From time to time, liturgical dancers are called upon to interpret music or scripture for worship or other special events. Anyone interested in interpreting scripture and music through use of movement and dance is encouraged to register with the church music office.
 
Church Band
Instrumentalists often supplement the hymns or provide accompaniment for anthems. The church band rehearses on an ad hoc basis. People who play an instrument please contact the music director.
 
Drama
Scripture readings are often brought to life when dramatized or read in character. Good readers or those with a dramatic flair interested in interpreting scripture in a fresh setting, please contact one of the pastors or the music director. Commitment is for a single event.
