Music is a vital thread that connects the diverse members our congregation to their experience of worship and ministry. First Baptist is a place where the musical arts are celebrated and where gifted musicians can offer the best of their skill and training in worship.
Developing the talents of young musicians is a priority at First Baptist. We have a vibrant graded choir program for our children, which prepares them for Youth Choir and jubilate!, a combined choir of youth from churches all over the Southeast that tours together twice a year.
The Chancel Choir is a committed, talented, and fun group of singer/musicians. Whether preparing a traditional anthem, a major work, or a simple spiritual, their attitude and effort is always the same—prepare well and sing with sincerity.
Yet the greatest musical component at First Baptist is our congregational singing, which is vibrant, strong and supported by our gifted organist, Anne Armstrong. The congregation embraces the broad wealth of traditional and new hymns as found in the Celebrating Grace hymnal, for which our Minister of Music, Stanley Roberts, served on the editorial board.
