Music Ministry

Sharing Gifts in Music.

Avenue Road Baptist Church blends a variety of worship styles on Sunday mornings; from traditional to contemporary, using a rotating variety of instruments:  Piano, Organ, Guitar, Drums, Flute, Clarinet, Trumpet, Chimes, in addition to choir and vocal soloist accompaniment.  The music reflects a broad accommodation in styles for the diverse groups composing our Church family.  In agreement with our vision at Avenue Road, we recognize some bring musical gifts.  Consider coming on board to share your gifts with us!

"The Bible makes abundantly clear, again and again ... that God uses the most messed-up, flawed, not-good-enough
people to do His will ... , because messed-up, flawed, not-good-enough people are all He has to choose from."
