ministries of worship through

Music @ Westwood

Music plays a central role in worship and spiritual life here at Westwood. For over six decades, our church has shared the stories of our faith and spread the good news of God’s unconditional love for all through song. In the church, music ministry begins with the congregation. We believe the congregation has an active role to play in singing the church’s story. Our musical ensembles are an extension of the congregation’s voice, enhancing our worship on a weekly basis. They also provide opportunities to:   

  • deepen our faith  

  • offer joyous praise to God  

  • serve through engagement with the community  

  • fellowship with others 

Everyone has a place in the ministries of worship through music—you can sing, play your instrument, serve as an assisting minister, participate in Reader’s Theater, assist with camera operation, video creation, and much more! Westwood has ensembles and opportunities for every age group and musical ability. These ensembles are great ways to connect with others and use our gifts in worship and praise. 

​ 

If you are interested in joining any of the ensembles at Westwood or would like more information about ways you can serve in the ministries of worship, please contact G. Phillip Shoultz, III, Cantor for Music, Worship and the Arts, or the director listed.
