Our Music Ministry is active, vital, and essential to our total church mission. Music is a means to glorify God in worship and to proclaim the good news about Jesus Christ.

Worship is what we bring to God. We strive to bring our best, and to enable others to bring their best. We do not limit ourselves to any particular style of musical expression, but embrace a wide variety, acknowledging that the musical language of worship varies with individuals. Choral masterworks and anthems, current contemporary songs, traditional hymnody, praise and worship choruses, Anglican chant, American folksong and newly composed selections are commonly found in any hour of worship at First Baptist Church. You are eagerly invited to share in our musical adoration of Jesus Christ.

Chancel Bells

With a wide range of experience levels, this is a fun and intriguing group that ministers effectively when it performs, and receives the treasured benefits of fellowship and challenge in rehearsal. Your participation in this ensemble is enthusiastically welcomed! A basic ability to read music is necessary.Tim Bounds directs nine members of a handbell choir.
