To glorify God in every aspect of worship

If God is prompting you to sing, play, or participate in dramatic presentations, or if you are interested in helping on the technical end (sound, lighting, staging, etc.), please come join us today!  God has placed something in you that no one else can bring to Northside’s mix, and we will not be complete without your contribution! Please contact one of our music ministry staff to find out more information:

To glorify God in every aspect of worship
To communicate who God is in a way that words alone cannot
To carry the life-changing message of God’s love and His Word outside the walls of the church
To allow people opportunities to give their talents back to God
To help train our children and youth to lead in worship

We sing, play instruments, dance, and present messages in music and drama at all levels of expertise. We believe that our creative God can be worshipped through many styles of music, and we try to use them all! God wants every one of us to make a joyful noise.

This is our only requirement: that it is for Christ! (Soli Deo Gloria, to God alone be the glory)
No matter how much or how little musical training, talent, or experience you have, there is a place at Northside to use it for God’s glory.

Involvement in the music ministry ranges from rhythm instruments and color bells for young children to handbells, praise band, choir, instrumental, musical and dramatic opportunities for all ages.

Please call Randy or Mitzi with any questions or for ways to plug in!

Drama and Music Programs

Northside has a growing Drama ministry. From Sunday morning and Wednesday evening vignettes to full-fledged musicals that go on tour. There are plenty of areas in which to participate: as an actor, costumer, set builder/designer, lighting or sound operator, and others. If you feel that God is leading you in this direction, contact Mitzi Mathenia.

Music programs are available to help develop skills used in praise and worship, including choirs, hand bells, bell plates and musicals.  If you have traditional musical abilities, can play an instrument, run sound or audio visual equipment, have something new and unusual to teach us  (stomp, mime, drums, dance….), love to sing, or would just love to help with logistics and crowd control, we would love to have you involved!   Please call Randy or Mitzi ASAP and we look forward to having you become a part of the artistic personality of Northside!

Soli Deo Gloria!
