The Mt. Pocono UMC Worship Team

The purpose of the Worship Team is to worship God, and in doing so to lead the church congregation into His presence.  We seek sensitivityfrom the Holy Spirit as we come together, united through music and media, to praise and glorify God.  We are a family of musicians, singers and multi-media technicians, united in our dedication to better the team and enhance the worship experience of the congregation.

We believe that worship is primarily about encountering God.  We desire to draw near to God each time we gather by turning our attention away from the pressures and distractions of our individual lives and towards Him through our praise and worship.  Worship allows us to engage God with our whole hearts, our whole minds and our whole selves with humility and honesty.


The Mt. Pocono UMC Praise Band


The purpose of the Praise Band, as an element of the Worship Team, is to provide spiritual, engaging worship that will lead the congregation into a meaningful experience with God.  We believe that music is an intimate and personal way to communicate with God, and that through the Holy Spirit, we can unite our hearts and minds to show our love and thankfulness for the blessings in our lives.  While we humbly strive for excellence, sensitivity and strength in our worship, we believe that pure worship is beyond us as individuals and is only about God.


The Praise Band, throughout the years, has included instrumentalists on guitar, bass, drums & percussion, keyboard, trumpet, French horn, saxophone, flute and recorder as well asmultiple vocalists.  Our worship consists of contemporary praise and worship music.  



The Mt. Pocono UMC Multimedia Technicians


The purpose of the Multimedia Technicians, as an element of the Worship Team, is to provide beautiful, vibrant worship that leads the congregation into an enhanced experience with God.  We believe that worship can take place through many forms, and our ministry supports the congregation as they seek the face of God during worship services.  We arededicated to strengthening the visual and auditory components that enrich the congregations’ worship as they encounter God through songs, videos and media presentations.


The Multimedia Technicians run videos, music and presentations through our computer, as well as control the audio for the Praise Band, Worship Leader and Pastor.
