Choir, Orchestra & Band
Serving in worship services
Our Worship Team is a deeply committed community of vocal and instrumental musicians, and 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!
Explore below to learn more about our Worship Team and Worship Ministries!
Choir, Orchestra & Band
Our Calvary Choir, Orchestra, Band, and Tech Team are made up 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 musical experience is not required, just a heart for Christ-centered, God-glorifying worship.
New members are accepted in September and in January. Training is provided for all tech team roles.

"Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!" — Psalm 150
