Worshiping Jesus together may be the single most important thing we do. It plays an indispensable role in rekindling our spiritual fire, and keeping it burning. Corporate worship brings together God’s word, prayer, and fellowship, and so makes for the greatest means of God’s ongoing grace in the Christian life. “There’s an element of worship and Christianity that cannot be experienced in private worship or by watching worship. There are some graces and blessings that God gives only in the ‘meeting together’ with other believers” (Spiritual Disciplines, 92).
Our musicians are on the platform not just to play music but to worship and lead worship. The “worship leader” is not the only one leading worship. Bass players… Keys players… Drummers… Guitarists… They’re leading worship too. Our musicians Skillfully play music that adds to the beauty of the service and sets the hearts of the people right. It leads the believer into the presence of God and sets the heart of the unbeliever to receive Jesus Christ.

Dance Ministry provides a stage for the spirit of God to move by ministering to the body of Christ through creative expressions of worship and dance, as artistic ministers representing the love of Christ and dedication to holy living. At ART, ministering dance is not a feeling, it's not something you want to do because you danced in the world and you think you'll be good at it, or you do it because you like to dance. It's not something you do because the garments are shiny and pretty or because you'll be in the spotlight.
Many ministries are separated by age (senior, adult and youth) or gender (male and female) that there are very few opportunities for everyone to minister together. ART Drama Ministry provides a medium for entire families to participate together: children, parents, grandparents and friends. Everyone can rehearse, perform and fellowship together. Also, no special talent is needed, just a willingness to perform (or help with the production. This has been a very effective medium in bringing the Gospel to our community through the very powerful media of mime, music, and drama.
