"Let everything that has breath praise the Lord." - Psalm 150:6
Welcome to the wonderful world of music!
God has put a song in our heart, it is the sweet, sweet song of salvation. Even in a dissonant world, God has put a joyful melody on our lips and enriched this melody with heavenly harmonies.

Praise and Worship Choir
The Praise and Worship Choir is the backbone of our worship ministries. These men and women are the primary worship leaders each week in our services. They have been set apart to lift the name of Jesus in music and usher in the presence of the Holy Spirit as He visits our services.
The Praise and Worship Choir rehearses on Wednesdays at 7:00 P.M., in the Choir Room. This choir is for adults over the age of 18.
Praise and Worship Orchestra
The Praise and Worship Orchestra follows the Old Testament example of "...praising Him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and the lyre, praise Him with the tambourine and dancing, praise Him with the string and the flute..." The orchestra program is for advanced High School and adult players. Instrumental music greatly enhances our worship as the orchestra accompanies all hymns and choruses, plays on all choir specials and provides instrumental music for preludes and offertories.
The orchestra has played at the Hamilton Place Mall, for the Trunk-or-Treat Nights, in October, and was featured with a 200 voice community choir in the first annual "Hearts in Harmony" concert in February 2005.
The orchestra meets for practice on Wednesday nights at 5:45 P.M., in the main sanctuary. Membership is based on an interview with the Worship & Administrative Pastor.
Rehearses on Wednesdays at 7:00 P.M.,in Children's Chapel. Children's Choir is for children grades K-6.
The Technical Ministry manages technical needs for all of our in-house services as well as our productions away from the church campus. You can be a part of this team as a volunteer. For more information, contact Technical Ministries Chairman Jack Garner or Music and Administration Pastor,Terry Chitwood.
The Drama Ministry of CVBC is still young but has played a major role in several productions including, "The Gospel According to Scrooge" and "The Promise: The Life of Christ". Drama has also been used to enhance worship services by the use of vignettes and selected readings.
The Praise and Worship Ministries of CVBC exist to lead people in exalting the name of Jesus Christ in worship, both corporate and individually:
- To involve all who will make themselves available in demonstrating God's love through service.
- To show Christ's love for all men by reaching out to those around us.
- To promote an awareness of the needs of our people y providing fellowship in the Body of Christ.
- And by using whatever means necessary to help people become more like Jesus.
Minister of Music: Rev. Terry L. Chitwood
