Opportunities abound to praise God through music. We have choirs and groups for children, youth, adults, and instrumentalists. Our worship is lead by an able worship team and lively, enthusiastic praise band (which includes a great horn section.) We strive for excellence in all we undertake!
Interested in sharing in this ministry? Contact Pastor Mark for more information - we'd love to have you!
Beyond the singing of the congregation, this is our primary worship group at NHBC. Our repertoire includes everything from sacred standards, formal anthems, Southern Gospel, Contemporary Christian, worship hymns, and choruses. Our "sound" is strong, energetic, and joyful in order to inspire believers to deeper devotion and to encourage the lost to enter into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ!
The choir is under the direction of Pastor Mark Russell and is ably accompanied by Janice Smallwood, our talented pianist, along with our orchestra and band (see below.)
The Celebration Choir is comprised of a faithful and devoted group of singers who count it as a privilege to sing for God's glory. Participation is open to anyone
from their teen years upward with no formal audition required. Rehearsals
are on Wednesdays from
By the way, choir is a great deal of fun and a wonderful opportunity to fellowship with other believers who love music.
Celebration Band and Orchestra
Our orchestra meets for rehearsal each Wednesday
Our PRAISE BAND consists of several highly skilled instrumentalists playing drums, guitars, bass, keyboard, piano, and even a Hammond C-3 organ (it's not your grandma's organ!) This group rehearses with our Celebration Choir and as needed for special events.
With a wide repertoire, from standard hymns and choruses to patriotic to Dixieland and beyond, our Celebration Orchestra and Praise Band also avails itself to ministry opportunities away from NHBC.
The Celebration Orchestra and Praise Band is open to musicians of high school proficiency (and middle school by audition.) Come, join the fun!!
