“It is good to praise the LORD, and make music to your name, O Most High…” Psalm 92:1
We take worship seriously here at South Baptist Church! Worship is a part of our DNA….we were created to worship. It is through a lifestyle of worshiping Christ that we find our greatest fulfillment in life. In order to help Christ-followers of all ages move toward this goal, South Baptist seeks to cultivate a culture of worship through many different kinds of ministries. Ministries such as choir, vocal & instrumental worship teams, Acting Up drama team, handbells, musical & drama productions, kids choir, kids chimes, worship services, congregational choir and special music are all designed to foster a passion for worship in the hearts of Christ followers! Of course, all of these things require the extensive use of technologies available for use in our auditorium and throughout our campus. We have a growing Technical Team that provides the support for all of our events. This includes audio, projection, lighting, video production, live web-streaming and disc duplication.
Worship Opportunities at South:
Anyone can be a member of this, our largest “choir.” Blending great songs of worship from both the past and present, it is a privilege and thrill to join our hearts and voices together in praise to the Lord each Sunday!
This choir presents one fully dramatized musical each year. The picture to the right is from the Christmas Musical entitled “Polar Pet Park.” It was an exciting program, and included not just our Kindergarten – 6th graders, but some of our younger children, too!
Kids Chimes Choir
Children learn the basics of ringing bells, reading music, and playing periodically in our services. Rehearsals take place on Sunday afternoons during our adult Worship Choir rehearsal several weeks before playing (for children in 3-5 grades).
Jr. High & High School Students
Using a variety of instruments, our students enjoy an exciting worship experience at their gatherings on Wednesday nights. Teens also lead in worship in our Sunday services through solos, Vocal Worship Team, drama and technical team.
“This choir is for high school teens and adults, and we sing as scheduled during our Sunday morning worship services. Larger dramatic or musical productions are another fun aspect of this choir. There is always room for more singers!”
Special Music Ministries
Open to members, age 16 and up, who are musically gifted to sing or play solos, duets, trios and ensembles in our worship services. Songs are usually chosen based on the worship theme.
Instrumental Worship Team
Church members age 16 and up, who have at least 4 years experience playing an instrument can join. This team accompanies congregational singing during Sunday morning worship services.
Vocal Worship Team
Church members age 16 and up, who demonstrate an higher level of vocal ability can join. Rotating teams are scheduled to sing in 2-week intervals. Teams rehearse at 8:15 pm on the Wednesday night prior to the first Sunday of ministry.
These exciting events, when scheduled, are open to all church members ages 16 and up. Additional rehearsals are scheduled as needed.
Acting Up Drama Team
Through the use of comic and dramatic sketches, choric readings, and reader’s theatre, our Drama Team endeavors to present the gospel and share biblical principles in a fresh and dynamic medium. Worship drama is presented regularly in our Sunday morning worship services. Our major seasonal productions are presented on a rotating basis, including Easter Musical/Dramas, Dinner Theatre, Coffee House, and more. These involve a great deal of team effort and preparation including staging, set production, and costuming. These programs are presented as a tool for outreach into our community and as a means of encouragement for our own congregation.
