Worship Ministry

Worship permeates the life of the church at Calvary Baptist. We are to worship God “in spirit and in truth,” and music is an incredibly powerful vehicle for helping us express our hearts to God… to worship Him “in spirit”. We believe children, from a very young age, can learn to glorify God through music and worship, and that they were created to worship, so we begin very early teaching them to sing and understand how to worship God. Through children’s worship on Wednesday evenings, Sunday morning worship services, youth praise band, adult bands, choirs and praise teams, handbell choirs and various other ensembles and worship events, Calvary’s music program supports the purpose of equipping us all to glorify God through worship.


“Classic” and “Contemporary” 
Worship Bands and Praise Teams
There are two bands that support the Sunday morning worship services at Calvary. 

The band for the “Classic” worship service is made up of keyboardists, orchestral instruments, drums, bass and acoustic guitars and any other capable instrumentalists that God brings us. Some players in this band depend on sheet music while others play by chord charts and lead sheets. 

The band for the “Contemporary” worship services is made up of acoustic guitar, lead electric guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, vocalists and any other instrumentalists who can enhance contemporary worship and play by ear using chord charts. 

Vocally, the “Voice of Praise” Adult Choir supports the “Classic” worship service, and a “praise team” supports the “Contemporary” services. Hearing and singing harmonies by ear (unless you are the female melody singer) is an important skill for the praise team members to possess along with a passionate love for worshipping God through music. 

Interested in knowing more? Call the music office at (956) 686-4364 or call or text Mark Richardson at (956) 874-9085. 

"Voice of Praise” Adult Choir 
“Voice of Praise” is Calvary’s adult choir, which is a vital part of the “Classic” worship service as well as a ministry arm of the church, sharing Christ’s love through music and drama. Rehearsal attendance and a love for praising God through singing are the only requirements to be a part of the choir. As a worship-leading choir our rehearsals focus on spiritual and musical preparation for Sunday worship as well as preparing for special events. All adults are welcome to come. Meet in the Choir Room (6:30-8 pm) any Wednesday.


Media Ministry
If you love technology, then this is the place to serve. We are always looking for people to help with Audio-Visual systems: sound, lighting, worship presentation software, television (filming and editing), as well as special teams during major events. If you are interested in helping in any of these areas, please contact the church office or email mark@calvarymcallen.org and we’ll connect you with the right people.
