The Tech Team is made up of youth and young adults who run video cameras, lighting, and computer presentations for worship in the Concordia Center.
USHERS, GREETERS, AND ACOLYTES
Outgoing youth are always needed to help in welcoming guests, handing out bulletins, helping to collect offerings, and assisting the pastors in worship.
THE FESTIVAL CHOIR
The Festival Choir sings for the Christmas Cantata, which is a Sunday morning service featuring traditional choir music and orchestra. The choir of youth and adults meets for rehearsal on Wednesdays in November and December and performs the Cantata the Sunday before Christmas.
Join with the CK Deaf Ministry in signing a song in ASL (American Sign Language) during worship. Hearing-abled persons are encouraged to join - you'll get to know people from the Deaf Ministry and learn some sign language as well.
The choir sings once-a-month for Sunday morning services in the Sanctuary (8:00 and 9:15am) and meets for 1-2 evenings of rehearsal prior to singing. No choral experience or voice training is necessary, and no audition required. Click here for a full schedule of rehearsals and Sundays.

We will be able to impact the spiritual needs of the people by addressing their physical needs.

Registration is closed for this trip. Questions, contact Jayme Nichols, DCE
Sponsor a Student
Even if you can’t physically go on the trip this Summer, you can pray and consider helping one of our students go by sponsoring them. We have a lot of students who have a heart for serving in the name of Jesus this Summer, but the reality is it costs money to make it happen. Our Ohio mission trip will cost $700 per student and our trip to Montana will cost $1,300 per student. You don’t even have to sponsor the full amount, anything God lays on your heart would be helpful.
