What\'s Happening!

Adult Choir


IBC Choir


The Idlewild Choir, “Emmanuel’s Praise” leads worship for our Sunday Morning worship under the leadership of Rev. Travis Byrd. We sing a variety of musical styles and strive to give God our best in all that we do. We are a family of God and our ministry and rehearsals include a focus on God's Word, prayer, and fellowship, so that our times together are a spiritual refuge and time for growth. We hold missions as the focus as we reach out to touch lives through music both inside and outside the church.



Simply come to our next regular rehearsal in the Education Building on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. in the Choir Room. We will gladly assist you in finding the materials you need. You may begin singing in the Sunday services when you feel comfortable to lead in worship. This is a personal choice and we want you to do what is most comfortable and enjoyable for you. Membership in the choir is open to all followers of Christ who are 16 years old and older. No audition is necessary.



Faithful attendance is encouraged and expected at all rehearsals, worship services, and special events. We all strive for 100%, but there will be circumstances from time to time that will cause you to miss a rehearsal or service. Therefore, 70% ought to be the minimum goal. If you have a special challenge with your schedule, simply share that with the Minister of Music. His heart is to involve as many people all doing their best to serve.



For our Sunday services we wear appropriate Sunday attire (modest dress) or choir robes. No jeans, shorts, t-shirts, or tank tops. For our seasonal events, we wear formal outfits or choir robes. Please refrain from wearing perfumes during rehearsals or presentations.
