Our Adult Choir sings each Sunday morning in the 8:45 Blended service. We rehearse each Wednesday evening from 6:15 – 7:15 and we are always looking for new choir members!
A part of our Wednesday night activities for children, August through May, includes children’s choirs (3 year-old – 5 grade). The children are divided by age into choirs and have lots of fun singing and learning music through various games and activities. They also help lead in worship at various times.
Our student choirs (grades 6 – 12) rehearse on Sunday evenings from September through May at 6 p.m. and lead in worship on various occasions. The highlight of our year is always our annual choir mission tour each summer.
Starting September 11 at 11 a.m. in the adult choir room. Sign up by clicking the ‘I want to join’ tab.
Our mission choir is made of adults from First Baptist and other local churches who go to various nursing homes, retirement centers, and senior centers to sing and uplift the spirits of the residents. Our current time to meet to rehearse as well as to go and minister is on Monday mornings, September through May.
Our First Baptist Church Orchestra helps to lead in worship during our 8:45 Blended service once a month (September – June) and for special events throughout the year. There are a variety of instruments ranging from brass and woodwinds to percussion and strings. The group rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 7:45 pm. If you play an instrument, we’d love to have you!
