The sole purpose of the Music and Worship Ministry of Alexander Baptist Church is to bring glory and honor to God our Father through worship and praise. We believe that worship is both our responsibility and our privilege as believers in Jesus Christ. When you visit one of our services, you will discover that our worship is much more than just singing songs and playing instruments. Instead, it is a time to come into His presence and offer Him our very best worship and praise because of Who He is and what He has done for us. The worship music at ABC is blended, including timeless hymns of the faith and contemporary songs of praise that are scripturally sound, accompanied by a variety of musical instruments. The goal of the ABC Music and Worship Ministry is to draw each person in the congregation into a place of “worship” each time we gather together to meet God. We pray you will join us as we seek to fulfill God’s main purpose for our lives—to worship Him.
This choir includes adults and high school students who are called by God to use their musical gifts and talents to lead in worship each Sunday morning. The Celebration Choir is also involved in the presentation of seasonal programs throughout the church year. Prior musical training and experience, though helpful, are not requirements for membership in the ABC Celebration Choir. However, we do expect all members to have a heart for worship, a testimony in their personal lives that will reflect a solid relationship with Jesus Christ, and a commitment to faithfully serve Him as worship leaders. Our desire is that our offerings of music in worship each week will help to draw the congregation into the presence of our Lord, will prepare the hearts of worshippers to receive the Word of God presented by Pastor Bryan, and will, most importantly, bring glory to God as we sing. The Celebration Choir rehearses each Wednesday at 7:35 PM.
This group consists of auditioned musicians who play piano, keyboard, guitars and drums. This group leads in congregational worship during our Sunday morning and evening services and for other special services throughout the church year. Members of this group must have a high level of musical ability and skill. In addition, each member must also have a personal testimony that reflects a heart for worship and a solid relationship with Jesus Christ. If you have an interest in auditioning for this group, please contact our Music Director, Jill Willoughby, or Worship Leader, Mark Hoback.
Hand Bell Choir
This group meets on Wednesdays at 5:15 PM. Our Angel Bells Choir rehearses weekly and plays in selected worship services during the church year. Members of our hand bell choir must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. If you are interested in our hand bell ministry, please contact our Music Director, Jill Willoughby, or Hand Bell leader, Hope Moss.
The ABC Kids Choir programs are available for children ages three through sixth grade. Choir provides an excellent opportunity for children of all ages to learn basic musical skills and concepts through a Christ-centered music curriculum which also teaches them to love the Lord and express that love through their worship and praise. Choirs are age-graded to allow settings and materials appropriate for each level of a child’s development. Our leaders are competent and committed adults who both love the Lord and love God’s children. Special seasonal programs are presented by each choir. In addition, there are opportunities for the children to sing in worship services throughout the year. We meet each week on Sundays at 6:30 PM from September through May.
