MUSIC & FINE ARTS DEPARTMENT
Our Purpose Statement
Our purpose is to be used by God to fulfill Levitical principals as recorded in the Holy Bible. The choir is set apart for the cause of Christ to set an atmosphere conducive for the working of the Holy Spirit through spiritual songs and praise. This enables the liberty and freedom of the Spirit of God to minister supernaturally through our leader for salvation, healing and deliverance in the congregation (2 Chronicles 20:21-22). Each Sunday, the choir sings songs that exalt, worship, glorify, and praise the God of the Bible.
The Upper Room Sanctuary Choir is filled with a body of believers full of the Spirit of God and eager to do warfare through song. We are the primary source of music for the church. When the melodious voices sing the praise of God, wounded hearts are healed. The depressed spirit becomes lifted and your heart is ready to receive a word of knowledge. Yes, your heart will be lifted. The Sanctuary Choir boasts 75 voices strong and is still growing! Come, hear and be blessed through this awesome music ministry. We can be heard every Sunday morning.
A smaller and more intimate anointed group of men and women who usher in the praises of God. These unique, handpicked group of singers also live under the anointing of 2 Chronicles 20:21-22. You will hear this awesome and power packed group at the beginning of every service. Yes, we prepare you for what God is going to do in our services.
Men and Women's Choirs
Maybe you’re not ready for the Sanctuary Choir and/or time doesn't allow you to commit to weekly singing and rehearsals. This special group of men and women usually perform on special occasions primarily during the men's and women's conferences. However, they are extremely important to the ministry and their talent is second to none!
Youth and Sunshine Band Choirs
Upper Room Youth are one of a kind; eager and aggressive to learn the things of God. Their growing voices are full of God's praises. This group works in the Generation Now Kids/Youth & Young Adult (Y&YA ) Department. They have even formed their own youth “Church House Band”. Children ages 3 to 18 are welcomed.
Feet of Praise Dance Team
"Feet of Praise" is a ministry of liturgical dance. Everyone has a time where they dance before the Lord. The music and song allow dancers to highlight the lyrics through dance. Whether we are at home, in church service or in a public setting, we all experience arm movements, foot stomping, toe-tapping and swaying or rocking to the music.
The ministry is unique because it offers a group of dancers who love the Lord an opportunity to dance before the Him. If you are one that just can't sit still during a time of praise and worship or if you are one that just needs to show the Lord how you translate a song through dance movements, then you are an ideal candidate to join our ministry.
Yes, there are times when singing the part just isn't enough. Our Theatrical Ministry is certainly anointed of God. The talents of the individuals who participate are greater than you can even imagine. The performances capture the hearts and minds of the people. It opens the door of reality in showing the Bible in it's truest form. Our in-house play writes are anointed to their God-given inner thoughts of Scripture.
