Music Ministry

Throughout the Bible, people lift up their voices in song to praise God. So at Antioch, Music Ministry is a vital part of our worship.

Led by Pastor Doug Bell, Antioch's Music Ministry is vibrant and varied. While we love those old traditional hymns, we recognize that we serve an infinite God Who still inspires His people to write new songs, and create new arrangements for older ones. The music in our services is a balance of the traditional and the contemporary.

Every few weeks, Pastor Doug introduces us to a new song of praise and worship. We will feature the song here on our Music Ministry page. As you have opportunity, please take the time to listen to the new songs, so that as we sing it together for the first time, we will better honor the One to Whom we sing.

Here is the one we are learning now.

Our Music Ministry Teams include the Adult Choir, the Band, the Children's and Preschool Choirs, and the Technology Team. Each Sunday, the choir and the band lead the music for the worship service. The children's choir perform for occasional services. A Technology Team works every service to ensure that sound and video work properly to support the musicians and speakers.

The Adult Choir sings in most Sunday morning worship services. Rehearsal is every Wednesday at 6:45 PM in the Choir Suite. Throughout the year, the Adult Choir also sings for special events, such as the Living Christmas Tree, which, of course, require additional rehearsals.

The Band performs for most Sunday morning services as well. Band rehearsal is every Wednesday at 6:00 PM in the Sanctuary.

Children's and Preschool Choir practice is every Sunday night at 6:00 PM. These groups do not perform on any schedule, but perform occasionally as they learn new songs.

The Technology Team is responsible for running the soundboard, ensuring the microphones work, and preparing and playing the ProPresenter slides. This team is taking on a larger role as we now live-stream our services. We need more volunteers to serve on this team!

If God is leading you to use your musical or technical talent to serve in the Music Ministry, please call the Church Office at 910-739-9425 and ask for Pastor Doug.
