When we gather as God’s church on Sunday mornings, we hear the word of God preached, we receive the ministry of the Spirit as we use our gifts to fellowship with and serve one another, and we sing together, celebrating the character and worth of God through the Gospel of His Son, Jesus Christ. But why do we sing?
Colossians 3:16 instructs us to “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” This is what the music ministry at LCC seeks to accomplish every Sunday. We want the truth of God’s Word to be the foundation upon which we live our lives for God's glory. Singing helps us remember who God is and what He has done for us through His Son. So we sing passionately, expressively, and loudly because we’ve received the free gift of amazing grace! And we do that each Sunday because we are God's church, diverse people lifting up one unified voice declaring with thankful hearts “Jesus Saves!”
The Music Ministry at LCC is made up of about 40 men and women who serve on several different ministry teams: Instrumentalists, Vocalists, Praise Choir, Sound Engineers & Techs, and Lyric & Camera Operators. These are men and women who love the church and seek to steward their musical gifts for the purpose of serving the church.
There are also several other music ministry contexts with opportunities for serving:
- Praise Choir on select Sundays throughout the year
- Youth Ministry meetings on Wednesday nights
- Children’s Choir on Sunday mornings (part of LCC Kids Ministry)
- Children's Choir on select Sunday's throughout the year
- Small Group Worship Leaders/Instrumentalists
- Christmas Musical Adult and Children's Choir
If you have any musical or technical gifts, we’d love to consider how you might be able to serve with us at LCC. Contact our Music Ministry & Worship Leader, Erik Schmaltz with any questions or interest.
