Mineral Baptist Church music ministries provide a wide range of opportunities for every individual to learn, to grow, and to "make a joyful noise until the Lord!"
Music is more than a pleasant accompaniment to our worship services. It is an integral and valued part of our worship experience and our faith journey.
We worship God through a variety of musical styles, and we are certain that there is something for everyone, regardless of age, musical training, or background.
This dynamic group of singers and instrumentalists leads worship during our contemporary worship services, sharing a range of contemporary Christian music. We rehearse on Tuesday evenings and Sunday mornings.
This multi-generational choir leads worship during our traditional and blended services. Open to all interested teens and adults, the choir also prepares special programs and services during the Christmas and Easter seasons. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings.
Each year, volunteers from the community and from within Mineral Baptist Church join our Celebration Choir to present a Christmas Cantata, proclaiming and celebrating the promised arrival of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our 2017 Christmas Cantata, Forever God is With Us, shares the timeless message of hope, joy, and peace through this glorious truth - God is with us! Join the cantata choir, or come and be blessed as we present it at Mineral Baptist Church Saturday, December 16 at 6:00 pm and on Sunday, December 17 during our 11:00 am worship service.
These young singers gather on Sunday mornings right before Sunday School, so families don't have to come back out for special rehearsals during the week. Each month, the children sing as a choir during our 11:00 am services.
HANDBELLS & HANDCHIMES
Our handbell choir, handbell ensembles, and soloists regularly provide worship music during our Sunday services and special events, in addition to sharing their music as an outreach in the community. We welcome ringers of all ages – experienced ringers, as well as those who need instruction in reading music and the basics of handbell ringing.
Do you travel a lot? Are you always on the go? During the summer months, our Summer Choir is just for you! Join us each Sunday when you’re in town to lead worship during our 11:00 worship services.
THE MINERAL SPIRITS
This select vocal ensemble offers inspirational southern gospel music during worship services and at special church events. The Spirits also share their music in concerts, revivals, community events, and area Gospel festivals throughout the region.
Do you play a brass instrument? Whether you are concert-ready, or just looking for a place to blow the cobwebs out and get your embouchure back, this group of musicians will encourage and challenge you!
WORSHIP SETTINGS TEAM
Celebrating the visual arts as an expression of worship, this team provides the unique décor and settings for services throughout the church year.
We regularly invite musicians from within our church and throughout the region to offer concerts for the community. Upcoming concerts include:
The Charles Wesley Singers youth choir from Damascus, Maryland at 2pm Sunday, November 12. A cornerstone of youth ministry at Damascus United Methodist Church, this youth choir celebrates more than a quarter-century tradition singing in worship and on summer tours that have taken them throughout North America and abroad!
One Accord Gospel Band, celebrating four years in ministry Saturday, November 18, 4-7pm
PolyCeltic presents A Celtic Christmas at 6:00 pm Sunday, December 10 in historic Mineral Baptist Church sanctuary. PolyCeltic features Michelle Matts on Irish flutes and penny whistle, Tom Abernethy on hammered dulcimer and guitar, and Chris Lucas on guitar and vocals.
Our worship & music ministries continue to grow to meet the needs of our church family – children, teens, adults, and seniors. Contact us or check the church bulletin & Music Ministries Facebook page for upcoming concerts, worship services, and events.
