FBC Choir

Our adult choir leads in worship services and special events throughout the year. Rehearsals are on Wednesday nights, and are open to anyone interested in singing, regardless of experience. No audition is required. Interested? We encourage you to come and visit one of our weekly rehearsals and find out how much fun choir is!

Student Worship Team

A band-driven worship team for student vocalists, drummers, guitar and keyboard players, for 6th grade through 12th grade students. Rehearsals are on Sunday afternoons, and are open to any interested student. The team frequently travels and ministers in other churches.

Hiz Kidz Choir

Part of Hiz Kidz time on Wednesday nights is a choir experience! They perform periodically throughout the year. All interested children are encouraged to join!

FBC Wind Orchestra

A few times per year, we assemble a group of musicians who play band instruments (trumpet, trombone, flute, clarinet, etc.) to play for worship services. Players should have played for 3 years in school or the equivalent. If you'd like to play with us, contact us so we can add you to our list of potential players.

Other Opportunities to Serve:

There are many other opportunities to serve in worship ministry. Since the following ministries require certain skill sets, an interview is usually required:

Sound and Video Techs

Our sound and video techs provide critical support for our congregational worship experiences. Quick learners with servant’s spirits and long attention spans do well in this role. Training is available!

Worship Producer

Worship producers help coordinate and execute technical and production details for worship services. Producing is a big responsibility, but we will train you!

Worship Band

We have a rotation of players who help provide music for weekly worship services. Keyboard, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, piano, bass, and drums are our standard instrument set. A certain level of play and a commitment to attend rehearsals is required.

Worship Vocalists

Hand-selected vocalists help lead worship services.

Vocal or Instrumental solos

We have a number of musicians who provide feature music for worship services throughout the year. By audition only.


We use drama in special events periodically throughout the year. We’re open to new cast members. If you're interested in serving through drama, contact us and let us know, so we can keep you in mind for our next project.

Interested in any of these opportunities? Contact the church office (618) 281-5605.
