But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. (Isaiah 64:8)

The Worship and Arts Ministry is the umbrella for those ministries that lead and participate in all special Sunday services and special services throughout the year. The Worship and Arts Ministry facilitates the logistics and implementation of all Myrtle’s programs that are connected with congregational praise and worship. One of the ministries primary responsibilities is to design, formulate and coordinate the calendar of events for the year.

The Ministry of Worship and Arts works with the Pastor and the Administrative Assistant in the design and execution of every Sunday service and also every thematic or liturgical calendar event/service on Sunday and during the month. The members of the Worship and Arts Ministry are the Chairs/ or representatives from the following ministries: Music Ministry, Media Ministry, Ushers, Greeters, Sunday School, LYFE Ministry, Diaconate, Trustees, Caregivers, Revival, Black History Month, History Ministry, Men’s Ministry, MLK Sunday, HH Lecture Series, Life Together Marriage Ministry, Breast Cancer Awareness, Family and Friends, Vision Sunday, Helping Hands, World Aids and The Pastor’s Ball. The end of the year Cantata is the culmination of the Ministries events. The Worship and Arts Ministry will be the Steering Committee for Myrtle’s 140th Anniversary Celebration.

The Ministry’s focus is to serve the Lord by unifying and encouraging the members to participate in all aspects of the worship experience. The mission of the Worship and Arts Ministry is to collectively worship God and effectively minister in the areas of oral and visual artistry utilizing music, dance, liturgy, and drama. Our goal is to follow the vision of the Pastor, echo the Word of the House, and cultivate the gifts in the Myrtle Baptist Church Family. God has given us the mandate to minister in excellence and render unto the Lord the very best of our bounties.
