Music is an essential part of ministry at Westside. 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.
Our adult choir is an active part of our worship services in preparing hearts to receive the Word of God. The adult choir provides an opportunity for learning new music, working together in harmony, proclaiming God’s Word in song, and encouraging one another through prayer and acts of kindness.
Westside’s kids choir is open to children age 3-11. We practice Sunday mornings during Children’s Church and on Wednesday evenings with Kids 4 Truth. The kids Choir will often sing for special occasions such as Missions Conferences, Easter, Veterans Day services, and Christmas. This is a great opportunity for kids to not only learn the how to sing, but also learn ministry involvement and use their talents/gifts at a young age.
The Westside Baptist Orchestra is an important part of our Sunday services. Their role includes everything from accompanying congregational singing to offertory specials. The orchestra includes strings, winds, and brass.
OTHER MUSIC GROUPS
Westside also has many small groups that share through music as well. These include Brass Ensemble, mixed instrumental groups, Choral ensembles and vocal trios/duets.
