Music Ministry

It is our hope in FPC’s Music Ministry that everything we do will enhance our worship experience with our Lord. We sing hymns, songs, and anthems, and use all types of instruments. We believe it is an unspeakable privilege to be used as an instrument of God, an unparalleled experience to combine voice or musical talent, no matter how great or small, with others to give adoration to God. Our music program involves all ages. The choirs described here are open to all without an audition. Come join the SONG!

Adult Choir

The Sanctuary Choir, open to adults of all ages, college-age and high school students, is made up of men and women who love the Lord, each other and music. We sing every Sunday morning throughout the year and take on various musical styles, most of which take the form of anthems, both traditional and contemporary. Once in a while, we sing a capella, but usually, we’re accompanied by organ or piano with other musical instruments—strings, brass or woodwinds. Three times a year there is a full orchestra accompaniment. 

We are not a group of professional singers, however, we’ve been told that when we sing our voices blend in beautiful harmonies that enhance the worship experience.

We rehearse on Wednesdays at 7:00pm and on Sundays between Sunday school and the Worship Service in the Chapel, Level Five.

Instrumental Groups

Our instrumental groups compliment the organ and piano and help create a depth of sound that deepens the worship experience in exalting our Lord.

The following groups play once a month:

  • The FPC Brass
    This group includes trumpet, French horn, trombone, euphonium, and tuba.
  • The FPC Strings
    This group includes violins, viola, and cello.

The Crossing Band is a group of musicians who play at our contemporary evening worship service, The Crossing. This service is held the second Sunday of each month at 5:30pm in our Friendship Hall.
