The Music Ministries of SMBC exist to accompany and enhance the praise component of our worship service. The choirs include a variety of traditional Gospel, contemporary Gospel, spiritual and hymns in the music chosen. The Mass Choir and several other choirs rehearse and work diligently to provide dynamic music that presents the Gospel in song.

Learned, prophetic, challenging and inspiring sermons come from the pulpit at all times. Christian Education sustains all of our ministries, and our church is family oriented. Therefore, we welcome you to the SMBC family where Jesus is Lord and making disciples motivates our every action!
