Worship

Worship is the motivation behind everything we do, it is what we were created to do. 

Worship Anytime

You don’t have to wait until Sunday morning to worship. Instead, any moment can be worshipful whether you are getting ready, commuting, or eating dinner. Here are a couple playlists we have put together that feature some of the songs we have been singing and some staff favorites.

“I want to audition”

Before you audition

We appreciate your interest in RCC Worship. We know that auditioning can be intimidating, but don’t stress – we want you to be comfortable. You will audition individually with our Worship Director and one or two other musicians if needed.
If you are currently involved at another church, we ask that you stay committed to that church – we believe in local churches and partner with them to reach our community. If you have decided to call Redeemer home, we are excited that you want to take a step into deeper community with the Worship Team.
We look forward to meeting you and hope you have a great audition.

Audition Tips

  • Please be prepared for your audition. Know all of your parts on all four of the audition pieces.
  • We play from chord charts, and rarely from music scores.
  • We are looking to know that you can learn your parts by listening to a recording.
  • Don’t overplay.
  • Be able to receive direction/criticism, even if you don’t agree.
Vocals
For your audition, you will be expected to know both the lead and harmony parts and to stay on your respective part.
Pay attention to the timing and style of vocal movements in the recordings.
Please refrain from excessive vibrato and unnecessary ad libbing.
Electric/Acoustic Guitar
Pay attention to tone and pedals (e.g. delay, reverb, etc.) in reference to our typical style in worship.
Play lead or rhythm guitar for the whole song, don’t alternate.
Pay attention to strumming and picking patterns.
Know how to use a capo.
Bass Guitar
Be in sync with the drummer, following the kick-snare patterns.
We want you to know your parts/patterns even though you will audition without a drummer.
Drums
We use a stripped down kit similar to a Parish Chapel Kit – kick, floor/rack toms, ocean snare, crash, ride, hi-hats, & shakers.
Maintain a similar style to the typical feel of worship on a Sunday.
You will play with a click track, so you must be comfortable with a metronome.
Keys
We use a Nord Stage 3, so please familiarize yourself with other sounds like pads, organs, etc.
Think simple, but be aware that some of the songs have specific progressions/fills and you will need to know these.
Additional Instruments
We typically use the above instruments, but we often have the opportunity for other instruments to be added to the mix (e.g. mandolin, pedal steel, fiddle, etc.).
Be aware of the other instruments and try not to stick out when not appropriate.
