Barbara is a first grade teacher at Robertsdale Elementary School and actively assists me in the Music Ministry. She is the Orchestra Director as well as one of our keyboardists.
Music and Worship has always been a vital part of Loxley Church. Though the years the styles of music have changed but the importance of the music and singing has not. God has blessed Loxley with very talented and committed people who take the worship ministry very seriously and want to give God there best. As the church expands and grows there is always room for others who want to express their praise and worship playing instruments and singing to Him. Our three objectives for the music at LCoG are:
- to lead or assist the congregation in the worship of God.
- to utilize those with musical talent and skills to their fullest potential to worship God.
- that all this is done with sincere passion to glorify the One Who gave us this beautiful gift called music.
God has blessed LCoG with some wonderful talent, however there is always room for others who wish to join us in lifting Him up with their musical talents and abilities.
If you are interested in serving with the Music Ministry please contact me through email.
God Bless, Mike Middleton

I have been involved in Kids Ministry since I was 12 years old, leading worship and bible teaching. I have always had a passion for Jesus and kids. Loving Jesus and showing that love to kids is what I live to do each and every day. My goal is for each child that comes to Loxley Kids will know how much Jesus truly loves them and that they will know the Word of God as truth. The Loxley Kids staff and I strive to set an energetic atmosphere that is both fun and engaging for the kids.
I am so blessed to serve on the Loxley Church staff alongside such wonderful, Jesus- loving people. If you love Jesus, love kids, and love having a good time doing those things, I’d LOVE to talk to you about how you can get involved with us in Loxley Kids!

Hey Y’all. My name is PaulaAnn Campbell Buettner, but you can call me Paula.:) My parents are Archie and Barbara Campbell. I have two beautiful daughters: Camille and DrewAnn. I want everyone to know how thankful we are that you choose to worship with us. I also want everyone to know of all the opportunities that are available here at Loxley. Most of all, I want to get to know you and how Jesus has influenced your life.
I have been involved in ministry since before birth. Yes, you read that correctly. You see my mom was very active in her church so I was in church even before I was born. I feel that I have the inside scoop here at Loxley because I have served as a volunteer in almost every role available. Each one held a special blessing for me. I want to share my insight with you and help you find just the right group to connect with.
If you have a desire to find people that you can connect with or if you would like to help people connect please email me and I will meet with you and lead you in the right direction.
