 Music & Arts Ministry

ministries-music-and-arts

During worship, we have a blended worship filled with contemporary and traditional hymns led by our praise team. At times this music brings people to their feet and their hands together and warms the heart and soul.

Choir We have an active choir that rehearses weekly from September to May on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Reading music is not a requirement, only a willing spirit! In addition to the choir’s diligence in preparing anthems for Sunday worship, the choir participates in an annual fall massed choir concert that raises money for Neighborhood Services, Inc.

Handbells From September to May, our Handbell team meets weekly to rehearse on Saturday at 12 p.m. The only requirements to play the hand bells are being able to count, and to know your left hand from your right!

Summer Special Music While choir is on hiatus, special music is provided by soloists and small groups. These Sundays where people of all ages share their talents, is a wonderful way to enjoy the summer!

Drama Another way in which we explore our faith is by sharing the talents of the Maynard flock through drama. With monologues, reader’s theater, litanies, and similar dramatic media, we experience God in new ways.

Youth Group

ministries-youth-drama

During the school year, the youth group meets twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Saturday from 6 – 8 p.m. at the church. Youth Group is an open and active group of middle through senior high school students (ages 12 – 17 years), welcoming believers, seekers, doubters, and those who just want to have fun. We invite youth to come, bring a friend, and grow with us. Come for the fellowship, stay for the journey.

Whether we were going on field trips, having lock-ins, or just hanging out in the parlor, our goal is and will be to encourage, strengthen, and meet each other’s needs… to reach out as a shining light to others in our own communities and beyond through service and love…and to have fun in the process.
