1. Proper Stage Posture. "everything we do on stage communicates"
Our time on stage worshipping should be a continuation of what is happening in our lives. Come with your hearts prepared. We value authenticity and transparancy.
Our dress should be modest and humble.
2. "On Time Is Late"
Rehearsals begin promptly at 6:30p on Wednesdays and 8:00a on Sundays unless otherwise communicated.
3. Rehearsal is required.
We need you to be there on time and ready to go! Because we are a team, missing you means the entire team suffers.
4. Read your emails & Overcommunicate.
Occasionally changes are made to schedule and times. Read your emails, Log into planning center and block out dates, sync planning center with your phone tablet or computer calendar.
When you recieve a scheduling email, look it over and accept or decline. If you don't accept or decline, the scheduler/worship leader does not know if you will be there.
Provide as much time as possible when you need to decline.
5. Everyone Helps Out:
Learn where mics, earpacks, etc. are. Learn how to change batteries.
Put things away at the end of the worship time. Every Sunday - mics & ear packs. On tear down Sundays we ask that everyone help! This will make things easier on everyone.
6. Rehearsal is a dress rehearsal:
All technology for Sunday morning should be tested and setup to work as it should. Make sure the monitor mix is what you hope it will be. The more bugs we work out at rehearsal, the less hectic Sunday morning should be.
7. Team Player
Offer ideas for arrangemnts, email song ideas to Russ, etc. Ideas may or may not be used, but all of them are seen as valuable.
Don't play all of the time. On your own, listen to original arrangments and come ready and informed of when to play and when to back off.
"A great sounding band acts like a conversation rather than an Italian kitchen". -Sherrie Gould
Come to rehearsal having at least listened to the music, and especially work on any new songs.
Each team member is expected to be responsibile to grow musically and spiritually on their own. This is your responsibility, however we as a church seek to help eachother take one-step-forward. If there is something you would like direction on, please let us know.
