At Nazareth, there are many different opportunities to engage in worship via music.

 

Nazareth Choir

The Nazareth Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Chapel.  This is a choral ensemble designed to serve vocalists from ages 13-102 (and beyond) who are called to serve in worship by enhancing the spoken word with beautiful song.  We offer opportunities to participate in weekly worship. Directed by Dr. Nicki Toliver and assisted by Nathaniel Parrish, this special ministry family supports a safe learning environment for the developing voice of any age and does not require an audition. Come one; come all, with a servant's heart!  New members welcomed anytime! Contact Dr. Nicki Tolliver for more information at nicki.toliver@naz.org.

 

Small Ensemble Worship Band

Rehearsals for the small ensemble worship band are generally Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Worship Center. This ensemble normally uses vocals, piano, acoustic guitar, bass and drums.  Contact Nathaniel Parrish, Director of Music Worship Arts, at nathaniel.parrish@naz.org for more information.

 

Full Worship Band

Rehearsals for the full worship band are generally Thursdays from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the Worship Center. This band uses vocals, muliple guitars, keyboards, drums and bass. Members serve on a rotating basis.  Contact Jordan McDonald, Director of Music and Worship Arts, at jordan.mcdonald@naz.org for more information.

 

Bell Choir

The Carillon Ringers is an adult bell choir that rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 5:45-6:45 p.m. in Room 207. Led by Nathaniel Parrish, this ensemble presents special music on several Sundays throughout the year.

 

For more information on Bell Choirs or to sign up, contact Nathaniel Parrish, Director of Music and Worship Arts, at nathaniel.parrish@naz.org for more information.

 

Special Music, Instrumental and Vocal

We are always looking for vocalists and instrumentalists who wish to participate either as a soloist or within an ensemble for any of our worship services.  Email Nathaniel Parrish at nathaniel.parrish@naz.org if you wish to be included in such a capacity on an as-needed basis.

Nazareth's worship and music ministry team has many opportunities for non-musicians to participate in Sunday morning services.  At each of our services, we rely on volunteers to assist with greeting, ushering, serving communion, and reading Scripture.  If you are interested in joining one of the teams below as a way to serve during one or more of the Sunday morning worship services, contact Nathaniel Parrish, Director of Music and Worship Arts, at nathaniel.parrish@naz.org for more information.

 

Ushers/Greeters

This team serves by welcoming congregation members, guests and visitors as they arrive each Sunday morning at NAZ.  Some members also assist with gathering the offering and assisting with other worship-related responsibilities.

 

Communion Servers

This team assists with worship by serving communion to congregation members and guests.  Training is provided.

 

Scripture Readers

This team provides worship support by reading an assigned Scripture passage at the opening of each worship service.

 

Tech Team

This team is responsible for assisting with the worship service from a technical prospective including running the sound board and slide shows.  Contact Jordan McDonald, NAZ Director of Music and Worship Arts, at jordan.mcdonald@naz.org to volunteer or for more information.
