Purpose of Worship Ministry
The purpose of the Clarke-Venable Worship Ministry is to lead others into uncompromised worship of God and to give God the honor, praise, and glory that He deserves. As we participate in reaching Newton County and touching the world for Jesus, the Clarke-Venable Worship Ministry will lift up Christ, listen to His voice, and lead others to desire Him above all else.
The Clarke Venable Worship Choir is a great opportunity to Serve in the Body of Christ. This group leads worship in both morning worship services and participates in special events throughout the year, including the annual Joy of Christmas each December and Night of Worship each May.
The Worship Choir rehearses on Wednesday from 7:30-8:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. Childcare is available. To get involved, just show up to a rehearsal! A greeter will be there to assist you in getting your music, finding a place to sit in your voice part section, and introducing you to some new friends.
There is no audition for choir membership. Soloists and Praise Team members are auditioned from the choir.
Impact Student Choir is a practical way for teenagers to connect with God, to connect with others and to connect with Ministry. This group meets on Sunday afternoons at 4:00. Students have the opportunity to use their gifts to serve God by leading in worship, while emphasizing the importance of living a life of worship. This choir leads worship on Sunday morning at least once a quarter and on Sunday night at least once a month. The Impact Student Choir engages in a Tour/Mission Trip each summer.
Preschool, Music Time for 3’s
Music Time for 3’s is a great way to allow your three year old the opportunity to have fun singing and playing instruments while learning about God’s love through music. This is not a performing group, but instead, an opportunity for preschoolers to develop a love for music in a safe and fun environment.
Ignite Preschool Choir for 4’s & 5’s
Preschool choir begins to introduce children to what it means to worship God through music. This group will have fun learning simple songs with basic hand motions. The Ignite choir will sing several times throughout the year during ongoing services.
We believe that every child should be significantly and continually involved in one of our Kids Choirs. Choirs meet each Wednesday evening at 6:15 pm.
Engaged Choir for Grades 1-3
Engaged choir builds on the foundations taught in preschool of praising God through our music, while giving kids more opportunities to lead in worship. Engaged will sing several times throughout the year including Clarke-Venable’s annual Fall Festival, The Joy of Christmas, and ongoing services.
Empowered Choir for Grades 4-5
Empowered choir gives kids the opportunity to use their gifts to serve God by leading in worship, while emphasizing the importance of living a life of worship. Kids will be encouraged to let their love for God inside their heart flow out into everyday life. Empowered will lead in worship throughout the year in ongoing services. They also will sing at the annual Fall Festival and in The Joy of Christmas presentation. The Empowerred Choir will present a spring musical in May with music, drama, and choreography.
