Music literacy is helpful, but not necessary. No audition is required. Interested singers are invited to come to rehearsals. We do encourage a strong commitment to rehearsal in order that the singer is prepared on Sunday morning and also for the building of community. Singers choose between the 9:30 or 11 worship service.

Sunday Sounds is a music experience for children in kindergarten through 5th grade. This ministry teaches children to lead and participate in worship through music. Our main goal is to encourage the children to offer their talent and gifts to God through service. Weekly rehearsals give children the opportunity to sing, move and play while being introduced to various types of music along with worship education while building lasting relationships with their peers, adult teachers, and helpers. Each choir participates in worship several times throughout the year. By participating in worship, our children not only share their gift of music with God and the congregation, but also experience being leaders in worship.

The CLC Worship Team is a volunteer band of musicians and vocalists. Our team members range from enthusiastic amateurs to trained professionals, but we all share a love of music, a desire for community, and a calling to serve. Music literacy and experience are important but not mandatory. Within the team, our goal is to create a safe place for our volunteers to learn and develop as worship leaders. While formal auditions are not our style, we do desire a strong commitment to rehearsal and preparation. Members can expect to participate in a weekly practice on Tuesday evenings and a weekly run-through on Sunday mornings before services. If you are interested in learning more, we would love to get to know you at one of our weekly practice sessions.
