Pine Chapel Baptist Church

1544 West Queen Street
Hampton, Virginia


"Speak to one another with psalms,
hymns and spiritual songs.
Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord."
- Ephesians 5:19





There are approximately 770 references to music in the Bible,
and music plays and important and vital role
in the worship of God here at Pine Chapel.
Worship at Pine Chapel is considered blended in style,
meaning we use worship music and hymns of the past
along with Southern Gospel music and contemporary music of the present day.

Pastor Paul Lewis leads the Adult Choir
and schedules the weekly music specials.
Pianist Merry Lewis and Organist Michelle Paxton
accompany the Adult Choir and the congregation during Hymns.

We often have a SingSpiration in place of an evening service,
where members or guests may sing a song,
play an instrument, read a poem, or give a testimony.
This has proven to be a great way to share your musical talent,
to share your love for God, and to be entertained and enlightened
by your fellow Christians.







The Adult Choir is the flagship of our Music Ministry,
and leads our congregation in praise and worship each Sunday.

For anyone interested in joining our choir,
rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7:45 p.m. in the sanctuary.
Auditions are not required to be a part of this choir,
though each member is expected to exhibit Christian character,
and faithful and consistent attendance
is an important part of choir membership.





PCBC Praise Band


The Praise Band, under the direction of Tony and Sandy Dianna and Andrew Myers,
currently features Adam, Allen, Emily, Faith, Jordan, Lauren, Leah, Marissa, Mary and Timi.
Anyone interested in becoming a part of this ministry is welcome.
The Praise Band performs Contemporary Christian music during the Youth-Led Worship Service,
the third Sunday of every month.



Pine Chapel is the home church of the Riverdale Quartet,
and we also have many talented vocalists and musicians
that perform solo or as part of a group.
There are plenty of opportunities for anyone that
has the desire to be part of this ministry.

Even though the piano and the organ
are still our primary worship instruments,
we do use other instruments and instrumental tracks to
accompany our choirs or soloists.

There is no greater blessing in life
than to see people become aware of the
presence of God in their lives as they seek to serve Him
in using their God-given talents through music.

It is exciting to see God use His music as a tool
to communicate His grace, love and salvation.



We routinely make audio Compact Disc (CD) recordings
of the Morning Worship Service and other special events,
and have been doing so since Christmas 2006.
Our (newly created) audio library also includes
recordings of the 2006 Adult and Youth Christmas Musicals,
the 2007 Easter Cantata, and the Youth's "Maundy Thursday" service.
If you would like to borrow a copy of any of these recordings,
request a personal copy of any recorded service
(Love Offering appreciated), or if you would like to request
that a particular service be recorded, please contact
Tony Dianna (pictured), Walter Gay, or Lee Matthews,

In March 2005, In God We Still Trust was performed at a Diamond Rio concert.
They received an immediate standing ovation, and continue to do so every time they perform it!
Sadly, major radio stations wouldn't play it because it was considered politically incorrect.
Consequently, the song was never released to the public.
If this song speaks to your heart, share it with friends and loved ones. Then let us cease being the silent majority and join as Americans!
