Music Ministry

First Baptist Church engages individuals in worship, discipleship, outreach and missions through music and other artistic expressions. As we praise the Lord, proclaim the Good News of Jesus, and respond to God’s grace, we seek to become a community motivated by the compassion of Christ, serving in God’s Kingdom! Worship is at the center of how we express our identity and are continually formed to be

God’s people.

The Scriptures compel us...

to “sing praises to God” and to share together the “psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs” of the church. Through music, we unite our spirits and our minds in acts of worship, celebration, thanksgiving, confession, witness, and proclamation. Whether as a member of one of the choirs, worship teams, or instrumental ensembles, or as a part of the congregation, we are all called to “make a joyful sound to the Lord.”

For all ages and abilities!

From preschoolers singing joyous praise to adults lifting their voices in the worshipful hymns and songs of the church, First Baptist Church welcomes all to be active participants!

  • Preschool and children’s music groups (4 years through 5th grade) guide young ones into understandings of God’s love for them, and helps them learn to take their places as engaged worshipers in the church. 
  • The youth worship team (Envision) and Chapel Choir (6th-12th grades) provide rich opportunities for fellowship and music-making, growing in discipleship, serving in ministry and ourtreach settings, as well as worship leadership at FBC.
  • Adults are involved in the FBC Worship Team and Sanctuary Choir. Both groups encourage the worship life of our church each Sunday morning.
  • Instrumental groups include handbell ensembles for youth and adults, and an orchestra that shares in worship on a monthly basis.
  • FBC’s music and drama ministries work together from time to time to prepare and present large-scale dramatic musicals, providing opportunities for actors, singers, dancers, and technically-minded people.
Music Ministry Schedule

Our worshiping congregation is our largest and most important “choir.” As we join our hearts and voices in worship each Sunday, we embody the unity of spirit and purpose to which Christ has called us. There are no auditions or forms. To join the congregational “choir,” all you have to do is join heart, mind and voice or signing with the whole congregation!
