The Village Worship Ministry  leads an intergenerational congregation of worshippers through music and creative arts. We are privileged to have the opportunity to lead in live worship each Sunday and Thursday, as well as special events.  Worship is more than music or a style, it is a lifestyle. We seek to respond to our Creator with all that is within us on a daily, moment-by-moment basis. The purpose of the Worship and Arts Ministry is to passionately and intentionally connect people from every generation to God.  Join us as we seek to create opportunities for people to encounter God through worship locally and around the world.. We are here to help people connect to Christ and His family.

Worship Team

Village Choir

Our worship choir leads the congregation during most Sunday morning services at the McPherson Campus. The Village Choir is multi-generational and open to youth through adults. No experience or music reading is necessary. Join us for a rehearsal at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays!

Praise Band & Team

All worship services are led by a praise team consisting of vocalists and band. A placement meeting and audition is the first step for anyone interested in being a part of the praise team or praise band.

Village Kids Choir

The Arts

For kids 1st-5th grade, Village Kids Choir meets on Tuesdays from 3 p.m.-5 p.m. during the school year. The kids engage in a rotation of activities, including singing, choreography, music reading, Bible study, games, snacks and more. This group presents a yearly musical in the Spring.
