At Shenandoah Baptist Church, the preaching of the Word of God and the praise of his people are the heart of our worship. The music ministry exists to touch the heart of God's people and bring glory to Him through music.
It is our desire to “Sing unto the LORD, bless His name; show forth His salvation from day to day.” Psalm 96:2. Words of praise and worship fill the Scriptures, and it is our privilege to worship the Lord through song. The choir, orchestra, ensembles, and soloists feature music that is inspirational and designed to uplift the heart of God’s people and speak to the needs of those who do not know Jesus.
The main goal of the Shenandoah Baptist Church Music Ministry is to exalt Christ.
Our mission is to support, motivate, train, and direct those whom God has called into the music ministry with a spirit of service, excellence, and humility.
Through the music of Shenandoah Baptist Church, we seek to bring honor and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ. We endeavor to communicate the truths of God’s Word and help draw people closer to the Lord. We believe that Christ-honoring music prepares hearts for the preaching of His Word.
Christians are admonished to praise the Lord with all of their being. Each and every church service, we have numerous opportunities to communicate with the Lord through music. We believe that music should minister to our spirit and not our flesh, therefore, our music is conservative in nature, yet full of life and enthusiasm. Sometimes our song is praise. Sometimes our song is comfort. Sometimes our song is petition to God. Sometimes our song is proclamation of God’s faithfulness. Whatever our song may be, as recipients of the grace and mercy of our Lord, how can we keep from singing?
The Adult Choir and Orchestra
The choir and orchestra of Shenandoah Baptist are a dedicated group of singers and players that come from all walks of life and join together for the purpose of glorifying our Savior. The choir sings every Sunday morning and evening. In addition to the weekly services, the choir and orchestra also serve in annual Christmas and Easter programs, and other special performances. The choir and orchestra provide a unique opportunity for those who wish to serve the Lord with their musical talents. The choir meets on Sunday afternoons for practice before the evening service. For more information, you may contact the church office.
Every Christian is encouraged to make a joyful noise unto the Lord and that is our desire. The entire congregation sings each service a mixture of hymns and choruses that teach us about God’s character and attributes and provides an opportunity for us to offer praise, adoration, and worship to God. All the music of Shenandoah Baptist Church is designed to bring glory to God and prepare our hearts for the preaching of God’s Word. Praise, not performance is our goal.
