Music Ministry

 
 

Music is a vital part of church life. Our primary purpose is to draw people to God through weekly worship experiences and special musical events throughout the year. We also provide musical training and leadership experiences for everyone, from preschoolers to senior adults.

Sanctuary Choir

The Sanctuary Choir is a non-auditioned group of adults of all ages who rehearse weekly on Wednesdays from 7:30 – 8:30 pm. This choir leads in worship in our 8:30 a.m. service.  In addition, the Sanctuary Choir participates in special Christmas programs and other events throughout the year.

 

Transformed Praise Band
Transformed,” a praise band of instrumentalists and vocalists, was formed in 2001 to provide music for the youth worship service. It has since become the praise band for the church, leading our contemporary music for the 11 a.m. worship service each Sunday. Though the band’s membership has changed over the years, the mission of the group has remained the same: to glorify God, humbly serve Him as ministers of music and lead others into his divine presence.

The band also provides special music in worship and sometimes provides accompaniment for soloists and other choir anthems.  They participate in the annual FBC Festival of Music each Spring, as well as provide music for the Newport News One City Marathon.

Swingin' Singers

The Swingin’ Singers is open to all those who have reached at least 55 years of age, whether or not they attend First Baptist Church. The group meets every Thursday at 10:00 a.m. for refreshments and rehearsal. This group’s greatest ministry is singing in nursing homes, senior adult centers, and convalescent centers throughout Hampton Roads. The Swingin’ Singers also enjoys day trips and extended trips to places like the Amish Country, state historical sites, and seminars.  This group never misses an opportunity to have a fun or holiday party.

Impact Youth Praise Team

Impact, our Youth Praise Band is comprised of teenagers who love the Lord and are very gifted musically. They meet twice a month on Wednesday nights at 7:30 p.m. for rehearsal. They regularly lead music for the youth and also participate in other church events throughout the year.
