Worship and Music
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 worship God "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 are opportunities to serve in the worship and music ministry for all ages with rehearsals taking place on Wednesday evenings.
Our Celebration Choir
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 Wednesday evenings.
Our Celebration Orchestra
Talented musicians are a vital part of worship by leading our Sunday morning service at 10:40 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 strings, we would love for you to join us! We always need players in this worship ministry! The Celebration Orchestra rehearses Wednesday evenings.
The Student Ensemble
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! 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!
The Central Baptist Worship and Music Ministry
Choirs for preschoolers and children through 5th grade. It is such a blessing to praise our Heavenly Father and teach our children God's Word through His beautiful gift of music! This ministry strives to share with children the joy of knowing Jesus Christ, and teach them the skills necessary for listening, singing, playing instruments, and training them musically and spiritually to be future youth and adult leaders in the Church and community. These choirs present seasonal musicals throughout the year. Come, make a joyful noise! The Preschool and Childrens Choir meets Wednesday evenings.
Sound, lighting and video technicians coordinate their efforts toward quality presentations of Sunday services, including live broadcasts on local Cable TV Channel 12 as well as live streaming through Boxcast on the web and Facebook. Media support is invaluable for major productions in conjunction with music and drama. This ministry does not require extensive training or experience. Any special training needed will be provided. All that is necessary is appropriate ability, a desire to please God, and commitment.
