Shady Grove Baptist Church Music Ministry

Music is a vital part of the worship experience at Shady Grove Baptist Church.  It has the power to create moods, change atmospheres and move people to action.  We believe that music is a legitimate means of expression in our church.  We also believe that God’s desire for music is to be a major part of our corporate worship.  Several scriptures support our belief that music is:

·         A means of praise and worship. Psalm 150; Revelation 5:8-10

·         A valuable teaching tool. Colossians 3:16

·         An evidence of Spirit-filled lives. Ephesians 5:18-19

·         A vehicle for Christian service. Psalm 100:1-2

·         An effective way to testify and express our faith in Christ. Acts 16:25-30

·         A source of comfort and encouragement. I Samuel 16:23

In our worship services you will experience a variety of songs. All of our songs are carefully chosen, insuring that they are biblically accurate and will edify believers in their faith. Words and phrases that would describe our music are: biblical, worshipful, energetic, spiritual, inspirational, and full of life!

While we primarily sing the hymns and spiritual songs that have stood the test of time, we believe the Bible teaches that praise and worship of God should also include new songs.  Scriptures supporting such thought are as follow:

·         "And they sung a new song, saying...for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation." Revelation 5:9

·         "Praise ye the Lord. Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints." Psalm 149:1

Because our worship service is focused on corporate worship, the emphasis of Shady Grove Baptist Church Music Ministry is our congregational singing and our choir.  However, we often incorporate solos, duets, ensembles and other small groups for musical expression to reinforce the biblical theme of the service.

The goal of Shady Grove Baptist Church Music Ministry is to glorify God and minister to the spirit of individuals, not appeal to the fleshly nature of people. Our music is not entertainment-driven, but God-centered.

We have active musical group for all ages:

·         Adult Choir: Service choir for Sunday morning worship.  Musical performances scheduled annually for Easter and Christmas.  The adult choir rehearses on Sunday night at 5:00 pm.

·         King’s Kidz: For children in the first through sixth grade.  King’s Kidz rehearse on Wednesday night at 6:00 pm.

·         Joyful Noisemakers: For children who are age three through kindergarten.  The Joyful Noisemakers rehearse on Wednesday night at 6:00 pm.
