Music and Worship

Burkemont Baptist Church has a rich heritage of music and musical ensembles.  From large choirs for adults, students and children, to instrumental groups and our full scale musical productions with drama, there is something for everyone in the music and worship ministry.

Below, you will find information about many of the opportunities there are at Burkemont to serve in the Music and Worship Ministry.  For more information, please contact Pastor Kevin Uhrich or Sheila Hope.

Adult Choir

The Adult Choir at Burkemont Baptist welcomes you!  If you love Jesus and love to sing, we'd love for you to join us!  We rehearse every Wednesday night at 7p.m. in the Choir Suite located directly behind the Sanctuary.  We end rehearsal at 8p.m.  The Adult Choir is open to all adults, ages 16 and up.  Each week, we rehearse songs for worship as well as prepare for special events, such as our Christmas Pageant and Easter Pageant and/or  Spring Musical Event. 

You may ask, "When is a good time to join"? 

The answer:  NOW is great time to join!  We'll see you Wednesday.


The Burkemont Orchestra is a talented group of instrumentalists that play weekly for our three morning worship services.  They also accompany the Adult Choir for many of the choir anthems.  The Burkemont Orchestra also plays for the Morganton Passion Play. 

The Orchestra is open to all instrumentalists who have at least finished their first semester of 7th grade band.  We have adults and youth as part of our orchestra.  So if you play an instrument, come and join us.  We rehearse every Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. in the Choir Suite.

If you have questions about the Orchestra please contact Pastor Kevin.
