Music & Worship

Sing to Him a new song

The Music Ministry of First Baptist Church seeks to glorify God in Christ, communicating the Gospel in vibrant and creative fashion. Providing music groups for every age, the Music Ministry involves hundreds of persons in educational and service activities on a weekly basis. We place great emphasis upon the worship of God and upon the wonderful responsibilities of leading and equipping persons to be actively involved in that important act.

CONTEMPORARY MUSIC & WORSHIP

First Fellowship is one of the two worship services of First Baptist Huntsville. It is a more relaxed, upbeat, casual worship experience.

We understand that people connect and interact on many different levels. We understand that sometimes people need a place to worship that is a little less formal. A place where they can have the freedom to be casual, relaxed, and unreserved. Through First Fellowship, we aim to connect people to God and to each other in a real, fresh, and modern way. This is why we use a full band for music, video & media, lights, candles, and anything else that might help us accomplish our task. We want to create a worship experience environment that is both inviting and engaging. What does that look like? Well, we invite you to join us on Sunday morning at 8:15 in the Life Center to find out. Come early to grab some coffee and a doughnut. Find your seat and maybe meet some new friends. We look forward to seeing you Sunday Morning in First Fellowship!
