With the talent Hagood is blessed with we try to have a music selection by way of Solo, Duet,
or small group every Sunday. This is in addition to our Adult Choir special selection.
Joyful Praise (Ladies Ensemble)
Joyful Praise was formed back in 1994 as a vision of former member Kathleen Cliver. At that
time six women made up the group in three parts. Now, after four years four of the six
original members return and add three additional voices. Donna Turner, Teresa Britt, Julia
Dickinson, Sonya Brown, Marcia Baxter, Angela Gantt, and Cathy Still make of the
Ensemble. They will be singing periodically in our worship.
From time to time Hagood has hosted concerts from local singers to big name artist. This
began in 1993 when Scott brought the nationally known and dove award winning group
"Truth" to Barnwell. The concert brought hundreds from across the state and many from
Georgia. Also having done concerts have been Cornerstone, The Harvesters, The Ruppes,
John Rutland, Stephen Rutland, and Don Sanders. In 2002 Hagood brought dove award
nominee, Janet Paschal. In 2003, Tony Ellenburg (song writer for Stephen Curtis Chapman and
Amy Grant) came to Hagood. One of the biggest endeavors was our 2003 Homecoming Music
Event featuring over 25 musicians that reunited to usher in Hagood's 50th birthday. This
event began at 6:00pm and twenty-eight songs and 3 hours later we all knew that this event
would go down in Hagood history as one of the grandest music events.
Media appears on our music page because the Music committee joined director Scott Brown
in giving birth to this concept and vision to see it implemented. This ministry is not a new
idea but a new era for our church. The desire to make the worship experience better
through sound, video, lighting, and media. This will include dual screen projections for our
worshippers to see, better home and shut-in ministry videos, and improved sound. The
media concept is designed also to move all technical workers to one location area. Pray for
us as we move in the direction of making these changes that will result in a better
Thanks for your years as volunteer ... and now a part of our team
