Worship God with all of your heart

A ministry that helps people honor God through worship that is God-centered, Christ-exalting, and gospel-focused

Worship is our response to God from our heart, not only on Sunday mornings but coursing through our entire lives. The Worship Arts ministry aims to guide everyone who attends EP to be true worshippers, living sacrificially and serving and adoring our God in spirit and truth. Whether you are an adult, teen, or child, this is for you.

Worship-Leading Opportunities

Worship Choir

The Worship Choir is the largest worship-leading ensemble at EP, leading others to express adoration to the Lord in response to who he is and all he has done on our behalf.

Whether leading worship on a Sunday or practicing in a rehearsal, we purpose to be worshipers who bring glory to God with our hearts, minds, and voices—in short, with our whole being.

If you are an adult or teen singer and would like to try us out, we invite you to join us at our regularly scheduled rehearsal this fall on Wednesdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. No audition required. Choir resumes after summer break with a kick-off on Saturday, September 8.

New this year: Do you desire to have a better understanding of how to read music? Music Theory will be offered on Wednesday from 6:30 to 7 p.m. in Room 121B directly before choir rehearsal. This class will introduce the fundamentals of music notation, ear-training, and sight-singing. While this class will pair with what we do in choir rehearsals, you do not have to be in choir to take this course.

Worship Arts Kids

Worship Arts Kids participate in choirs, music, and drama courses. Our primary purpose is to glorify God through the arts, developing our creative gifts and offering the Lord our very best in worship. Worship Arts Kids participate in Sunday morning services and other special services throughout the year.

Snow White Musical

You are invited to Snow White Musical on August 18 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. featuring Sarah Griffith as Snow White and Noelle McDowell as the Queen. This show is directed by Angela Buehler and choreographed by Jennifer Coleman. Invite your friends, family, and neighbors to enjoy an event that will lead to conversations about identity.

Do we let the mirror of our self-perceptions tell us who we are? Do we let society place labels on us and define who we become? Join Snow White, Hunter, Queen Arabella, and the Dwarfs as they search for who they really are—and discover the true Prince! There is no charge to attend, but there will be an opportunity to donate at the door to help defray production costs.
