Music is an important part of our worship. With vocals, instruments, and drama, we strive to worship, praise and glorify our Lord. Adults, teens, and children serve in a variety of music ministries--including choir, orchestra, band, vocal groups and solos, children's musicals, kindergarten bells, Christmas & Easter music/drama presentations, and instrumental numbers. Our sincere desire is to worship our great God, lift up Jesus, and reach others with the gospel through music. If God has gifted you with a talent for music, we want to give you the opportunity to use it for His glory.
Our vision for local service is to reach out into all of our community. These ministries reach “inside” and “outside” the walls of the church. We have hospital ministries, nursing home ministries, door to door visitation, grief share ministries, a food pantry, teen service days, and care callers. A highlight of our calendar is the annual First Responders Appreciation Luncheon we organize. Our goal is to meet the needs of individuals as well as inspire a growing and thriving relationship with Jesus! We want to establish lasting relationships with God and each other, to give encouragement, accountability, support, and edification.
We also have a tremendous vision to reach into all the world. You won’t be around long until you realize that missions is one of the passions of Overland Park Baptist. All of our staff and members have a love and heart for fulfilling the great commission that Christ left us with. At OPBT we support 141 foreign and 37 home missionary families and projects on a monthly basis. That is a total of 178 mission projects every month! Throughout the year we are visited by these missionaries who share their heart and update us on what God is doing in their locales. The ministries of Overland Park Baptist literally reach all over the world. We invite you to come and catch a glimpse of our heart for missions.
