Worship Arts Ministry

Worship Arts NEWS
We are busily preparing to worship our Lord and Savior with you each Sunday as well as the special presentations during the year.

The Celebration Choir: Many times we hear how the choir that leads in the 11:00 AM Worship service has helped to set the atmosphere for worship of our Savior, Jesus Christ. The Celebration Choir would love to see you be a part of this dynamic ministry. There are NO auditions and church membership is NOT required. Members range in musical ability and knowledge, but that never gets in the way of the choir’s passion to “Lift Up Jesus Christ!

The Celebration Choir rehearses on Wednesday nights @ 7:15 PM in the music suite. Please consider being a part of the choir family!

The Singing Christmas Tree: Special Monday night bonus re-hearsals take place @ First Baptist Church from 6:00 PM till 7:00 PM in and near the music suite. There are print and audio re-sources available as well as these sectional rehearsals to help anyone sing in this year’s presentation.

Children’s Choir: I want to express my gratitude to Karen DeBay for once again leading the effort to teach music to the children of First Baptist Church. This group meets in the BLUE room on the Children’s Ministry hall, just down from the Food Pantry. They meet weekly on Wednesday’s from 5:00 PM till 5:45 PM before the Awana Ministry for kids starts.

Worship Workshop: Teens to adults can learn BASIC vocal, chording and drumming skills twice during the month of October. Between 5:30 PM and 7:30 PM on Monday, October 8th & Octo-ber 22nd, instructors will teach basic skills for beginner vocalists, keyboardist, guitarist and drummers. Please consider attending these sessions and growing your musical gift for the Lord.

Sound & Projection Training: Various ministries of First Baptist Church will need support from volunteers who are trained in the use of the audio/visual equipment on campus. Therefore, we continually offer training opportunities to anyone who would like to become familiar with the operation of sound and projection equipment and software. Training is short, painless and fun. Many media volunteers attend multiple opportunities to refresh their skills, expand their knowledge or cross train on another skill so that they are available to serve as an audio or projection technician. Please consider attending one or more of these sessions and make yourself available to serve God and His church.

As always, thank you for supporting the Worship Arts ministry. Your participation helps to spread the Gospel to all those who will listen!

His, Tim
