Worship Ministry

New Holland Baptist Church is a fellowship that is focused on giving honor and exaltation to God with wholehearted, spirit-filled, sincere worship. We are a congregation of blended worship singing today's newest worship music in a blend with the tried and true gospel songs and hymns of our faith.

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!

Celebration Choir

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 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. in the auditorium. There are many opportunities for musical growth as we utilize a talented group of soloists, duets, trios, and quartets.

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 at 7:15 p.m. in the music suite (upstairs, behind the front of the auditorium) and is coordinated by skilled instrumentalist Johnny Ballard. The orchestra accompanies worship each week. They are also known to be one of the most fun groups of folks around! All volunteer, these folks play out of a love for God and the music that honors Him!

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!!
