Music

The Music Ministry of First Baptist Church offers an opportunity for every child, young person and adult to serve God and His church with the talent he has been given.  Membership in one of our ensembles affords the individual an opportunity to lead in worship services, to study the fundamentals of music, to learn more about choral singing, and to share a witness both inside and outside the church walls.  You are invited to become involved in the Music Ministry and to use your talents in God’s service!
