Weekly at 6:30 p.m., Longview EPC Music Ministries hosts “SING SAFE!!”, in lieu of regularly held sanctuary choir rehearsal.

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed church singing across America.  For our congregation, we are still taking great precautions with our musical presentation in worship.  We are fortunate to have a praise team presence in our worship services (following safety guidelines such as masks when not singing and social distancing), but we will still not have a choir presence in worship services until we are advised it is safe to do so. 

In answer to the void caused by the concern for safety, all who love to sing and wish to praise God in song are invited to join us in the sanctuary for what we refer to as “SING SAFE!!”.  It is a time to sing from the hymnbook, sing praise choruses, read scripture and pray for one another in a space that can afford safe social distancing.  Masks will be required to enter the building.

Again, “Sing Safe!!” will begin September 9th, at 6:30 p.m. and will run weekly.  We hope you can join us.  Everyone is invited.

Longview EPC Worship Leader Job Description


 

The Music Ministry

of Longview EPC exists with the sole purpose of complementing and enhancing the worship experience of those who attend.  Our worship style is blended. What that means is most services will have piano, guitars, drums, choir, band and orchestral instruments, and a variety of music.  Whether it a traditional hymn, gospel song, chorus, contemporary song, spiritual, choral anthem; Taize,  or world music; we believe that as long as it aids in furthering the gospel and our experience of worship, God can use it to further His Kingdom in our midst.  One Sunday will not hold every style of music, but over a period of weeks a worshiper should experience a balanced blend of music.

Chancel Choir

This volunteer ensemble usually meets on Wednesday evenings for rehearsal from 6:30 - 8:00 PM and then again on Sunday mornings at 8:30 AM.  The choir is open to anyone who enjoys singing.  The only real requirement is that you can match pitch and it is helpful if you can follow a voice part.  We are in need of more singers and would welcome you.   

Praise Team

This worship team is made up of volunteers who have skills and talents playing instruments and singing.   This team meets on Thursday evenings for rehersal from 6:00 - 7:15 PM.  If you enjoy playing guitar, bass guitar, drums, keyboard, or even band and orchestra instruments such as flute, clarinet or violin it would be great to have you share your talents in worship.  

Bell Choir

Our Bell Choir usually rehearses every Sunday from 6:00 PM - 7:00 or 7:15 PM.  Please contact David Luna with if you are interested or have a question.
