"Those who sing pray twice." (St. Augustine)
The music ministry of Wingate Baptist Church seeks to glorify God by leading people to praise God in song. We believe music is not a performance by only professional musicians, but a means to draw a congregation to praise, prayer, and petition through music.
Opportunities to participate in music include the following:
The Congregation: This is the primary musical group of the church as together we all lift our songs to God.
The Sanctuary Choir: The choir is open to all who wish to serve God through the preparation of anthems and other special special music each Sunday of the year. It meets 7:30-8:30 on Wednesday evenings in the sanctuary.
The Elementary School Choir meets Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:00 in the Elementary School Sunday School room. It works on music to present in worship and leads children to understand how and why we do what we do in our worship services.
Preschool Music Time introduces our youngest children to the joy of music each Sunday morning from 9:30-10:00. It meets in the Preschool Sunday School room.
The Handbell Choir rehearses on Sunday afternoon 5:00-6:00 in the sanctuary and presents music for the congregation periodically during the months of September - May.
