Celebration Worship Choir
The Worship Choir is a very important part of the worship at Ridgecrest because it "propels” the congregation into the presence of God. Therefore, worshipers are needed for this group. People who are quick to express their adoration of the Lord and are genuine in that expression can add greatly to the choir’s goals. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings in preparation for services and special presentations.
Celebration Rhythm Section
Consisting of guitar, bass, drums, percussion and keyboards, the Rhythm Section players must have the ability to "hear” their parts in a song without the exact notes being written out. They must also be able to read chord charts and be able to learn these parts quickly. Anyone interested in serving the Lord and congregation in the Rhythm Section will audition to determine playing ability. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings in preparation for services and special presentations.
Celebration Worship Orchestra
The Orchestra is made up of wind and string instruments. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Sunday mornings from 8:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. in preparation for services and special presentations. Orchestra players must be able to read written parts at an upper high school or college level ability.
