Adult Music Ministry

Handbells | 6 – 6:45 pm
The Adult Handbell Choir is an ensemble of energetic and focused adults who love to ring handbells! The handbell choir will ring in worship every first Sunday of the month combining with the FBC brass ensemble on communion Sundays. (Brass players, let us know who you are!) 

Sanctuary Choir | 7 – 8:15 pm | Sanctuary
The Sanctuary Choir is the anchor of music ministry at First Baptist Church and is open to all adults. College students are especially welcome! This group sings a wide variety of choral music as they lead regularly in Sunday worship services. Special seasons of the church year afford opportunities to present larger choral works.

Youth & Children Music Ministry


As part of Sunday Evenings at FBC, Youth will gather from 5:00-5:45 pm to meet in small groups and explore their arts discipline. Groups will stay with the same discipline all 5 weeks, and on the 6th week, lead in worship. Youth can choose from the following art disciplines:

Dance | Do you like to dance? In this group, you’ll get those steps in by dancing to songs that will be sure to keep you moving! Find a friend and make this group your home!

Art | Do you like painting? Drawing? Design? This group will be a super-creative space to make art for worship. So, grab your favorite brush and sign up for this group!

Drama | Do you like to be dramatic? Do you like to be silly? Do you want to be on stage? Join this group and make ‘em laugh, make ‘em cry, and bring the house down with your stellar stage presence!

Audio/Visual | Do you like to work behind the scenes? Want to be the one who makes the magic happen? Join the A/V team and learn how to work the sound and video systems we use for worship.

Drums | Do you like to make noise? Do you like to move? Then this group is for you. Join the drumming group to play different drums, learn different rhythms, and play along with some songs you’ll love.
