Music and Worship

sweetwater baptist music and worship ministry

Dear Friends,

I want to thank you for your interest in the music ministry at Sweetwater Baptist Church. We exist to bring glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by utilizing the talents, gifts, and abilities that our Creator has blessed us with. I want you to know that there is a place for you in the music ministry of Sweetwater Baptist Church. It is my prayer that God will lead you to that very place of service where you can use all that He has given you to glorify His name!

All of our group rehearsals are open, so feel free to come and visit any of our rehearsals. We’d be glad to have you! I pray that you will consider being a part of one of the groups found within the music ministry of Sweetwater. While you do not have to be a member of Sweetwater to join any of the groups, we encourage you to be faithful in your attendance at the local church that you do attend.

May God continue to use the music ministry of Sweetwater Baptist Church to lift up the name of Jesus through music! May we fix our eyes on the author and finisher of our faith as we gather together in His name to worship Him! If you have any questions about any of the groups within the Sweetwater music ministry, please don’t hesitate to call me at the church office at (803)474-5009!

Blessings in Christ,

Associational Senior Adult Choir

The Associational Senior Adult Choir meets on Wednesday afternoons at 1:00PM. This group is open to any and all retirees/senior adults who like to sing. No audition is required for this choir, however, the prior experience in singing in a choir is always a plus! This group is open to the community and does not require you to be a member of Sweetwater Baptist Church. This choir sings at various assisted living locations around the area and seeks to minister to those who might be forgotten.
