Worship Ministry

 “Sing to the Lord a new song, play skillfully, and shout for joy.” – Psalm 33:3

Worship is our response to God for who He is. Praise is our response to God for what He has done. At SBC, our Worship Ministry is founded and built upon these 2 principles. We were created to worship God, whether we are on or off the platform. When we are on the platform, our goal is to eliminate distractions and to lead the congregation in admonishing God with the praise and worship He deserves. Our ministry environment is fun, relaxing (but also hardworking), and welcoming of those with all ranges of ability and skill. It doesn’t matter if you graduated from college with a music degree or just love to make a joyful noise, we have a place for you! Check out below for the different ways you can get plugged in!

 

Worship Choir

Love to sing?  We have a seat waiting for you in our Worship Choir.  The choir is made up of individuals of all different ages and musical skills. It does not matter if you know how to read music or not, everyone has a place. The choir helps lead in worship during Sunday morning services, Nights of Worship, and other events throughout the year. Rehearsals are on Wednesday nighst at 6:30pm in the Choir Suite just off of the Commons Area. If you are interested in joining the Worship Choir or have any other questions, please see Pastor Corey or email him at corey@sbcsouthside.org.

 

Praise Band & Orchestra

Love to play an instrument? We got a place for you! The Praise Band & Orchestra is the primary worship-leading instrumental group at SBC. They lead at Sunday morning services, Nights of Worship,  and other events throughout the year. The Praise Band is comprised of our rhythm section, which includes: guitars, drums, and keys. The Orchestra is comprised of string, brass, and woodwind instruments. Rehearsals take place on Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm in the Worship Center. The first half of rehearsal is instrumental only and is led by orchestra director Michael McGlaughn. For the second half of rehearsal, we combine with the Worship Choir in preparation for the upcoming Sunday’s worship service.

Faithful commitment to rehearsal/services, an informal interview/audition, and a certain level of musical proficiency is needed to serve in this area. If you are interested in serving in this ministry or have any question, please see Pastor Corey or email him at corey@sbcsouthside.org.

 

Technical Ministry

Our “Tech” Ministry is the backbone of the Worship Ministry at SBC. Though most of the time they go unnoticed, they are essential to what we do. Our goal is to eliminate distractions and help faciliate worship throughout all of our services and events. This is a ministry that is constantly growing in what they do and are always in need of new volunteers. Having skills in a tech area is always a plus, but the willingness to learn and work together with others is all you need! Check out below for a list of way you can serve in the Technical Ministry at SBC:

  • Audio Mixing
  • Lighting
  • Lyric/Video Projections
  • Setup and tear down for Nights of Worship/Events
