Music Ministry

Scripture tells us to sing praise to the Lord. At FBC, our musical praise spans a variety of styles. We seek to engage the many individuals who seek to worship God through their talents.

Adults

Sanctuary Choir (college age and up) rehearses each Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. in the Choir Room. This choir sings weekly for the Celebration Service at 9:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary and also for two major presentations each year, one during Advent/Christmas and one during Lent/Easter. No audition is required; join by attending Wednesday night rehearsals.

Orchestra (auditioned instrumental ensemble) meets select Sundays, August through May, in the Sanctuary. Both youth and adults are invited to be a part of this ensemble. They accompany hymn singing at the 9:00 a.m. Celebration Service, play with the Sanctuary Choir, and provide additional music for worship.

Handbell Choir (college age and up). This group plays in worship throughout the year and for special programs. Music reading skills are strongly recommended.

Ukulele Ensemble (any age) practices at noon each Thursday in the Instrumental Ensemble Room (2nd floor). This group has both beginners and experienced players alike that come together to play a variety of secular music and old hymns.  This group travels around the Griffin area to play at local venues throughout the year. No audition is required and it is a great way to learn the ukulele or have fun playing with others!

Our praise band rehearses on Sunday morning and leads in Connexion worship each week.
