Worship Arts & Media play a crucial role at Meadows
The arts communicate the beauty of our Creator; connect His people to their Creator; and they allow God’s people to express their love, devotion and thankfulness to Him in a way that words fall short. Whether it’s singing, instrumentalists, painting, design, drama, or technical arts, they are all used at Meadows as ways to respond to God for who He is and what He has done! We invited you to come and be a part of the response!
For more information contact Tim Groves, Worship Pastor
Meadows Worship & Media Ministry exists to create experiences that make visible the invisible God.
This Month's Set List
The Praise Ensemble is a group of worship leaders that sing as part of the larger praise team in the 10:45 Worship Experience – The Gathering. This group of singers is focused on expressively leading worship and leading as much through their physical posture as much as their voices. If you are interested, please let Tim Groves know!
GOSPEL CELEBRATION CHOIR
Celebration Choir leads worship in the 9:15 worship service. They have a deep love for the joyful worship experience. They sing everything from toe tapping southern gospel choral arrangements to the latest cutting edge choral music. The GCC meets each Wednesday at 6:30pm. No audition needed, just show up!
Various others groups (such as a Gospel Quartet and men’s ensemble) sing more modern vocal arrangements, meet throughout the year and sing at regular times in multiples services. Audition/invitation only. (See Tim if interested)
Currently, we have two praise teams comprised of instrumentalists (guitars, bass, drums, percussion, keyboards, strings and horns) and singers of varying ages and skills unified by their common goal of reflecting God’s beauty through the excellence of their craft. If you are interested in joining the praise team, please contact Pastor Tim at 972-423-5683. Audition/invitation only – if you are interested in auditioning, please let Tim Grovesknow!
MEADOWS JAZZ ORCHESTRA
“MJO” is a team of talented “hepcats” who love to use their musical gifts to glorify the Lord and they play music of varying difficulty. This is a great place for everyone from the seasoned player to the young learner. We are always looking for more instrumentalists – ages high school and up! You are welcome to come join us every Sunday afternoon at 4:00PM for rehearsals.
Our media team is integral to Meadows Worship Ministry! Since the impact of COVID-19, our streaming ministry has become our number one on-ramp for folks to engage our worship services! Without the Media Team, we would be blank!
Each week, the “CG” operator leads worship through their service in image magnification, song lyric and sermon points projection. As well as graphic design of sermon series and other events. This creates the ability for all to be literally ‘on the same page’ for each element in the worship environments.
The sound engineers ensure the quality of sound in each service for both in-house and streaming services by actively engaging each element in the service with their ears! The importance of volume, balance and mix are of utmost concern as the sound operator serves each week.
Lighting is one of the most powerful elements to help convey an emotion, tell a story and produce an effect. The lighting operator is an artist in their own right, they work to express, through their medium, the ’emotion of the moment’.
The Camera Operator is responsible for maning camera for our weekly streaming worship services. This team is also responsible for creating, shooting and editing various online content. If you are interested in joining this team contact Roy Beavers
Since the impact of COVID-19, Meadows has begun streaming online services. We use a multi-camera approach to each service and the Video Director is in charge of choose the shots that are use both in-house and online for each of our worship services.
