Worship Ministries at Bethany

If you are interested in serving in the worship arts community here at Bethany, click anywhere in the box to contact our worship arts pastor, Chris Logan.

To worship together is to respond to God’s mercy together (Romans 12:1). We do that here at Bethany in many ways, but the arts – singing together, visual art, technology, among others – have a special place in both the gathering of our community and its sending on God’s mission in the world. Our goal is to create space for our congregation and guests to experience God together through these arts. Worshipping God together is an invitation to participate in the life of God’s people as God guides us.

The Worship Team leads worship through music and singing through vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, drums, bass guitar, keys, and other instruments. The Worship Team draws music primarily from contemporary Christian artists and worship leaders such as Hillsong United, Elevation Worship and Maverick City, Bethel, Austin Stone, All Sons & Daughters, Kari Jobe, and many others.

The Sanctuary Choir leads and inspires our congregation in worship through leading singing and performing anthems. Our repertoire includes classical works, and the Hymns of the church. Being part of the choir requires commitment, discipline, and hard work but as we learn, grow, and serve, we have a great deal of fun and a deep sense of fulfillment. Contact our choir director, Liz Logan, to express interest or for more information on rehearsal times.

Our technology team, also known as the Audio / Visual / Lighting (or AVL) Team, serves behind the scenes to make the projection, sound, and broadcasting (live-streaming) environments helpful to our congregation and guests. This team includes our audio team (sound console), our projection team (pro presenter), and our broadcasting team (cameras and video switchers).

Bethany Chorale

The Bethany Chorale is a select chamber choral group for singers who have a passion, skill, and desire to perform more advanced choral music during worship services.

Seasonal Children’s Choir (K – 5th Grade)

Our children’s choir sings seasonally.

7th – 12th Grade

All of our arts ministries are excellent opportunities for middle and high school students to be involved in music at Bethany. Our students work side-by-side with adults to learn and grow in both their musicianship and in their faith as we lead our congregation to God in worship through music together.

Handbell Choir

The Handbell Choir accents our traditional worship service on a monthly basis. Music reading and previous ringing experience in helpful, but not required. Bethany Covenant Church plays a four octave set of Malmark Handbells and a three octave set of Malmark Handchimes.

Chamber Music

Different Chamber Music groups are formed at Bethany, on an ad hoc basis.

The Creative Arts Team is responsible for curating the visual space of our sanctuary and lobby, including our seasonal art shows and other illustrations of a visual nature to help our congregation experience God in fresh and creative ways.

We believe God loves creativity and art because God is, first, the Creator of all things; God is an artist. The vision of the Bethany Music Series is to provide cost-free concerts of great music for the Berlin-and-beyond community. Each year, we host four concerts of a variety of styles made possible by the generous donations of local businesses and individuals. For information on how to support the Bethany Music Series, contact the church office.

Concerts are free and open to all ages!

Our music series team, in consultation with church leadership and town officials, made the difficult decision to cancel the music series until further notice. We want to be sensitive to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 situation and its impact both locally and around the world. We encourage you to be in prayer for our nation’s leaders and healthcare professionals who are on the front lines of response to this challenging situation. Thank you for understanding!
