Clarksdale Baptist Church
"A church in the heart of downtown, with the whole town on our heart"

 Music Ministry . . .

The Music Ministry at Clarksdale Baptist Church is well-rounded and offers many ways to serve and worship through music.  Our choirs are the perfect place to put your talents to work.  With choir groups whose members range in age from three years old to over 90 years old, you are sure to find a group that fits.  You don't have to be able to read music to join - you will learn as you go.  Even the youngest members begin to learn about harmony and how to sing different parts.  Soloists are encouraged and well nourished here.  We have many members who have great backgrounds in music and who are always happy to share their knowledge and talent.  You just can't beat the thrill of being part of a good musical production, leading in worship, and helping present the Gospel!  Oh, and the fellowship is great!!

Pre-school Choir

3 - 5 Year Olds

Wednesday, 5:30 p.m.

Tiny little singers learning to make a very big sound.  This group begins to teach little ones how to sing together in a group, how to follow the director, how to be brave in front of all those people in the audience!  They are introduced to the music of the Church and they learn many spiritual truths through song.  It's a fun place!

Music Makers

1st - 3rd Grade

Wednesday, 5:30 p.m.

Music Makers begin learning more exciting things about music. They get a hint of what harmony and rhythm are all about and they begin learning more difficult music.  As they perform their music for parents and friends, they are learning to be worship leaders.  Music Makers combine with Young Musicians to present one or two musical programs per year.  These programs include solos and drama and the children get to share a Bible lesson with the whole congregation.  How cool!!

Young Musicians

4th - 6th Grade

Wednesday, 5:30 p.m.

The Young Musicians are a really busy group!  They are learning to sing in parts, how to count the music, more complicated rhythm patterns - so many exciting things!  Solo voices begin to emerge and talent flourishes here.  Bible stories come to life through drama and musicals.  The children begin to understand that sharing God's love through music truly is a special gift.  Young Musicians also get to spend six days in the summer at Gulf Shores Baptist Assembly for the Young Musicians Camp.  At the Camp, they participate in music workshops, Bible study, and lots of beachy recreation - let's go!


7th - 12th Grade

Sunday, 6:00 p.m.

God and I make a Majority!  This fine choir sings full four-part harmony.  They are the choir for the Sunday evening services.  They go on a choir tour each summer.  They combine with the rest of the Youth Group to go on a mission trip each summer.  They lead in worship.  This is truly a busy group!
