Worship Ministry

Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth.
Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.

Why We Worship?

Worshiping the Lord is a lovely way to show love and gratitude to the one who gave us life. We acknowledge all the blessings we have received from Him as we enter His House in thanksgiving. We acknowledge God's goodness, mercy, and love for us when we come to Him with a grateful heart. It serves as a reminder that everything we possess is a gift from Him, and that it is our responsibility to worship Him in return. "Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms," the psalmist writes in Psalm 95:2. Being thankful in our worship of the Lord causes us to see His mercy and grace more clearly and makes it possible for us to live a life of perpetual thanksgiving.

Because we are confident in the Lord's fidelity, dependability, and worthiness of our worship, we serve Him with joy. Everything in this world is under the rule of our sovereign God. He made us for His own glory and wants us to live lives that reflect His honor. The psalmist declares in Psalm 100:2–3, "Bring joyful singing before the Lord and serve Him with gladness. Recognize that the Lord is the only true God; we were not created by ourselves, but by the Lord." A joyful heart in worship is an act of obedience that deepens and strengthens our relationship with the Lord. We are reminded of His love for us and the sacrifice He made for us on the cross as we serve Him joyfully, and this inspires us to live a life that pleases Him (Romans 5:8).

Because of His creation, His love, and His mercy, God is deserving of praise. The apostle Paul states in Romans 1:20, "For ever since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without defense." Everything we see and experience is a sign of God's nature and creation, and it shows how powerful He is. We give thanks to God for who He is and what He has accomplished for us. When we worship the Lord with a heart full of praise and thanksgiving, we can get to know Him better and feel His presence more deeply.

Celebration Choir

The Celebration Choir invites everyone who wants to help lead our congregation in worship to join them. Every Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m., rehearsals are held in the choir room, and on Sunday mornings at 8:15 a.m., they are held in the sanctuary. The choir sings at most Sunday morning worship services and at special events like a Christmas concert.

Music Maker's

Music Makers is a music class designed for students in grades 2 to 5. The goal of this class is to teach children basic music ideas like rhythm, music notation, and harmony in a fun and interesting way. We utilize coral music, and students have the opportunity to sing once a month. This program is a great way for kids to have fun and improve their musical skills at the same time. Music Makers meets every Wednesday at 6 p.m. in room 216. For further information, please contact Leo Barros at lbarros@ibctemple.org. We encourage parents to bring their children to participate in this enriching and fun-filled music class.
