Worship Ministry Purpose
Our goal in the Worship Ministry is to produce an environment of worship that pleases the heart of God, inviting His presence to be embraced by the congregation.
Our desire is to provide spiritually inspiring and emotionally uplifting praise and worship that consistently points people to God. We want to provide worship that helps change lives. To worship “in spirit and truth” (John 4:24).
Come join the celebration of our risen Lord as the adult worship choir presents an Easter musical through song, drama, and multimedia!
We will present this musical on Saturday, March 26th at 6:30pm, and Sunday, March 27th at 10:30am. Come and help us proclaim that He is risen indeed!
This is the presentation by Mountain View Baptist Church's Worship Choir and Orchestra of our Easter Cantata - Remember: Where the Past Ends and Forever Begins.

Worship choir is completing final preparations for sharing the Easter musical. Set your calendars for Saturday and Sunday, March 28th (6:30 PM) and 29th (10:30 AM) to worship along with us for this “kick-off” to Holy Week event. The musical will include orchestra prelude, narration, and dramatic monologues. Come out and invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers. “Remember: Where the Past Ends and Forever Begins”
The haunting words reach to us from antiquity.
"The Lord Jesus, on the night He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, 'This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.' In the same way, after supper He took the cup, saying, 'This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of Me.' For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes." - I Corinthians 11:23-26.
Remember. Remember. As commanded, the Israelites have retold the story of the faithfulness of their God for centuries. They have recounted how the blood of the lamb protected them from the angel of death. The world is on the brink of eternal change now, because it is Jesus, the Christ who is saying remember. Remember the things I taught you, remember the trials and the triumphs, remember the promises and the prayers, remember the bread and the wine. God will reclaim His people and it will be forever inscribed on their hearts, sealed by the Master, in His own blood. Remember. Once you encounter the Master, how could you ever forget?
Saturday and Sunday, December 20th and 21st, the worship choir shared the Christmas musical, Majesty of Heaven. The musical was a unique blend of traditional Christmas carols (Joy to the World & First Noel with a twist) and contemporary songs (Mary, Did you Know? & Miracle of Christmas) as well as providing a broad-based set of musical styles from classical (Majesty and Glory of Your Name), southern gospel (Fear Not), and black gospel (Tell It!). There was something for everyone to connect and worship along with. Preceding the musical, a small orchestra shared three numbers culminating in an offertory piece done by brass quintet (O Holy Night). In retrospect, the music and narration was a beautifully crafted retelling of the events that first Christmas. Our Father in Heaven bridged the chasm between His Majesty and our humanity when He sent His only Son, the MAJESTY OF HEAVEN!
On Sunday, September 28th the worship choir combined with weekly worship team to provide praise and worship with added orchestral accompaniment under the direction of our new choir director, Richard Nissen. Both he and wife Denise have been involved with choirs and praise teams under former director, Leon Shelton. Richard has also supported multiple productions as an assistant director and with participation as a member of different orchestras (trombonist) and drama. He’s excited to lead the choir ministry moving forward in 2014 filling some very big shoes after Leon’s departure. Plans are well underway for both Christmas and Easter musicals, monthly worship, and outreach opportunities. There’s room for you in choir!
On Saturday, July 26th, Mountain View said goodbye to Leon and Marsha Shelton. Leon has been involved in directing MVBC's choir, orchestra, and worship teams. Prior to that, he served at Washington Heights for many years. We had a good time of food, fellowship, and saying farewell to a couple that has blessed us greatly. We will miss you both!
