About the Music Ministry
The music ministry at Baptist Grove Baptist Church is a vital part of our worship every week. Comprised of volunteers, the choir and praise team lead meaningful worship to personify the Baptist Grove Baptist Church mission: Bringing people to Christ, Growing in Christ, Being one in Christ, and Constantly on mission. The worship team aspires to live out Colossians 3:16 which reads, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord."
A guiding scripture for the music ministry at Baptist Grove Baptist Church is Psalm 100
which reads, “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness;
come into his presence with singing.” Psalm 100:1-2

Cantatas and Special Events
Each year, the choir offers an Easter and Christmas cantata, as well as weekly special music for services. Yearly trips around the community while caroling make an exciting time for the church, especially with a piano strapped to a trailer while we sing Christmas carols!
Other Music Activities
In addition to the choir, various other venues for worship through music are available at BGBC! We are in the process of forming a hand bell choir and our children’s ministry provides an exciting worship experience in WEE Worship each Sunday. If you have a child who loves to sing, this is a great way to get them plugged in at BGBC! The children also perform an annual Christmas program telling the story of Jesus’ birth from the book of Luke.
The music ministry is open to all ages and there is no audition. We rehearse each Wednesday night at 6:45 pm in the choir room. If you are interested in joining the choir and taking a leadership role through the music ministry at BGBC, please see Devin Hocutt.
