Worship and Music

Worship at Highland Baptist Church draws its purpose statement what Jesus described as the greatest commandment. In Matt. 22:36 He is asked the question, “…which is the greatest commandment in the LAW?” In verse 37 His response is a quote Deut. 6:5 “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” It is the privilege and the challenge of our Worship and Music Ministry to lead our church in worship that allows us to worship God with spirit, (our heart), with our intellect, (our mind), to the best of our ability and might, (our soul). To accomplish this we utilize the gifts and talents of our church family to lead our congregation in worship.

Voices In Praise is our Sunday morning worship choir and is open to everyone in our congregation high school age and up. The only requirement for being a part of the Voices of Praise is a willing heart and a commitment to rehearsals on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. There is no audition to be a part of theVoices In Praise but there is an expectation that members will be faithful and committed to rehearsals and singing in worship every Sunday.  No matter if you are an 8:00 AM worshipper or a 10:30 AM worshipper there is a place for you in the Voices In Praise. 


Our group of musicians fulfills their call of worship leadership by playing their praise. P150 is an auditioned group that is opened to all our worshippers, high school age and above.  We rehearse every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday morning at 7:00 a.m. The worship team plays for all morning worship services and periodically in the evening.  They are also involved in special programming with the Voices In Praise.

Our Worship Team is the vocal ensemble that assists in leading worship every Sunday at Highland.  Membership in the Worship Team begins with membership and commitment to the Voices In Praisechoir.  Interested vocalists are auditioned from the choir to be a part of the ensemble.  This group rehearses weekly on Wednesdays before the Voices In Praise and sings in rotation on Sunday mornings and occasionally on Sunday evening. 

At Highland there is a place for you to fulfill your call to ministry in music. Please call the church office if you are interested in becoming a part of the Worship and Music Ministry of Highland Baptist Church.
