Music Ministry

Music is a vital part of worship and ministry in the life of Second Baptist Church. As we lift our praises, we are inspired to carry our faith into our daily ministries.

The Well Worship Team

The Well Worship Team exists to join with, encourage, and lead the congregation into the presence of the Lord, to create an atmosphere where the presence of the Lord can dwell. If you are a worshipper with musical gifts, if you have a heart to see others commune with the Lord in worship, if you believe that God has called you to lead others in worship, then the Worship Team wants you! We meet on Thursday evenings for rehearsal, Sunday mornings for soundcheck and worship services, and throughout the year for fellowship. If you would like to audition, contact Hilliary Larsen or Karin Goude for more information.

Children’s Choirs

For children, as early as infants, Second Baptist Church provides a place for them to begin their musical training in Wee Praise. For children, preschool through grade five, that opportunity takes place on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 through 6:45 p.m. First and Second grade children may take advantage of a Chime Choir and children can be a part of Children’s Handbells, each meeting at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesdays.  If you are interested in having your child take part, please contact Wanda Kensinger at for details.

Student Handbells

Ringing handbells is a great way to expand musicianship skills and collaborate with peers, especially in preparing music for worship. No experience is required, though some general music reading skills are helpful. This ensemble meets on Sundays from 4:30-5:00 pm and is open to any middle or high school student. Performance opportunities include worship in the Sanctuary service at Second Baptist, as well as other venues in our local community.

Student Choirs

Student Choir is open to any Middle or High School student that loves music and wants to learn how to share that through singing. The choir learns a variety of music – choral, global, modern, etc. – and leads worship in a variety of contexts throughout the school year. Rehearsals occur each Sunday from 5:00-6:00 pm in the choir room. Special trips, choir tours, and excursions are planned throughout the year!

Adult Choirs

Singing is one of the primary ways we express our faith and belief as Christians. In choir, singers learn to work together and teach others about God’s love. Sanctuary Choir takes primary responsibility for providing music for 11:00 a.m. worship. Special trips, choir tours, and excursions are planned throughout the year!
