Players and Praise Team Singers needed for Band

We need additional instrumentalists and praise team singers for the praise team/band that leads the 10:30am worship service. For more information contact the church office.

Our Music Ministry

First and foremost, we believe that music is worship. All of our music ministries focus on making music that is pleasing to God, and using that music to spread God’s message to others. Everyone is capable of making a joyful noise to the Lord, and all are welcome to participate in our music ministries. More information about Bethpage’s music groups is listed below.

Chancel Choir 

Who: This group is open to all Youth and Adults, regardless of musical experience. If you love to sing praises to the Lord, you are welcome to join us.

What: We sing a variety of music, including traditional and contemporary anthems, hymns, Southern Gospel, Praise and Worship, and more.

When: We rehearse in the sanctuary every Wednesday from 7:00 – 8:00pm. When preparing for special music, such as Christmas cantatas, we sometimes rehearse longer. We also meet in the choir room on Sunday mornings at 10:15am to prepare for the 10:30am worship service.

Other info: This group leads worship most Sundays during the 10:30am service. Every Christmas, we present a cantata or musical. We also present special music during Easter. We accept singers who only want to participate during these holidays.

Praise Team Singers

Who: This group is open to all Youth and Adults, regardless of musical experience. If you love to sing praises to the Lord, you are welcome to join us.

What: We sing exclusively contemporary Praise and Worship music and contemporary arrangements of traditional hymns.

When: Two rehearsal options are available for the Praise Team. One group meets in the sanctuary from 8:00 – 8:30pm on Wednesdays (immediately following Choir rehearsal.) The other group meets in the choir room from 6:30 – 7:15pm on Thursdays. You do not need to come to both rehearsals. The same music is rehearsed at both rehearsal times.

Other info: This group leads worship about once a month during the 10:30am service. We also participate in the special music presented by the Choir during Christmas and Easter.

Praise Band

 Who: This group is open to Youth and Adults who play an instrument. You must be able to read music and have at least one year of experience playing your instrument.

What: We play for all congregational singing during the 10:30am service. This includes traditional hymns, praise choruses, and contemporary Praise and Worship songs.

When: We rehearse in the sanctuary from 6:30 – 7:00pm on Wednesdays and from 9:30 – 10:00am on Sundays. Both rehearsals are required.

Other info: This group plays for the 10:30am worship service every Sunday. We do not usually play for special holiday presentations. We do enjoy a laid-back atmosphere during rehearsals, and perfection is not expected. We only ask for everyone to play to their own best ability.

Children’s Music Opportunities

Who: All children’s music times are open to Preschool and Elementary aged children.

What: We sing a variety of music, including traditional children’s songs, hymns, Praise and Worship songs, and more.

When: Two weekly opportunities for children to experience music are available. We have a short praise time in the sanctuary at 9:15am on Sundays, leading into Sunday School clubs. We also sing during Son Days, which meets in the Fellowship Building from 5:00 – 6:30pm on Sundays during the school year.

Other info: This is not a formal children’s choir. We are just enjoying singing praises to God and learning about why music is used as a form of worship. We occasionally share special music during the 10:30am service. Also, we present a Christmas program on a Sunday evening in December every year.
