Music Ministry

Music MinistryThere is a long tradition of musical excellence at University Baptist church. We recognize that sacred music is neither an optional extra nor merely spiritual entertainment within the worship of the church. It is an essential part of worship and, therefore, must have integrity and quality appropriate for its prophetic (bringing the Word of God to the congregation) and priestly (bringing the congregation’s words of praise to God) roles.

Sanctuary Choir

Our Sanctuary Choir strives to offer its very best to the glory of God.  Past performances have included settings of the Gloria by Vivaldi, Rutter and Poulenc, Requiem by Faure and Rutter, and Messiah by Handel.  Rehearsals are Wednesday nights, 7:00-8:30 pm, Room 205.

We have a multi-generational Summer Choir each year during the summer months for youth and adults. This is a great time to check out the choir when your schedule may be more flexible. Of course, we hope you’ll love it so much you’ll become a regular member in the fall! Rehearsals are Wednesday nights, 6:30 – 8:00 pm, Room 205.
