Worship and Arts

The mission of the St. Michael’s Worship and Arts ministry is to unite all generations of the church together in the holy act of listening and responding as true worshippers of GOD through song, Word, prayer, baptism and communion. We want to creatively use all the arts to worship GOD in every area of our church life together, our homes and in our communities.

I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul makes it’s boast in the LORD; let the humble hear and be glad.
Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together!
Psalm 34:1-3

As we work together, we implement these strategic values:

  • Creative excellence that is process driven
  • Encourage one another by speaking truth in love
  • Grow relationships with God and others
  • We work with a safety net as we model the Christian lifestyle

Areas to get involved in Worship and Arts:

St. Michael’s Choir A group of 25 singers who love to serve the Lord through song. We sing an eclectic mix of both contemporary and traditional church music. The choir prepares one large work around Christmas time as well as special music throughout the year. The choir participates in worship twice a month. Due to COVID-19 we are delaying the start to the choir season but are hopeful that we will get back to the loft soon. Please contact Music Director Derek Bates at dbates@smlcb.org for more information.

Worship Teams (vocals and instruments) Musicians of all ages and abilities are welcome! Teams rotate weekly. Even during COVID-19 we are looking for new members to join our team. We play a variety of band-led contemporary music. The current time commitment consists of Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 8 pm and 7:20 to 10:30 am on Sundays. Contact Derek Bates if you are interested in participating! dbates@smlcb.org

 Scripture Readers  All ages are welcome. They set the tone for our pastor’s message. The rotation is about every 6-8 weeks.

Media and Tech Teams (sound, lighting, and video) Volunteers are needed to serve during weekly services and special events. Training is provided. 

Livestream Production Teams Volunteers serve weekly to broadcast our Sunday service. This ministry requires between 2-4 volunteers weekly. Training is provided.

Art of Passage Gallery The gallery is located off the main church lobby. We at St. Michael’s value the visual arts and the expression of God’s creativity in us through art. Installations include a variety of art mediums and are changed monthly. 

Weekend Worship Hospitality Teams (greeters, ushers, coffee servers) Our mission is to welcome and love our neighbors in response to God’s love. Our hospitality teams serve in creating a welcoming environment for both regular attenders and visitors.

Decor Teams  (Altar candles, paraments, flowers and outdoor flower pots) Volunteers are needed to help throughout the year.

Welcoming and Loving Our Neighbors in Response to God's Love
