SeraphSong: The Singing Women of South Carolina will be in concert at 5 p.m. Saturday, April 21, in the First Baptist Church sanctuary, 300 S. Market St.
SeraphSong members present the ministry of Christ through music. The purpose is to glorify God by providing choral experiences of excellence that encourage worship, provide leadership training and offer fellowship among women in ministry in South Carolina Baptist churches, according to organizers.
SeraphSong: The Singing Women of South Carolina debuted at the Woman’s Missionary Union annual meeting in 2005. With the help of Jim Gill and some female church musicians, the group was formed to provide choral experiences of excellence that encourage worship, provide leadership training and offer fellowship and prayer support among women in ministry in South Carolina Baptist churches.
The group has shared in ministry in various venues, including churches, prisons, nursing homes and community events. This choral group for female church musicians will be accepting new members for the 2011-2012 season. This ministry is sponsored by the South Carolina Baptist Convention Worship & Music Office.
Concerts are scheduled several times a year in churches and other venues. Love offerings received at church concerts are used to fund mission endeavors. Previous projects include contributions to Goodman Correctional Institution, Camille Griffin Graham Correctional Institution, Martha Franks Baptist Retirement Center and the Bethea Baptist Ministries.
