Worship is the primary goal of the music ministry of Vineville Baptist Church. The music ministry offers opportunities for all ages to use their gifts in worship. Our worship is traditional, and incorporates a variety of choral, instrumental and congregational song.
The primary worship leadership groups are the 50 voice Sanctuary Choir and the Vineville Instrumental Ensemble. Accompanying them are two excellent accompanists at the piano and organ.
The Sanctuary Choir consists of volunteers who offer their voices in praise. They rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 pm and welcome any who would choose to join their voices in song. The choir sings a broad variety of music including classics, contemporary anthems, hymn arrangements, spirituals and seasonal music.
The Vineville Instrumental Ensemble is an auditioned group open to high-school aged players and above. Primarily a brass ensemble, the group changes and expands to include other wind and string players when they are available. This ensemble supports the congregational song, accompanies the sanctuary choir and provides additional instrumental music in our services.
Handbells are also part of the musical/worship life of VBC. Currently, 14 ringers ring 5 octaves of bells and 3 octaves of hand chimes. This ensemble periodically rings in worship and enjoys traveling to bell festivals and other ringing opportunities.
