“It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before Him in their worship. God is sheer being—Spirit. Those who worship Him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.” John 4:23-24
At Grace in Pagosa we seek to pursue and promote a lifestyle that reflects that kind of adoration–praise and worship–for God in all we do. Our Sunday morning worship service is led by our Praise & Worship teams, incorporating music from multiple generations that is both theologically rich and contemporary in nature. Each Sunday morning we seek to refresh the hearts of the people gathered at Grace by leading them in authentic worship that reveals God’s glory and love, points to the truth of Jesus Christ, and reveals the presence of the Holy Spirit in our everyday lives.
Our Worship Arts Team is led by Pastor Jason Rose, who seeks to build, equip, and encourage his team in a spirit of worship through excellence and humility. We offer an evening of worship for women called “The Stream” on the 2nd Wednesday of every month led by Denise Chaney and Nicole Cotts. We also have special times of worship on Good Friday and Christmas Eve.
Are you looking to be a part of the worship team? Our worship teams exists to use our musical gifts to lead our community in heartfelt worship of our God of grace! The following will provide you with more information and certain requirements we are looking for!
1. Attend Grace in Pagosa for at least 6 months.
2. Be a team player!
3. Ability to read music charts. (Chord Charts/Lead Sheets)
4. Fill out a “Grace Worship Team Application”. The application is not long, but it helps us get to know you and your heart, and will give you a more detailed description of what we are listening for in the demo that we will ask you to submit. (For example, as a vocalist we are listening for your ability to sing & stay in tune and hear harmonies, and as a musician-your ability to play in time with the music.)
5. Submit a demo of yourself singing or playing your instrument. Nothing fancy here–you can simply record yourself on your phone singing/playing along to a song on the radio.
Worship Team applications are available at the Grace Office or can be emailed to you. Grace Office Phone: 970-731-6200 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
