Our Celebration Choir is open to anyone who attends Heartland Worship Center. There is no experience required. We only ask that you have a desire to use your voice to praise and lift up the name of Jesus and be committed to being at rehearsal and morning worship services. Our rehearsals are on Wednesday nights from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the choir room and we meet each Sunday morning at 9 a.m. in the sanctuary to warm up for morning worship.
The purpose of the praise band is to lead our congregation each week through instrumental music. They lead in our Sunday morning and Sunday night worship services. Being a part of this group requires an audition and an interview and that you sign our worship team covenant. Common instrumentation used in our services includes acoustic and electric guitars, bass guitar, piano and keyboards, drums and percussion, mandolin and violin. We do not, however, limit ourselves to the use of just those instruments.
Our rehearsals are Wednesday nights from 7:15 p.m. to 9 p.m., on Sunday mornings at 8 a.m., and on Sunday afternoons at 4:30 p.m. Bands will rotate on a weekly basis.
The Praise Teams serve our church as lead worshippers during our times of worship. Requirements include an audition, interview, membership in the Celebration Choir, and signing the Praise Team Covenant. Rehearsals are on Wednesday nights from 7:15 p.m. - 9 p.m., Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m., and Sunday afternoons at 5:00 p.m. Each team will serve one Sunday per month.
