Music and Worship
Through our choral and instrumental music ministries here at MHBC, we seek to glorify God by leading in congregational worship each Sunday as well as striving for excellence in the use of our gifts to lift up His praise through solos and large and small ensembles (*an ensemble is defined as any group, large or small, of vocal and/or instrumental musicians). Currently our music ministry consists of our Worship Choir, New Generation Choir, Children’s Choirs, Praise team/band, piano, organ, and handbells.
The Worship Choir consists of teens through adults who have a desire to lead in worship by using the gift of singing given to them by God. Membership in the Worship Choir does not require knowledge of music reading or previous choir membership. While constantly striving for excellence, we are simply a large ensemble of Christ-followers seeking to lift Him up through music. We sing every Sunday morning in the 8:15 a.m. and 10:40 a.m. worship services and rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-8:30. The Worship Choir presents yearly Easter and Christmas Cantatas as well. Do you love to sing to the Lord? If so, come and join.
New Generation Choir
The New Generation Choir consists of Senior Adults who love to sing to the Lord and fellowship with one another. They meet on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 a.m. for rehearsals and have a regular outreach ministry to the nursing homes and assisted living facilities here in Danville. If you are a senior adult and want to serve Jesus by letting your light shine bright, come on and join in!
The Children’s Choirs are a bright and vibrant part of our music and worship ministry at MHBC. Children from preschool to sixth grade can join the choir. They rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 until 7:15 and present one or two special programs per year! Children’s choir not only raises up choir members but is a great outreach and discipleship tool for our teachers. If your child is not currently in the children’s choir please consider joining.
Praise Team and Band
The Praise Team and Band consists of vocal and instrumental musicians who along with the Worship Choir lead our congregation in worshiping the King of Kings! Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. Praise team members need to be able to sing parts and play their instrument at a high level of proficiency. We ARE NOT about “performing” but are about bringing an EXCELLENT offering to our Lord. Therefore, if you desire to participate in the Praise team or band and lift our Lord, please contact Marshall Key, Worship and Discipleship Pastor.
Piano and Organ
Our pianists and organists here at MHBC serve the Lord through their giftings each week during rehearsals and Sunday worship. God has blessed us with excellent musicians in these positions. If you desire to serve Jesus in this way, please contact the Worship and Discipleship Pastor.
The Handbell Choir at MHBC consists of adult musicians who read music and have a desire to ring for the Lord! They rehearse on Sunday evenings at 5:00 pm. Our handbell choir has a strong tradition of excellence and serves by playing in Sunday morning services and other special events throughout the year. If you would like to join please contact the Worship and Discipleship Pastor.
