MUSIC. It has the ability to comfort. To teach. To inspire and to glorify God. It is a powerful force, with the potential to have an everlasting effect on every life it touches. For these reasons, we place a high value on the Music Ministry of First Baptist Church. Opportunities for musical expression abound for every age.
CHILDREN'S CHOIR. Through the Children’s Music Ministry children and preschoolers are….
*Learning to worship & praise God *Growing spiritually *Growing musically
*Growing emotionally *Learning that music is really fun
STUDENT CHOIR. We encourage all sixth through twelfth graders to become an active member of the Student Choir. Upon joining this outstanding group of young people, one will find many opportunities of service through music. Some of these include:
*Leadership in worship *Seasonal Musicals *Summer Tours
WORSHIP CHOIR. The Worship Choir is made up of ordinary people from all walks of life…bound together with the high calling to proclaim in song the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to lead the people of First Baptist Church in the celebration of our Risen Lord.
INSTRUMENTAL MINISTRY. The Adult Praise Band and Student Praise Band of FBC accompany the Worship Choir and congregational singing of the church. The groups are open to adults and advanced high-school students. There are opportunities in all sections including brass, woodwinds and strings. The Ladies Handbell Choir is made up of ladies who meet each week in preparation for worship leadership. Please contact the music office for more information.
ENSEMBLES. Smaller vocal ensembles are available through the music ministry for those choir members who desire additional vocal experience. These groups are considered “extra mile” commitments with members being active members of their particular choir. Membership in these groups is by invitation/audition only. Presently there are five vocal ensembles:
*Students *Ladies *Adults (2) *Male Quartet
TECH TEAMS. The audio/visual ministry teams of FBC have the gift of technical craftsmanship and a passion for using technology to enhance the presentation of the Gospel message. There are three teams which are responsible for lighting and sound, PowerPoint presentation and the television ministry.
From humble beginnings in 1892, to today with well over three hundred men, women, boys and girls involved on a weekly basis, God has truly blessed the Music Ministry of First Baptist. Together we proclaim “Soli Deo Gloria!” (to God alone be the glory).
