“Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.” Psalm 150:6
Music Director/Worship Leader David Edwards
We offer a variety of praise and worship experiences at PAUMC. On Sunday mornings at our 9:00 we offer a Traditional Worship Experience. The predominant accompaniment in this service is the church organ or piano. We sing traditional hymns with an occasional contemporary song and special music. Dress is casual. At the 11:00 am, we have a Contemporary Worship Service, an upbeat, casual, come as you are service. The praise & worship band (“ONE”) is the predominant presence to accompany the contemporary choruses in the worship service. We sing everything from hymns to pop Christian songs as called in this service, but the music and style are contemporary in nature. Typical full band accompaniments include a variety of instruments including keyboard/piano, violin, acoustic and electric guitars, bass guitar, and drums. Dress is casual.
We were Created to Worship
“Everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made." Isaiah 43:7 “Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.” Psalm 150:6 We are Commanded to Worship
"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment.” Matthew 22:36-38
The Primary Purpose of the Church is Worship
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” 1 Peter 2:9
One way we walk out these truths is through sung worship. As we come before our Maker and Redeemer with thanksgiving we meet our Living God in the house of worship. Through exaltation of Jesus we have an intimate encounter with a Savior. By abandoning our hearts with worship in our mouths, we honor the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and fulfill our place in the church as a worshipping people! Our Team Mission: Our purpose is to help people experience the presence of God while developing a life of personal worship, praise and thanksgiving to the Father. Our Vision: Our vision, as the Body of Christ unified in spirit and with a heart of purity, is to glorify God, to humbly serve Him in a spirit of excellence as ministers of music, and to lead others into His divine presence through praise and worship. Our desire is to create an atmosphere of high praise and deep worship through anointed music, singing, and other forms of biblical expression while utilizing modern audio and video technology. All that we do in praise and worship is for the glory of God and the edification of the Body of Christ.
>To be worshippers God seeks after, worshipping Him in spirit and truth with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength, and loving others as ourselves. To live a lifestyle of worship to Him alone.
>To support and submit to the Lord’s vision and extend the love of Jesus to all people so they may be encouraged to believe, belong, grow, and serve in ministry.
>To serve our Pastor, our guests, our church, and others as the Lord gives opportunity with our gifts and talents. >To create an environment where people can come and worship the Lord freely, expressing their hearts to the Lord. >To pursue God’s presence passionately in our individual lives, as a Team, and in our corporate worship, seeking to follow the leadership of the Holy Spirit, desiring Him to move freely, changing hearts and lives. >To offer opportunities for others who are being called to our Worship Team, who are first Jesus lovers before they are singers, musicians, or worship leaders, keeping our eyes on the future for the next generation.
