Worship is at the heart of everything we do at Forest Hill Church. It brings us in touch with God and the Spirit of the Risen Christ. Worship inspires and motivates our entire mission. Worship is the source of our identity and power. We come alive as we praise God.
The Ministry of Worship supports worship leaders…
We support worship leaders in providing an inviting and spiritually-inspiring worship experience for visitors and everyone in our beloved community.
The Ministry of Worship supports worship leaders with practical matters such as organizing communion and collaborates with pastoral staff to ensure worship is conducted in a way that meets the diverse needs and worship styles of our beloved community. In recruiting worship leaders (music, ushers, communion servers, readers, liturgists…) we strive for racial equity and representation of the full diversity of our congregation.
What We Do
We plan, organize, recruit, interface with, and manage the budget for everything worship-related, such as:
Music for Sunday worship and other special services and concerts; support Music Director with care of organ/piano, volunteer choirs, and occasional guest musicians and soloists; encourage incorporating a variety of cultural expressions in the music
Ushering/greeting & bulletins, collect offering, gather prayer requests, count attendance/collect fellowship pad sheets
Communion (organizing, preparing, serving)
Decorations (flowers, paraments changed by religious season, candles, wreaths, banners, streamers…)
Audio-visual Team (sound system control board, manage mics and cameras for sound in sanctuary and recording/online streaming)
Volunteer Readers/Liturgists (scripture and other readings, prayers and other support for pastor/preacher)
