At Eastern Shore Baptist Church, we seek to worship God in spirit and in truth. Ultimately, worship is the way we live each day to bring glory to God. Worship is so much more than just music, but we believe music and the arts are incredible gifts from the Lord to be used in our worship. Our worship includes biblical preaching, music, prayer, testimonies, baptism, the Lord’s Supper. 

We use choirs, soloists and praise band. We would love for you to plug in to serve in our ministry. Check out the list below for options in how you might get involved with the Music Ministry.
