From our earliest recollection of childhood songs
like "Jesus Loves Me" and singing hymns in worship experiences,
we began creating musical memories for our soul. These memories of
"psalms, hymns and spiritual songs" help us through life as we
draw upon the scriptural truths and promises of our Lord. The Music
Ministry of Fredericksburg Baptist Church offers such experiences through
its experiential and educational opportunities.
Why is music so important? So children of all ages
may learn to recognize beauty ... to be close to an Infinite beyond this
world ... to provide something to cling to ... to help others have more
love, more compassion, more gentleness, more goodness – more life. Jesus
came that we might have life, and have it more
abundantly. Through music, we can more fully express and experience the
working of God in our lives.
Music Ministry offers a variety of avenues to enhance and express our faith
through music. Children, youth and adults are invited to participate
through the choral and instrumental groups, as indicated below.
