the name of Jesus. It’s not about us. It is all about getting the gospel message of Jesus Christ out through music. You must be an active member of the Worship Choir. Praise team members are auditioned with a musical and spiritual assessment. They are scheduled on a rotating basis. If you feel you led to serve in this role please contact the Music and Worship Ministry office. Participation is open to adults by audition and interview.
The Sonshine Singers choir is composed of adults of ages 55 and over.
This choir performs several special times during the year during our Sunday morning worship service at 10:00am. In addition to these special performances, they make "mini" world tour trips each year.
The Sonshine Singers rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 4:45-5:30pm.
Our Student Worship Choir is an exciting group to be a part of for students 7th through 12th grade. This group gives the opportunity to occasionally lead their church in worship. One of the highlights of this choir is going out beyond the walls and proclaiming the good news in our local city, our state, our country, and the world. It does not matter whether you think you are an experienced singer or a beginner. Singers of all levels are welcome!
Hillcrest offers two programs for children ages 4 years though 6th grade to help build their confidence through music.
The Worship Orchestra accompanies our choir each Sunday. Instrumentalist also join the choir in concerts and off campus worship experiences. As we continue to grow, we are always looking for new players. Participation is open to anyone 16 years and older by audition and interview.
Our Worship Band leads us each week in worship. This group is committed to providing excellent musical accompaniment. We desire those who lead us have a heart for serving the body in meaningful worship.
