The Music Ministry at Voluntown Baptist Church is thriving! We hold
strong the Biblical mandate to "sing and make melody" as the Bible
tells us to do. We use our voices as well as instruments in praise
of God Almighty.
"19 addressing one another in psalms and
hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with
your heart," Ephesians 5:19 (ESV)
"16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing
one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
with thankfulness in your hearts to God." Colossians 3:16 (ESV)
"19 addressing Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord
a new song, his praise in the assembly of the his
faithful people!" Psalm 149:1 (NIV)
Under the guidance of a very gifted director and with the
talents of an organist, pianist and/or guitarist, our
volunteer choir lift up their voices and hearts to Our
Lord in praise. They intertwine their voices in beautiful
harmony as they perform hymns and other spirit filled songs
during our Sunday worship services.
During special times throughout the year, we are blessed to
hear our children sing their praises to God as well! With
joyous enthusiasm they share their love for Jesus Christ
and often times incorporate ASL (American Sign Language) as
Praise is a volunteer group whose focus is to connect the
congregation with the Lord through the gift of music, as
well as to strengthen our own relationships with Him.
Singing contemporary worship songs, they perform both with
and without the congregation's participation during Sunday
worship services utilizing performance tracks and/or
accompanied by a live guitarist.
