"Praise the name of the Lord in the courts of the house of our God." (Psalm 135)
The band leads worship at the contemporary servies (Sundays: 9:01, 11 a.m., & 6 p.m.) and has an innovative and unique worship style, outside of the boundaries of common "worship" music. The music is simultaneously innovative and sonically pleasing, and the message is clear. It's not about us. Influences on the Bel Air worship band style include David Crowder, Hillsong United, Chris Tomlin, and even the Beatles. For more information or to serve at one of the contemporary worship services, contact Kendall Payne.
The Bel Air Worship Choir participates in the 9 a.m. Sunday service from September through June. On special occasions, the choir sings at other services, seasonal worship events, concerts and festivals. Singers have the option of rehearsing on Thursdays (starting Sept. 1, 2016), from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., OR on Sundays, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, OR both! Meets in the Music Suite (beneath the Sanctuary). Previous choral experience and sight-reading ability are beneficial, but the primary requirement is a desire to join others in excellent offerings of music to God in worship. In addition to the public music ministry of the choir, members find a sense of community, encouragement and prayer support. For more information, contact Dan Korneychuk.
Special Events Choir
Are you a singer who isn’t able or ready to commit to the Worship Choir or Summer Choir, but would love an opportunity to join your voice with others for special events or just for fun? Please let us know so we can contact you when these opportunities arise, and tell us if you have specific interests like: men’s choir, women’s choir, gospel choir, contemporary worship choir, outreach choir, city-wide choral festival or….you name it! To get in on the fun, email Dan Korneychuk.
We are particularly excited about the Bel Air Children’s Choir, begun recently to participate in the annual Christmas @ Bel Air concerts. By popular demand, the season has grown, and this choir for 3rd-6th grade students will begin rehearsals on Sunday, September 18, and continue at least into April. Children learn basic musical concepts, good vocal habits, teamwork and performance practice AND what it means to worship God through music. For more information, contact Nancy Ruczynski, Director.
Summer Choir helps to lead worship in the 9 a.m. Sunday service during the month of July. Though full participation throughout July is ideal, it isn’t mandatory. We would love to have you join us for as many Sundays as you can. Summer Choir is great for those who want to give choral worship leadership a try and for those who can only make a short-term commitment. To RSVP or for more information, email Dan Korneychuk.
The technical arts (tech arts) team supports worship services, special events, streaming, sermon videos, and all audio/video equipment across our campus. If you're interested in serving on this team, contact Jett Whitworth.
