1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations.

Here at Harvest Baptist, it is our goal to encourage everyone to “serve the LORD with gladness” on a daily basis and “come before His presence with singing” during our corporate worship times. We encourage all musicians, singers, and audio/visual technicians to use their talents and abilities to lift up the name of Jesus and to also encourage the members of HBC in their walk with Christ. Yes, we strive to be excellent in leading worship but our main goal is to come before our Savior and Lord with thanksgiving in our hearts and praise upon our lips. We are not satisfied with giving God our half-hearted worship.

There are many ways to get involved in the Music Ministry at HBC. We encourage all those that God has gifted in the area of vocal or instrumental music to use their talents and abilities by joining us!  Even if you feel that you can just “make a joyful noise unto the LORD”, we welcome you. God has never asked you to be THE best singer or instrumentalist in order to be used by Him. He has only asked for YOUR best.  Your best is all God requires in order to use you to the fullest!


Worship Choir

Worship Choir helps in leading worship on Sunday mornings during the Fall and Spring semesters. There is no audition and anyone who has a relationship with Jesus Christ is welcome to join. This choir is for ages 13 and up. Worship Choir practices on Sunday Evenings from 6:15 – 7:30pm.


The HBC Orchestra plays for the morning service each Sunday. They also play for the Worship Choir specials and instrumental selections throughout the year. There is not an audition but at least one year of playing experience is usually required. We encourage all those with instrumental skills to use their talents as soon as possible. “Making a joyful noise” will later turn into a beautiful noise unto the LORD if we use the talents to glorify Christ! The Orchestra practices on Sunday Mornings at 8:15am for Sunday morning worship and 6:15 -7:30pm for Worship Choir.

Praise Band

The HBC Praise Band plays for the Sunday Evening services. This band is not open to everyone but there are certain instruments that can be used if you are a more experienced musician. Praise Band practices on Wednesday Evening from 5:45 – 6:25pm.

Student Praise Band

The Student Praise Band plays during the student worship on Wednesday Evenings. They also play for some Sunday services throughout the year. The Associate Pastor of Worship along with the Student Pastor is responsible for adding members to this group. Practice times vary.

Solo Ministry

You may be a part of the Solo Ministry at HBC if you are a member of one of the musical groups at HBC. You will be scheduled to sing once or twice a year and will have plenty of notice before your scheduled date to sing.
