Acapella and Instrumental
Acapella is simply singing without instrumental accompaniment and has been a way of singing throughout Christian history, although styles have changed. It is simple, beautiful, and highly participatory. More specifically for Altamesa, acapella singing is a big part of the heritage of Churches of Christ. Our acapella service (9:00 am) features our praise team and a song selection with new arrangements and old favorites.
Our instrumental service (11:15 am) features our praise band and a song selection that comes from worship music you might hear on contemporary Christian radio. The band has an easy sound of mixed vocals, acoustic guitars, a keyboard, and mild percussion.
From time to time we bring our two services together in a blended worship experience featuring both acapella and instrumental praise. These one service Sundays present a special opportunity to worship and fellowship together. On these Sundays our schedule will change for the day. No Bible classes will meet and the worship time will begin at 10:15 am.
