Our purpose is to use music to give our members a powerful and interactive experience with Christ. The songs we sing and style of music we select are intended to lead people into God’s presence. The Music Ministry serves our church family during special events and funerals in addition to Sunday morning and Wednesday night services.
Voices of Joy (VOJ)
The melodious sounds of our largest adult choir usher us into vibrant praise and worship – singing songs that include gospel, anthems, and Negro spirituals. If your spiritual gift is singing, you are welcome to be a part of the Voices of Joy choir. No auditions are necessary. This group sings at least once a month.
Expressions of Praise (EOP)
A more contemporary choir, Expressions of Praise brings high energy, upbeat songs to the praise and worship experience. If you are 18 or older with the spiritual gift of singing, you are welcome to take part in this choir. The group sings once a month. No audition is required.
Young Warriors for Christ (YWFC)
These are young people who are musically gifted and love to sing as an expression of their Christian faith and devotion. More than just singing, YWFC is a discipleship experience that allows our young people to grow spiritually through committing their time and talents to the Lord. YWFC is open to all OCBF youth between the ages of 13-18 or who are in the 7th-12th grade. This choir sings at least once a month. No audition is required.
