Live the Life
Welcome to Mount Olive Baptist Church!
"I will sing of the Lord's great love forever; with my mouth I will make Your faithfulness known through all generations." Psalm 89:1
Music is a vital part of worshiping God. Scriptures teach us to "sing a new song to the Lord." Praise and worship are lifted to God through music. We glorify God through our music, and it is for this reason we have a music ministry at Mount Olive Baptist Church. The music ministry is one of many ways the church reaches out to meet the needs of the people. Our music is centered on Jesus Christ. Everything we do through music is for His honor and glory.
Our worship services are designed to allow everyone to be a part of praising God. We believe the word "worship" is a verb, actually an action verb. In other words, worship is something we do, not something we watch. We encourage everyone to participate in the services through singing, praying, and any other opportunities to worship God. The music used in worship is a blend of praise choruses which give straight praise to God and the great hymns of faith which give praise to God along with telling stories of why we praise Him. Music specials are presented by one of the various choirs and by soloist or ensembles. The music in our worship services here at Mount Olive are designed to encourage all generations of people to be involved in worshiping God, a way to unite the heart of man with the holiness of God.
Involvement in the Music Ministry gives you the opportunity to worship God and lead others to do the same! Regardless of your age or musical background, the Music Ministry has something to offer you, including both vocal and instrumental music, as well as drama.
The Celebration Choir is our adult choir. Adults who are beyond high school age through the senior adult years are welcome to join this choir. There is no requirement of reading music to be in this choir. We take it as our responsibility to help you grow in music skills as we work together from week to week. The Celebration Choir meets once a week for practice (Wednesday evenings at 7:20 p.m.) This choir performs major outreach programs, such as those during Christmas and Easter musicals, along with other special worship services. You will find a wonderful atmosphere of love and acceptance by being a part of this choir.
Our Senior Adult Choir, Senior Sounds, is made up of Christ-loving senior saints ages 55 and up who love lifting up their voices for the Lord. Our Senior Choir has led in worship and has presented various musical programs. If you, like us, believe that you can never retire from God's ministry and love to sing, come join our choir. The Senior Sounds Choir meets every Wednesday afternoon at 1:00 p.m.
Through our children's choirs, we train the future music leaders in our church. Every effort is made to teach basic music and worship skills, and most of all, the joy of music. Children are allowed to express themselves through the music. Our music leaders are wonderful with the children, and through their efforts, the choirs grow every year. Choir meets every Wednesday at 6:15 p.m.
If you are interested in praising the Lord with your voice, and would like to be a part of our music ministry, please contact the church office for more details.
We'd love to have you!
