How Colonial Hills Worships
The Worship and Praise Ministry at Colonial Hills offers opportunities of musical participation for ages 3 to 93. We believe that music and praise are vital to the growth of the Christian and is therefore vital to the life of the Church. All of our ensembles, choirs, and soloists sing and perform music that touches the heart and praises our God and Savior. Our goal is “To Make His Praise Glorious!” If you are a musician, or just love to sing, you are invited to come and join one of these groups!
This ministry is responsible for planning, staffing, and the conducting of the two Sunday morning services: The 8:30 AM Classic Service and the 11:00 AM Contemporary Service. Both are held in the beautiful CHBC Worship Center.
