Adiaphora is the name of the Contemporary Worship Team at Shepherd of the Hill.
The term Adiaphora comes from the Greek and is interpreted as "those things neither required nor forbidden"
The ministry team consists of the musicians and singers that make up the 'praise band'
but includes much more from the junior high students who serve as acolytes and audio-visual
support to the person who assembles our visual slides. We work together to create a
comfortable and meaningful worship experience for regular traditional churchgoers as
well as those seeking something a little different.
Saturday evening service is liturgically driven, meaning attendees will recognize
the format and order of service. It "feels like church". The setting is, however
less formal. Pastor does not 'vest' for service and the overall feel is more casual.
The message, however, is the same as Sunday morning.
Our order of service has been developed with considerable feedback from those
who attend. Hymn suggestions and requests are welcome. The music is a mix of
Christian Contemporary, traditional hymns-with-a-swing and inspirational popular
music and standards. Hymns are selected to reinforce the message of the day while
encouraging congregational singing. Nothing makes us happier than hearing people
humming the hymns as they leave after service.
The praise band routinely consists of piano, guitar, bass and various rhythm
instruments and guests often drop in playing brass, winds, harp and other instruments.
Rehearsal is on Thursday evenings at 7:00 in the church sanctuary and new members are always welcome.
