Music

Move Button Move Button

Music is an essential part of the ministry of Westside Baptist Church. The Psalms often refer to God’s people singing a “new song” or the “Lord’s song.” At Westside, we emphasize the importance of music as an act of worship, bringing the Lord a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving each week as we gather in His presence.

Ensemble (8-12 vocalists)

This dedicated group of singers present specials periodically throughout the year. Their presentations help prepare hearts to receive the Word of God. They enjoy learning

new music, working together in harmony, proclaiming God’s Word in song, and encouraging one another through prayer and acts of kindness.  

 

 

Kids 4 Truth Singers 

During Children’s Church and on Wednesday evenings with our Children's K4Truth program they are learning new songs and enjoy singing together. The Music/Services Director schedules for special occasions such as Missions Conferences, Easter, Veterans Day services and Christmas. When the children have a song they have been working on at other times they may be added to the Sunday morning service. It is an opportunity for kids to not only learn the techniques of singing, but also learn ministry involvement and use their talents/gifts at a young age. 

 

Orchestra

The Westside Baptist Orchestra is an important part of our Sunday services. Their role includes everything from accompanying congregational singing to playing offertory pieces. The full orchestra includes strings, winds, and brass —a fitting collection of musicians to offer a praise service to the Lord! These instrumentalists are using their talents for the Lord Jesus Christ by faithfully participating in our Sunday morning worship services. The rehearsal times are 8:30-8:50, each Sunday AM.

 

Other Instrumental Groups 

Westside also offers a Brass Ensemble and mixed groups of instrumentalists to minister on Sunday mornings and other special services.

The Brass ensemble meet weekly on Thursdays at 9:30-10:30 AM.

 

Soloists and Small Groups

Instrumental and vocal soloists and small groups present often in our services. They usually choose their music and acquire their accompanist. Rehearsals vary according to when they are on the schedule.
