At MPC, we believe worship is our human response to God for all He is with everything we are – our full intellect and emotions; our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
Everyone comes from different backgrounds with a variety of stylistic expectations which is why we offer three different styles of worship service each Sunday:
A Contemporary Service at 9:00am led by a praise band with gifted worship leaders who love the new trends in Christian music. This service features professional ASL interpretation for the deaf.
A Classic Service at 11:00am featuring the singing of traditional hymns, liturgical elements and our Celebration Choir.
A Casual Gathering at 5:00pm which offers modern music, interactive Bible messages and fellowship. This service meets in the Downstairs coffee house.
All services offer relevant Bible teaching and we celebrate Communion the first Sunday of each month. Watch or listen to sermons online.
If you have any questions about worship or are interested in joining the worship arts ministry, we’d love to hear from you! Please contact our Worship Arts Director, Dan McGowan at 805-529-8422, ext. 104 or at DanM@MPCLife.org.
Here are ways you can become involved…
THE CONTEMPORARY PRAISE TEAM
Our 9am praise team is made up of skilled musicians with an ability and desire to help lead our congregation in worship that glorifies God and encourages the body. Additionally, you may want to be a part of our 5pm praise band. Please contact Dan McGowan if you are interested.
Our choir sings for our Classic service. We present choral songs, cantatas and more. We rehearse on Thursday nights at 6:00pm. If you have interest in being a part of our adult choir, please contact Dan.
GUEST MUSIC AND WORSHIP LEADERSHIP
Do you have a yearning, skill or nudging from God to help lead worship for our services? We like to invite guest worship leaders, singers and other creatives to use your gifts to God’s glory. Please let Dan know of your interest!
HAND BELL CHOIR
Our hand bell choir is open to musicians who love to create instrumental music together and have above-average musical and music reading skills. For more information, please contact Joslyn Tillar at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are always interested in inviting “non-regulars” to participate in our worship services. This can be as a singer or instrumentalist – or both! If you have a desire to share your gift with us, please contact Dan.
