The Worship Choir is a group of passionate believers who are called to sing and to lead worship for His glory!  It is a place where each believer can express their personal worship in a dynamic corporate setting.  No audition is required.  The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:15-8:45 pm in the Music Suite. The Worship Choir is open to adults (ages 17 - up) who are interested in being a part of a loving, dynamic family of worship leader/musicians.  They lead worship during both Sunday morning worship services, selected Sunday evenings and at revivals, etc. Child care is provided for all functions (Birth - Middle School).  


 Worship Teams are made up of adults called to sing for His glory and to lead in our weekly worship services.  After a person joins the worship choir, they may contact the music office and request information in regards to auditioning for this ministry.  Other small groups are formed at various times of the year for presenting special music in worship services. All ensembles are formed from members who are active in one of the choirs or the orchestra. Rehearsal schedules will vary.


 Our Student Choir is open to all students 6th-12th grades. They meet on Sundays from 4:45-5:45 pm August thru May. The Student Choir leads in worship on selected Sunday evenings and present musicals throughout the year.

Music Kids Choirs (Children ages 4 through 5th Grade)
Children are a big part of the music ministry at Tabernacle We feel that music education is essential and vital for a well-rounded Christian education. Our choir program is open to all the children of our community. All choirs rehearse from August through February at 6-7 pm on Wednesdays. Our wonderful and loving staff seeks to teach children the importance of mu-sic as worship, as well as the fundamentals of music and good singing techniques.
As the worship/music ministry, it is our desire to use the tool of music as we plant God’s Word in the hearts of children. Our prayer is that they will know His love and sing praises to our great God all the days of their lives.

The Orchestra at Tabernacle is an instrumental group that provides some of the most exciting and dynamic opportunities to play a variety of musical styles which are not only fun, but provide special times of growth and ministry as they touch the hearts and lives of many people. The orchestra rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:15-8:45 pm in the Worship Center. We play every Sunday morning at the 9:15 and 10:45 am services and selected Sunday evenings. Youth through adults are invited to play. Instrumental soloists and ensembles are by audition and must be faithful members of the orchestra. Child care is provided for all orchestra rehearsals.
