Music and Worship Arts Ministry

Music and Worship Arts Ministry


The Music and Worship Arts Ministry serves the church and the larger community outside these walls as God continues to use many committed and dedicated singers and instrumentalists to lead the congregation in praise and worship, and serve the church whenever needed. Our talented musicians seek to discern the flow of the Holy Spirit in each worship service; and try to follow the Spirit’s lead both musically and spiritually in unity and cooperation with our pastor and other worship leaders. Our utmost motivation and desire is to see the congregation enter into God’s presence. Often, our members accompany Pastor Wesley at special outreach services during the year. Membership in all of our ensembles is open at all times during the year and new members are especially welcomed.

Adult and Young Adult Choirs: The Worship and Arts Ministry brings creative arts to ASBC. The ministry offers music, dance and drama in ASBC worship services as well as other services outside the church through many different groups:

The purpose of the Drama Ministry is to glorify and lift up the name of Jesus and allow God to use us to minister to His people. As we convey the Word of God through dramatic presentations, we are planting seeds to help build disciples to win the world for Christ. We minister through imagery, movement, speech, and music to bring to life real and relevant messages from God. For when God speaks, we act!
