The music and worship ministry at Evangelical Free Church of Chico (EFCC) exists to grow a multi-generational community of worshiping artists to become fully devoted followers of Christ, and to make Him known.
We propose to do this by providing:
. . . a place to SERVE
. . . a place to GROW
. . . a place to BELONG
The Praise Brass is a small “brass section” that augments the Contemporary Service worship team on occasion. They add a tremendous vitality to the team with energetic arrangements of the contemporary songs.
The Christmas musical is a great opportunity for the music and worship ministry community to come together to present the story of Christmas in a creative way. The Christmas musical choir is a combined choir that also includes singers from the community. They sing energetic, beautiful and compelling music along with new arrangements of well loved Christmas songs. In addition, dramatic and video elements are used to help present the Gospel through, as they share the Christmas story.
Our vision is to have an opportunity for children to sing together and share the gospel through music and drama.
We have many different opportunities for soloists (vocal, instrumental and groups) to use their talents to bless the church community.
On occasion, we will host a concert at our church and encourage the congregation to invite their friends and neighbors to attend. Some of these include Kings’ Brass, Taylor Mason (comedian/musician), and the African Children’s Choir.
The Praise Choir is a group of singers that help to lead the congregation in worship at the Blended and Contemporary services. This group embraces a modern vocal stylization and is very energetic. They have an opportunity to sing a couple/few times per quarter. They rehearse on Thursday evenings.
The tech team is a vital part of the worship ministry. They operate the sound, lighting and video/lyric stations in an effort to create distraction-free worship services and special events. This is a “behind the scenes” ministry that is very critical to the success of our services.
