I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.
Psalm 69:30, NIV

Our Music Ministry

There are more than 500 accounts in the Bible of songs, instruments, psalms, music, and musicians. Forty-four of the sixty-six books of the Bible contain actual hymns and songs. Music plays a very important role in the life of the Church. Church Music provides opportunities for worship, praise, prayer, evangelism, and fellowship. The Music Ministry here at College Street seeks to provide these opportunities through a variety of music and styles. Our goal is to always give Glory and Honor to our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST.

Special Patriotic Services Combined Choirs
Sunday, June 30, 2013

On Sunday, June 30, we began the July 4th week by celebrating our nationís birthday with several very special worship times. The first was at College Street during our morning worship service. Our Adult Choir lead us in several selections from a new patriotic musical entitled Indivisible, along with some other very special selections and songs from our orchestra. Then we celebrated as a community of believers at Utica Baptist Church. Our Adult Choir joined in with Uticaís for two presentations of the entire musical. Thanks to all who participated in these wonderful patriotic and worshipful services!

Wonderful Celebration for Ray and Vanessa Conway
25 Years of Service in the Music Ministry of CSBC

Click each thumbnail above for larger picture.

A journey that began way back in January 1981 with a small interruption along the way, continued on Sunday, August 15, 2010 with a packed house, special music, heartfelt speakers, tears, laughter, smiles and hugs and one great catered meal.

Ray and Vanessa Conway are in fact two of the very best and we are grateful and fortunate to call them ours and for them to call us home. God bless Ray and Vanessa and thanks to each of you for the thousands of ways you have impacted this church, this community and all our hearts.

Many thanks to Mike Thrift and the steering committee for this celebration. Enough cannot be said, but praise the Lord for your vision, your diligence and your tireless efforts. Each part of the celebration was just an extension of a very successful ministry as College Street celebrated Ray and Vanessa's many years of service to our church and to the Lord!
