FCC Music Ministry
The music ministry at Faith Community Church exists to make glorious the praise of God in Christ. We aim at excellence, skill, and depth in musical expression, but more importantly we aim at genuinely engaging in truthful, spiritual worship of God. This is what the apostle means when he speaks of “making melody to the Lord with your heart” (Ephesians 5:19). We do not aim at a particular style of music; rather, we desire to sing songs that are true, beautiful, and congregationally appropriate, and to use the musical gifts God has given us to make these songs our own. In addition, we desire to equip the people of God to worship more fully and richly through teaching and providing resources on the subjects of worship and music.
Because corporate worship is such a weighty matter, our musicians are all believers in good standing with Faith Community Church. And because we value skill and excellence, we encourage musicians to actively develop their gifts in such ways as receiving ongoing training, helping train other musicians, and participating in the musical life of Kansas City.
In addition, a level of spiritual maturity is absolutely necessary for serving the church in making glorious the musical praise of God. Musicians as a group tend to envy the spotlight, and those who would serve musically must understand their role not as performers but rather as worshipers.
If you have questions about getting involved in the music ministry, please feel free to call the church office at 816-455-0991 or speak to Matthew Swain, our Minister of Music.
