Worship is at the heart of the Christian faith and we seek to honor God with our voices, instruments, and with our lives. Worshiping God is our response to a God who saves and we joyfully express our thanks for his love and grace in our lives.
Our desire is not to see worship as an event, but a lifestyle. We want to "love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength" and encourage others to join us in celebrating and worshiping Him.
Join us in the song of worship!
Dr. Randy C. Lind
Interim Minister of Music & Worship
If you have a passion for worship and a desire to help lead the church in praise ... then the Worship Choir is for you!

The Worship Orchestra is comprised of adult and student musicians who have a desire to use their instrumental gifts to worship God. Each week the Worship Orchestra accompanies our Worship Choir and the Southern Hills worshiping family in a statement of praise. If you are an instrumentalist we would love to have you join this outstanding group.
Children and music go together and Xtreme Praise is the place for children to learn music and about God's love for them in an exciting way. Our team of Xtreme Praise leaders are enthusiastic about helping your child learn Scripture, learn to use their voice and instruments to worship God. Children also get to develop a sense of working together and enjoy singing and leading in worship at SHBC.
Xtreme Praise meets during the school year on Sunday evening. All children ages 3 though grade 6 are part of Xtreme Praise Worship Ministry.
SHBC has 3 (countem'- 3) handbell groups that are active and use their musical talents to express their worship. The groups are organized around ages groups: adult, youth, and children. Requirements: Adult ringers must be able to read music; youth are not required to read music. Children are not required to read music and this is an excellent way for children to begin their musical journey.
One Hope is an auditioned adult vocal ensemble. Members of One Hope are passionate about worship and sharing Christ as we worship God and encourage others to enter into His presence. All One Hope members are active members of SHBC and the Worship Choir or Orchestra. See Pastor Randy if you are interested in One Hope.
