Music Ministry

Music gives expression to our worship, instruction for our discipleship, and enjoyment to our senses. It helps us serve our neighbors near and far as God has charged us. Faithful participation is essential in meeting that charge, and there are many opportunities to enjoy and share your musical gifts. You are invited to join others in finding a place to serve God faithfully through the medium of music at First Baptist.  For more information, contact Susan Ward, Music Associate, at (910) 692-8750.
