Through the years, TLBC has been blessed with one of the very best music ministries in the Twin Lakes area. This great ministry includes contemporary praise music, traditional hymns, Southern Gospel music, multiple Choirs, soloists, bands, and concerts.
Many gifted artists have performed in our facilities through the years including Steve Green, Sandi Patty, Crimson Flood Trio, Legacy 5, Rebecca St. James, Carman, Karen Peck & New River, Barbara Fairchild, The Martins, The Talleys, Gold City Quartet, Gabriel’s Call, Huntley Brown, Geraldine and Ricky, The Speer Family, Dennis Swanberg, Larry DeLawder, Geron Davis & Kindred Souls, Tommy Mosley, The Messiah Project Opera from Poland , Dino Kartsonakis, Ernie Haase and Signature Sound. The Twin Lakes Celebration Choir has been privileged to perform with Dino and Cheryl Kartsonakis, Carman, Sandi Patty and Steve Green.
The purpose of the music ministry of Twin Lakes Baptist Church is to utilize every available vocal and instrumental talent to lead, prompt, and involve our church in worship.
The Celebration Choir is foundational to the worship experience of TLBC. It is our desire to see it continue to grow, not only in number but also in spiritual growth and in musical technique. The Celebration Choir performs and aids in the leading of our Sunday morning worship service. We present a Christmas special each year as a Christmas card to Twin Lakes and the surrounding area. Our Christmas special presentations are one of the primary events of the year to reach out to our community with the gospel of Christ. The Celebration Choir is also involved in our Easter and “God & Country” presentations each year.
The Praise Team was developed as a group of singers to enhance the worship leading of the church and allow for greater participation in singing each Sunday. This opportunity allows for an intensive growth and learning process concerning the principles of worship. The members of this group are vitally involved in our Celebration Choir and rehearse with the band on Wednesday evenings.
Like the Praise Team, the Praise Band leads the congregation in worship each Sunday morning. The Praise Band rehearses with the Praise Team each Tuesday evening. Jerry Hopper is the leader of the band.
TLBC owns a complete set of Choir Bells. Sharon Warner leads the Bell Choir and the choir forms periodically to present at special events.
The technical aspect of the music ministry is of vital importance. Several key individuals work together to provide this necessary support for the musicians and choirs. Rich Lager is in charge of Lighting and Video. He is instrumental in creating the atmosphere needed for each part of the service through visual effects. Rich uses his talent in making DVD’s and CD’s of the services each week. He also uploads our services to this website’s Media Center each week.
