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.

The Sanctuary Choir of First Baptist Church, Huntsville serves as part of the worship leadership team for FBC’s 10:30 a.m. Sanctuary Worship Service each Sunday (broadcast live on WHNT-19 television). The choir performs a wide-ranging repertoire and frequently is accompanied by the 45-member FBC Orchestra.

The FBC Sanctuary Choir is honored by two very special invitations for 2013.  In April they had the opportunity to perform with the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra on Beethoven’s “9th Symphony” and Bernstein’s “Chinchester Psalms”. Then, in September the choir will travel to Washington, DC to be featured as the anchor choir for “Labor Day at the National Cathedral”, a weekend choral festival with guest conductor Craig Courtney and members of the National Symphony Orchestra. Come and join us.


Mondays 10:30 a.m. (September - May)  There is a remarkable warmth of fellowship in this group. Opportunities to sing include worship services and various community locations.  Each year a very special project is planned such as dinner theater, a tour or cruise.


FBC Orchestra

Wednesdays 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
The FBC Orchestra is an integral part of First Baptist’s music ministries, serving as regular participants and leaders in worship and providing musical presence and support for many special presentations, including The Living Christmas Tree and the Spring/Easter concerts. Known throughout our city and region for its extraordinary programming of worship and concert repertoire, the FBC Orchestra was honored in 2006 by the invitation to perform a feature concert for the national meeting of the Baptist Church Music Conference and is looking forward to a 2015 appearance at the Celebrating Grace Music and Leadership Conference.  Recent highlights include a workshop with noted composer David Maslanka and featured leadership at the ten year anniversary / memorial concert for 9/11, attended by two thousand and still viewed online. Members of the FBC Orchestra come from all walks of life, representing a unique inter-generational blend of ages and musical backgrounds.  The group gathers each Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. to rehearse music that inspires the soul and enhances the worship of the congregation.


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!
