Worship / Music Ministry

Rockdale Baptist has a dynamic worship ministry. Characterized by classic and contemporary styles of worship, our worship ministry seeks to lead people into the presence of God each week. The worship ministry also seeks to provide avenues for people to develop and use their gifts for the glory of God in the areas of music, drama, visual and performing arts, and media technology. We have opportunities for people of all ages to join the worship ministry.
