Our Worship Ministry exists to glorify God as one body with one voice through one Spirit. We seek to humbly lead others through a transforming and interactive worship experience to God’s powerful presence in corporate worship.
OUR GOAL is to help individuals involved be the best they can be for the Lord expressing God’s Word in all aspects of music, drama, and the arts. Morning traditional, contemporary, and alternative contemporary worship services in the worship center. There is also a Sunday morning acoustic piano praise worship service upstairs called The Upper Room. We also have an evening worship service in the worship center. If you have questions contact the church office at (480) 839-0926.
The Worship Choir helps lead our congregation in worship during the 8:00 & 9:30 AM Sunday morning services, except for the last Sunday of the month. Membership is open to anyone who is age 11 and above. No audition is required.
Rehearsals are held each Wednesday from 6:30 to 8:15 PM in the Intersect Room and will conclude in the Worship Center.
Childcare will be provided during Wednesday Choir rehearsal for infants through Elementary age children, upon request and reservation.
The Worship Choir also participates in a Fall Retreat, musicals, and on occasion at various church family functions throughout the year.
We have multiple Worship Teams that serve with us each weekend for all of our services. For our 8 AM Service, we have a larger Worship Team that sings 4 part-harmony (SATB). For our 9:30 & 11 AM Services, we utilize a smaller Worship Team that harmonizes in 2 part harmony that is consistent with the arrangement of our music. All of these teams are open by audition; to schedule an audition, please contact Rob Swanson at (480) 630-6130.
Our Orchestra plays every Sunday, except for the last Sunday of the month, in the 9:30 AM service, and rehearses on Wednesdays from 6:45 to 9:00 PM.

FBC Worship Academy
Our mission is to "equip the saints for ministry" (Eph 4:12) by training musicians to play with skill to the Lord. (1 Chron 25:7). We will be offering training opportunities in various instruments throughout the year.
Drama provides visual lessons that illustrate worship and sermon themes with principles for living. Dramatic interpretation may be as simple as a brief reading or sketch acted out with emotional zeal, or it may fill a majority time slot to help teach a valuable truth. This team is a growing ministry that would value your participation and creativity. Please contact our Drama Coordinator, Julie Huver at (480) 839-0926 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our technical team is a group of people who use the technical elements of video, lighting, audio, graphics, and multimedia to support and enhance the message of the gospel. We are responsible for the creation and distribution of all technical elements in a service at Grace. We set up and tear down all non-musical equipment and operate Sound, Lighting, Camera, and Multi-Media Video and Projection material. If you'd like to join this team, please contact Rob Swanson at (480) 630-6130.
