Praise and Worship

At CGBC, the goal of the worship team is to:

  • Exalt God
  • Accompany God’s people as we worship together in song
  • Respond to God for all He is and for all He has done for us
  • Edify one another as we testify to God’s goodness
  • Deliver God’s Truth through corporate worship
We sing both traditional and contemporary worship songs, and we pray you’ll carry the lyrics and the message with you throughout the week until we are united once more!  He is worthy of all our praise!
“Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His Name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.” Psalm 100:1-5


Cedar Grove Baptist Church Student Ministry’s goal is to make life-long followers of Christ who are striving in their daily walk to follow Him and influence others! We strive at Cedar Grove Baptist Church to reach each student through a variety of activities and opportunities to serve others! Our students learn and grow in their relationship with each other and the Lord in various opportunities of worship, learning, fun and accountability.  We offer a variety of times our students are able to grow together such as Sunday morning Sunday School groups, Wednesday night youth group time, worship opportunities in our community  and fun filled times of fellowship!
Students gather each Sunday morning at 9:45 a.m. in the Youth Room Area to spend a little time in fellowship before we break into specific age groups in order to connect to God’s word and learn how to apply God’s word to our lives!  Growing closer to Him and closer together!

Each Wednesday night our students gather together at 6:30 for fun filled activities and laughter before we split into specific age groups of middle school and high school.

We are passionate at Cedar Grove Baptist Church Student Ministry in guiding our students to become faithful followers of Christ who are equipped to share the Gospel with other students their own age! Come and join us!!
