WHAT ARE THE TIME COMMITMENTS?
On the weeks you serve, you are committing to roughly 15 hours of devotion to The Lord. With respect to worship, The Bible consistently speaks about the skill with which musicians were to play (Psalm 33:3; 1 Chronicles 15:22; 25:7; Exodus 35:35). Many have been gifted with musical ability, but true skill requires consistent practice which is, itself, an act of worship (Romans 12:1, Genesis 22). We believe that proper preparation allows us to be more present and authentic in our praise during weekend services, both individually and as a team.
Below is a typical schedule/expectation for a volunteer playing/singing at services on a given week:
Sunday – Wednesday (3.5 hrs)
-Listen to, practice, and memorize the music for Thursday rehearsal and service
Thursday Night (3.5 hrs)
-Monitor check, prayer, and rehearsal (4:00 pm-5:30 pm)
-Thursday Evening Service Responsibilities (5:45 pm–7:00 pm)
-Clean-Up and Post-Service Debrief (7:00 pm–7:30 pm)
Friday – Saturday (1 hr)
-Sharpen/review any musical parts for Sunday.
Sunday (6 hrs)
-Sound-check, prayer, and brief run-through (7:00 am-7:45 am)
-Sunday Morning Services Responsibilities (8:00 am-1:00 pm)
*This time breakdown neglects to list and is assuming that all serving time is a result of and occurs in conjunction with a team member’s growing relationship with Christ (daily time in prayer/reading the Bible, weekly consistency in life groups/weekend worship services.)
