Supports and encourages creative and meaningful forms of worship and the integration of music into a progressive and down to earth experience of faith.
This ministry works with many other groups at the church, such as the ones listed below:

Seasonal Worship Activities
December - February
We have a few traditions during the Advent/Christmas season. For example:
For decorating our Christmas tree, we use Chrismon Ornaments. They are white and gold ornaments that are centuries-old religious symbols. These ornaments provide a proper way of decorating the annual Christmas tree.
We participate in the community’s Tree Lighting celebration.
For Christmas Eve, we will light candles during the service.
We share in an intergenerational Christmas Pageant each year.
March - May
Lenten Services where part of our programming will be to invite community members to come into the church for a time of reflection. The maze, or labyrinth is used for reflection purposes.
June - August
We enjoy worshipping several times outdoors during the summer. We congregate under the trees and enjoy the breezes as we listen to the music and story for the day.
Christmas in July
Members of the congregation wrap “presents” for Pastor Jeff to open, identify, and attempt to connect to the Christian message and witness. Along with the presents, we sing hymns that are typically sung in December before Christmas Day.
September - November
Blessing of Backpacks and Animals: An annual blessing is given to the backpacks as our children return to school and to our pets. We also annually celebrate Harvest Home and the blessings God gives us in our individual time, tithes and talents.
