Communal worship is a focal point of our gathering together, and music provides ways in which we share our love for God, both through congregational singing and prepared pieces by our choir and instrumentalists. We worship at 11:00AM in our Sanctuary each Sunday morning, as well as in our Chapel at various times throughout the year. We also occasionally have special services outdoors.
Our traditional services are “liturgical-lite,” honoring the beauty and majesty of worshiping God in the Sanctuary and following the Christian year together, but are also family-oriented and relaxed. Our worship music is led by an Interim Music Director, and Baxter Jennings (organist/pianist), along with gifted musicians in our church choir/ensembles and instrumentalists who play everything from keyboard to guitar to ukulele to dulcimer to wind and percussion instruments.

Choirs & Ensembles
First Baptist Church has a Sanctuary choir that meets weekly and sings specially-prepared anthems for church services. Led by Becky Collins, Minister of Music, the choir brings beauty and meaning to each of our worship experiences. Do you sing or want to learn how? We’d love to have you join our choir!
Our music program also seeks out the musically talented for solos and smaller ensembles as well. FBC has a five-octave handbell set, various string instruments, and we are always seeking those who can read music to play our instruments.
Traditional Worship at First Baptist is gifted with not only a Sanctuary choir and an excellent organist/pianist, but we often invite guest instrumentalists to accompany our worship music. You will hear dulcimers, violins, oboes, flutes, guitars, keyboards, percussion instruments, and more in our services – all for the glory of God!
Psalm 150: 3-6
Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with clanging cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
