Worship Groups


3 Years – 5th Grade

Preschool Music

Children ages 3-5 meet on Wednesday nights at 6:00 PM during the school year for music, movement and worship experiences. They are featured in Sunday morning worship at times, and present special programs at Christmas and spring. Contact Laura Lindsay, Kids Worship Arts Coordinator, for more information.

Kids Worship Arts

During the school year, kids Kindergarten-1st grade meet in room 207-209 on Wednesday nights at 6:00 PM, and 2nd-5th grades meet in room 200-206. By experiencing and participating in various musical, visual and technical arts, kids learn what a life of worship means, and they discover ways to develop, express and give their gifts back to God! These groups participate in Sunday morning worship at various times throughout the year, and present special programs around Christmas and during the spring. Contact Laura Lindsay, Kids Worship Arts Coordinator, for more information.


Youth +

Sanctuary Choir (multigenerational worship choir)

This is a non-auditioned choir for teenagers, college students and adults that meets most Wednesday nights in the Choir Room from 7-8:30 PM. This worship-leading group enjoys great community, sharing and rehearsing to express praise and devotion to Jesus. Sanctuary Choir leads in weekly Sunday morning worship and presents special, seasonal concerts, including Christmas and spring. A new season begins each August and runs through June, with a break at Christmas. However, new singers are welcome at any time. There are only 2 requirements for participation, 1) the ability to match pitch, and 2) a commitment to regular rehearsals and worship. For more information, contact Mark Groves, Assoc. Pastor for Worship and the Arts, or Sharon Hogan, administrative director in the Worship Ministries office.

Central Winds (orchestra)

The Central Winds (woodwinds, brass, percussion) are a vital part of leading and enhancing the worship experience on Sunday mornings. We are currently also inviting string players to join the group. Though this is a non-auditioned group, experience is necessary. Central Winds plays in worship regularly, and often with the Sanctuary Choir for special, seasonal concerts. Rehearsals are Wednesday nights in the Orchestra Room, 7:00 pm-8:30 PM. For more information, contact Trey Lindsay, Director of Instrumental Music, in the Worship Ministries office.

Central Brass

This select brass ensemble rehearses Sunday afternoons, 4:30-5:30 PM, and contributes to worship gatherings and special events around Central Bearden. To learn more, contact Trey Lindsay, Director of Instrumental Music, in the Worship Ministries office.

Worship Band & Vocals

The Sunday morning worship band and vocalists lead the church in weekly worship on a rotating basis. Players include keyboardists, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, drums and more. This group also participates with the entire Worship Ministries for special concerts and events.

Audio/Visual Tech Team

Do you love serving in the background, or have skills mixing audio, running lights or screen/video presentations? Yes?! Then this is the place for you! Our great group of tech volunteers and staff run the technical components of Sunday Morning worship including live broadcast cameras and audio, in-sanctuary cameras, audio, lighting, and screens. To find your place with this team, please contact Sara Watson, Production Director, in the Worship Ministries office.

Central Bearden Ringers

We have opportunities for experienced handbell ringers to rehearse and play together for Sunday worship and special seasonal events. The group rings 4 octaves of bells, and has rehearsed a various times. We are looking toward resuming a handbell ensemble soon, so don't hesitate to reach out if you have interest.
