The FIRE Church Worship Department exist to be a people that are Loving God, Building Community, and Changing the World .
Loving God – Loving God on a daily basis, in our everyday lives and in every area of our lives, is our main purpose. Our goal as a team is to exemplify our love for God in our corporate meetings, as well as to His Church, our families and to the world.
Building Community – Building Community goes far beyond our corporate services. We desire to be a people who love others as Christ loves us. We believe one key way to building healthy, godly community is to share life together on a regular basis. Becoming a part of a Life-Group (please refer to the FIRE Church life-group link) is very important and is one step on the road to building community within our body. We also encourage all of our team members to attend our monthly fellowship times as a way of building this authentic community experience.
Changing the World – Changing the World takes place when, as a result of Loving God and Building Community, we discover and utilize the spiritual gifts that God has given to you. We encourage you to help reach out through our areas of ministry by way of corporate meetings, outreaches and special events at FIRE.

Monthly – Monthly fellowships are foundational in building a family atmosphere within our team. We make it a point to get together at least once a month for an extended fellowship time. These fellowships are often agenda free times of hanging out and laughing over a few snacks and a cup of coffee.
Retreats – Each year our department takes one weekend in the spring and one weekend in the fall to get away for a team retreat. The main purpose of these retreats is to further build a deeper family relationship within our team. We also take these times to focus on team building, workshops, devotionals, and teachings.
Rehearsals – We desire to bring glory to God through the gifts He has given us, i.e. our instruments and voices. We believe in being good stewards of these gifts and that is why we have weekly rehearsals. During our rehearsal times we work on vocals, as well as arrangements for our worship songs. We’ve found that through these rehearsal times, our relationships with one another as family and musicians have deepened, and our love for God has grown.
Spiritual – We encourage all of our team members to continually go deeper in their walk with the Lord. We know that our spirit man must be strong and in line with God in order for the rest of our life, including musicianship and worship, to function properly.
JOINING THE DEPARTMENT
There Are Many Opportunities – There are many opportunities within our department to serve, even if you are not a musician or singer. We openly welcome anyone who feels called by God to be a part of our department and we love welcoming new members into our spiritual family.
Open Heart Night – Anytime someone is interested in joining our department we have what we like to call an “Open Heart Night!” The purpose of this night is for us to get to know those interested in joining the department and for us to share our hearts with them. These nights are the beginning of building deeper relationships with those who join the department.
