What Makes Art Redemptive?
Redemptive art is that which, at varying times, paints broad strokes or weaves thin threads of hope into the brokenness of the world. Redemptive art acknowledges the reality of brokenness, but does not herald that brokenness as the final word. All art forms engaged at the Mill are used ultimately to point people to Christ. Honest discussion about brokenness allows honest discussion about new life. Redemptive art, in its various forms, is used by God to encourage and inspire us to live fully in the new life he offers.
Worship Through Music
The Sounds of Praise Choir and Band is one of the most visible and dynamic ministries of our church. We believe the primary purpose of the choir is to lead the body of Christ in heartfelt worship. Sounds of Praise is comprised of formally trained and untrained musicians, lead worship in two morning services every Sunday. If you are a member of Fort Mill Church, gifted musically, and more importantly, if you have a desire to use your gifts for God’s glory, then we would love to have you join our team.
Choir: Wednesdays, 6:30-8:15pm, Chapel
Band: Tuesdays, 7:00-8:30pm, Sanctuary
Joining the Choir
The Sounds of Praise enthusiastically welcomes new members twice a year. We accept new members in February and August. Announcements will be made as to the specific dates of the membership process for the respective open enrollment periods.
Joining the Band
If you would like to be a part of the band, please contact the church office. The band adds a powerful dynamic to Worship at the Mill. It accompanies the choir and congregation as well as provides special music when requested. We are always looking for additional instrumentalists in every area of our band. You will need to have prior experience on your instrument, be willing to audition and commit to be faithful to the band’s rehearsal and performance schedule.
