Worship & Music

Worship is at the heart of who Incarnation is as a community of faith. It takes a lot of people serving in a lot of different ways to make four worship services of diverse styles happen each week. Interested in being a part of it? There is a place for you.

Worship Teams

Worship_Sweeney usher (358x640)Being on a Worship Team is a low commitment, but important service opportunity.  Most worship team members every other month. Under this model, lay Worship Team Leaders create schedules for their teams each month, based on team member availability, and communicate the schedules to the team. Worship teams are comprised of greeters, ushers, information center hosts, worship assistants (readers), and communion servers. Orientation is provided for any these ways to serve.

Being on a Worship Team is a low commitment more important opportunity, with the goal of having everyone serve an average of once every other month. Under the Worship Team model, you can serve one way one month, and another way the next month. The more people who join Worship Teams, the easier it is to spread the service opportunities evenly. Worship Teams gather prior to worship each Sunday, check in with the leader, and are a part of a pastor-led prayer before serving. Seasonal service worship teams are also formed when needed for each seasonal worship service offered at Incarnation.
