Music

The purpose of the Parkway Baptist Church Music Ministry is to offer musical experiences for preschoolers through senior adults to grow in their relationship to God, to have fellowship with other believers, and to reach unbelievers.

Worship music at Parkway Baptist Church is traditional and inclusive. During the service the congregation sings hymns, as well as contemporary choruses. The choir sings anthems, ranging in style from Bach to contemporary. Soloists and ensembles—both vocal and instrumental — offer a wide range of musical styles. Music is presented as an offering to God as the church family communicates to God and to each other about God’s continuous work in our lives and praises Him for His blessings.
