What is Worship?

Worship is a dialogue between God and His people. Our goals are to create an atmosphere of worship that embraces both believers and non-believers, to create exemplary worship that allows complete and free-flowing communion between worshipers and God, and to utilize and grow the gifts and talents of the Spirit among worshipers.

*For our musical worship, we invite musicians of all experience and skill levels to join us. To find out how to join a group, please contact the musical director for that group.

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir sings weekly on Sundays during Traditional Worship at 10:45 a.m. from September to May. The choir also prepares for a combined music ministry Christmas Concert in December as well as an annual Palm Sunday Concert, featuring choral/orchestral masterpieces. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings (September through May) from 7-8:30 p.m. Choir is open to ANYONE who has ever wanted to sing- all ages are encouraged! Prior choral experience is very helpful, but the only requirement is the desire to make a joyful noise to the Lord as we lead His people in worship.  New members are always welcome at any point during the season.  Please check in to see how you may use your voice to the glory of God.

The Summer Choir will continue for the first 4 Sundays of August.  Anyone who wishes to come sing in the choir on Sunday mornings should meet in the choir room at 10:00 am to learn an easy anthem and introit. No experience is needed, just a desire to help lead God’s people in worship through song.

For more information, please either e-mail Mark Gary at markg@sapctucson.org or call (520)382-2115.

Contemporary Worship Team

Join our worship band on Sundays at 9:00 am in the Sanctuary for a spirit-led and joy filled time of music. From songs you hear on the radio today to hymns that have a modern feel; whether you are brand new to church or you’ve been attending for years, you can expect to feel familiar with the music in service each week. Through singing, prayer, and spending time with God; our goal is to lean deeper into the presence of God and to give back to God everything He has given to us through our praise and our singing. We can’t wait to see you on Sunday!
