The mission of the Calvary Baptist Church Music Ministry is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through song, encourage believers in their walk with the Lord, lead the congregation in worship, and provide an avenue through which individuals may share their gift and be an integral part of the worship service.
The family of Calvary enjoys music and loves to worship our Lord in song. As a congregation, we have the unique opportunity to sing together and unite our voices in praise. We do this through the heartfelt singing of hymns, choruses, and contemporary praise songs. We believe that God is brought great glory through the praise of His people and that our singing enriches our personal worship experience while encouraging one another. We encourage everyone who attends to participate in this opportunity to worship through music!
The adult choir is an integral part of our worship service. The choir is made up of a diverse group of enthusiastic people who love to share their testimony in song. The choir is open to all church members aged 13 and up. We rehearse Wednesday nights following Bible Study starting at 7:45 pm. The choir sings at least once per month and has the opportunity to participate in seasonal musicals. All church members interested in singing are welcome to join, no audition required! This is the perfect place to use your talents and gifts to serve the Lord and join your voices with those of like mind--all for His glory!
The Calvary Praise Team is a small group of singers who help enhance the worship services through their talent. This group spends time rehearsing more closely blended harmonies, creating a beautiful sound in order to better lead listeners into worship. The group's goal is to be used as instruments to help engage people in worship and to help connect hearts with the heart of the Almighty. Participation in this group requires a formal audition and a commitment of time beyond the Adult Choir Practice.
Audio and Media
While mostly behind the scenes, the work in this area is one of the more important components of our worship service. The use of audio and video equipment has become a vital part of every service offered at the church. Soundboards, microphones, computers, CDs, DVDs, visual images and Livestream are all used to enhance the service and facilitate a cohesive flow. The importance of this area of service in the church has grown in its importance over the last several years.
The Adult Handbell Choir, The Calvary Ringers, consists of 8-10 people ranging in age and musical ability. The choir rings several times during worship throughout the year. The rehearsal schedule is set by the group at the start of the church year. . No prior musical experience is necessary to ring handbells, but a good sense of rhythm, and the desire to have fun are essential. New ringers are always welcome!
As part of Wednesday night Team Kids, children in grades K-5 participate in weekly music with a focus on singing and playing handbells. The children perform songs through the church year and have an active role in the annual Christmas at Calvary Worship Celebration.
