Worship here is not the music we sing before the sermon, but instead worship is the response of the Christian life toward the only One who is worthy of worship, God. When we unite together in song during our services it is an outpouring of the heart, brought on by the overflow of joy welled up inside each worshiper. We long for true God honoring worship at Lincoln Avenue something more than just going through the motions. We are constantly integrating new music into o
ur services and bringing new life and meaning to the music that most of us grew up with. Our hope is that the time we spend together in worship through music and the study of God’s word is first of all God inspired and not generated by man, second that every believer come humbled and empty to filled with His Spirit, and last the it is something comfortable and natural, not something stiff and rigid that can dampen the movement of the Holy Spirit. Come join us Sunday Mornings at 10am and Sunday Evenings at 6pm for an incredible time of God centered worship.
The Celebration Choir is our adult choir, made up of people from every walk of life and every age. The choir is a great way to get involved and get to know a few new people at the same time. The choir has two 12-week seasons when we prepare for Easter and Christmas. We meet during these seasons on Wednesday from 6pm-7:30pm and traditional have special music services on Good Friday for Easter and the third Friday in December for Christmas. In the off season we will meet for short periods of time on Sunday at 5 before our evening service to prepare for other special music services we have throughout the year. Our choir is not made up of professional singers, many members have no training in music at all, but what we do have is a group of people who love the Lord and love to express their love for Him through song, and is open to anyone who shares that same love.
We have been gifted with several musicians who truly have a gift from God, and they love to share it. We are always looking to expand our collection of musicians. It is so great to be able to share and grow not only in Christ but also grow the gifts we have been given by challenging each other with new ideas constantly. This group rehearses every Wednesday night from 7:30pm till 8:30pm. I enco
urage you to bring your guitar, keyboard, harmonica, or what ever it is that you make music with and join us, our practices are always open.
The praise team has a great responsibility being out front. It is their responsibility to lead us to the throne room, to take you to the innermost sanctuary where we commune with God. There is no real audition to be part of this group, more like an interview to get to know you and most importantly about your relationship with God.
The Children’s Choir is a vital part of the music ministry at Lincoln Avenue, not to mention one of the most fun. This group prepares an Easter and Christmas production along with a few other special projects throughout the year, most of which end up being very comical whether intentional or not. The children’s choir is open to children ages 3 through 5th grade.
As you can see there as something for everyone here at Lincoln Avenue. If you have any question or need more information please fell free to call or email our Minister of Worship Rev. Jesse Ramsey @ 423-623-2903 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
