Celebration Worship

Music Ministry

The Pioneer Drive Baptist Church Music Ministry is made up of adults, students, and children of all ages and backgrounds. Our purpose is to glorify God while leading in corporate worship, to worship in spirit and in truth, and to minister to one another and the congregation through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.

We are brought together by a common biblical purpose:

  • To Exalt the name of the Lord together. (Psalm 34:3)
  • To Encourage one another. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
  • To strive for Excellence in everything we do. (Psalm 33:3)
  • To Equip the next generation of worship leaders. (Psalm 145:5)

It is a great privilege to lead the people of God to both serve and experience Jesus Christ in worship.

"...admonishing one another in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." Colossians 3:16

Celebration Choir

The Celebration Choir is comprised of trained and untrained musicians that love the Lord, have a heart to serve, and are committed to using their talents to praise His name each week. This is a great place of encouragement, support, strength, refreshment, musical challenge, and fulfillment as we worship God together. The choir leads every week in both the 9AM and 10:30AM worship services and participates in special presentations throughout the year. During the school year, Wednesday rehearsals are from 7:00-8:30PM in the Choir Suite.

"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." Psalm 150:6

Celebration Orchestra

The Celebration Orchestra is a dedicated group of musicians who serve God and the church by using their gifts and talents in the area of instrumental music. This dynamic group enriches our worship services every Sunday as they lead in both the 9AM and 10:30AM worship services. They also participate in special events and presentations throughout the year. The orchestra rehearses Wednesday evenings during the school year from 6:30-7:30PM in the Choir Suite.

"Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy." Psalm 33:3

High School Choir

The Pioneer Drive Baptist Church High School Choir is a great place where students experience community and fellowship while using their gifts and passions to lead in worship and minister to our community and beyond. The High School Choir is made up of students in grades 9 thru 12 and is led by the Minister of Music. This choir rehearses Sunday afternoons (September – June) from 4:30-5:45PM in the Choir Suite.

"Now therefore, our God, we thank You and praise Your glorious name." 1 Chronicles 29:13

Middle School Choir

At Pioneer Drive Baptist Church, our Middle School Choir helps our students get to know Jesus and grow in Him by looking at His glory and learning how to respond. This choir meets Sunday afternoons (September – May) from 4:30-5:30PM in room 111 and is open to any student grades 6 thru 8. We invite all Middle School students regardless of musical background to come join us as we worship Jesus Christ.

"Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation." Psalm 95:1

Children's Choir

The Children’s Choirs at Pioneer Drive Baptist Church serve a two-fold purpose: teach children about God and His Son Jesus through the words of the songs we sing and provide them with opportunities to lead in worship. Choirs for ages 3 through 5th grade meet from 6-6:45PM each Wednesday during the school year in the Children’s Building. Our desire is for all children to know, love, and follow Christ, and become life-long worshippers.

"I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live." Psalm 146:2
