Worship and Music

"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture." -Psalm 100:1-3

Worship is a lifestyle of giving ourselves to God. Music is one of the many ways we do that, and we are mindful that each person has a very personal relationship with God. We seek to serve our congregation's various "worship voices" by offering distinct worship experiences in each of our services. We pray that in one or more you will find a place where you can experience the loving, healing, and encouraging presence of our loving God.

Our Services

 

9am Contemporary Service

Our 9am service is led by our house praise band, "The Blessed." Each week the band might be different, but usually we have guitars, drums, keyboards, bass guitar and singers. We strive to provide an opportunity to experience God's deep love in a way that connects with everyday life. Our music often sounds similar to the music you'd hear on the radio, but the message is profoundly different. Our band seeks to lead in worship, not perform. So each week we invite you to be "in the band" by singing, clapping along, and stepping into worship with God. The 9am is led by Dan Blessinger.

11am Traditional Service

Our classic service in the main Sanctuary features our Cathedral Choir along with organ, piano, hymns, praise songs, and special music. Periodically there will be performances given by the 5:19 Praise Band, Cathedral Bells, Children’s Choir, and special music performed by members of our congregation. Our 11am Classic Service honors the traditions that have bound Christians together for centuries and have been practiced at LCPC for over 130 years. Come hear The Lord's Prayer, the Apostles' Creed, and great hymns of the faith every Sunday. The 11am service is led by Gary Woodward.
