Do you have a passion for praise and worship? Is your heart to use your gifts and talents to lead others into God's presence? If so, you might just be a great fit for our worship team. If you are interested in joining, take a few minutes to look over and fill out the application below.
Some emphasize the truth without allowing the Spirit of truth to quicken that truth to the heart of the hearer. Such an imbalance can result in dry, formal, or even dead religion. Others emphasize the Spirit, without any grounding in the Word of truth. This can easily result in unrestrained fanaticism. When all too often a diluted message is producing deluded people, at River of Praise we boldly proclaim the whole counsel of God, while welcoming and encouraging the ministry of the Holy Spirit in our congregation.
Although true worship involves every area of our lives, our corporate gatherings are uniquely designed for celebration, thanksgiving, praise and worship. This is especially true of our weekend services. Our worship is spontaneous, yet in order and based upon the clear teaching of scripture. Therefore, all are invited to join us freely and without reservation as we worship God "in spirit and truth"
