WORSHIP Ministry

The heart of First Baptist Worship Ministry is to give every person an opportunity to experience God through worship and music. We know that our church is full of people who love to sing, play an instrument, and lead others in worship. Whether you love singing in a choir, playing in the orchestra, or playing in a modern worship band, we have a place for you. There are areas to serve on all of our campuses, across all of our ministries, and in our weekend worship services.

Please fill out the following form if you are interested in serving our Choir, Orchestra, or one of our Worship teams, or if you have any questions give us a call at (940) 723-2764.
