Adult Music Ensembles
The Music Ministry of First Baptist Church is a large, inter-generational program devoted to equipping disciples to use their musical talents and interests to serve the church and the Kingdom of God. Music is a vehicle through which persons of all ages may find opportunities for worship, education, fellowship, and service. In short, music is an "instrument" through which we are able to experience each of these in the body of Christ.
A commitment to Jesus Christ calls each one of us to a life of service and fellowship with God and one another. We believe one way this call can be lived out is through our music ministry. Through singing and playing in our various musical ensembles, we share a testimony of faith in Christ and worship Him all at the same time. Whatever your gift, we want to find a way for you to serve and grow in your relationship with the Lord while leading others to worship and follow Christ.
