Worship

The CCCV Worship Ministry is a community of brothers and sisters who love the Lord Jesus, people, and music. This team is for those who desire to use their musical talents to bring glory to God by leading His church in song. In addition to singing or playing an instrument during services and other events, those serving in the Worship Ministry must learn and practice the music at home and attend rehearsals.

The Worship Ministry serves in a variety of places beyond the main church services. These include conferences, special events, youth and kids ministry services, VBS, retreats, outreaches, and more. These may take place at various times and on various days throughout the week.
