Explore the worship opportunities for all adults at New Providence Presbyterian Church
Our worship community is a place to celebrate all kinds of musical artists. Join us as we breathe in Christ’s call to respond in worship and joyfully live it out together. Here you will find creative opportunities to put the gifts God has given you to His good work!
In our contemporary worship we seek to skillfully magnify God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in order to lead others in worship. If you have experience singing, or playing guitar, bass, drums, keys or other instruments in a contemporary setting and love to worship God, this is the ministry for you. Ability to sight read and improvise helpful but not necessary. Training available. Applicants should be members or regular attenders of the church age 14 and older.
