The worship and music ministry of Central Baptist Church exists to bring glory to God and provide opportunities to bring people into the presence of God. Worshipers are able to participate through choir, orchestra, drama, and various musical groups. It is our desire to see all people experience God by worshipping Him in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:23-24). Worship is a time where we connect with God, our Savior and our Lord. It is an act of pure adoration and God is worthy of all our praise! There is an opportunity to serve in the worship and music ministry for all ages with our rehearsals generally taking place on Wednesday and Sunday evenings. Regardless of age or musical background, Central has something to offer to you!
The Celebration Choir is an excited group of worship leaders who desire to lead the Church in seeking and finding God, the one true audience, through weekly special music. We also minister in other ways throughout the year, such as seasonal music events. Smaller groups such as quartets, trios, and ensembles are selected from the Celebration Choir. If you are high school age and above, we would love for you to join us; enrollment is always open for this choir, and there is NO audition for membership! The Celebration Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 6:50 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the choir room below the Sanctuary.
This group of talented musicians are a vital par t of worship at Central Baptist Church and lead in our Sunday morning service at 10:45 a.m. They also take part in seasonal music events. The requirement for this group is good music reading skills, and a minimum of 2 years experience on an instrument. If you play an instrument, whether woodwind, brass, horn, percussion, or stringed, we would love for you to join us! We always need players in this worship ministry! The Celebration Orchestra rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 6:50 p.m. in the Sanctuary.
The Student Ensemble is all about students serving God through their musical and dramatic talents. You do not have to be a "soloist" to join, just have a heart for worship. It is about passion for worship more than about musical talent! It is so exciting to see students grow and develop in their relationship with the Lord! The Student Ensemble leads in worship throughout the year, and has the exciting opportunity to attend summer mission and music ministries. This group is open to all students in middle school and high school. Come join us - we would love for you to be a part of this exciting group!!
