MUSIC MINISTRY AT BRADDOCK STREET
The Braddock Street United Methodist Church music program is a ministry that encompasses all ages. Music is the tool we use to teach the stories of Jesus, to encourage prayer and meditation, as well as enjoy fellowship to support a community of faith. Our Minister of Music is George Amos.
The 8:45 AM and 11:15 AM Traditional Worship Services are led by choral ensembles, singing all genres of music with the newly installed Letourneau Pipe Organ. Our Organist is Bill Baber. The 10 AM Contemporary Worship Service is dedicated to a more contemporary style of music, led by the Braddock Street Praise Band, along with the spoken word. Braddock Street hosts several other passionate and talented groups that perform periodically throughout the year, including a Children’s Choir, the Joyful Ringers and Youth Bel Canto.
