Sing to the Lord a New Song

This ministry exists to facilitate and encourage great worship and praise of Jesus Christ. We seek to edify people and testify to the truth of the Gospel through creatively presenting musical offerings that reflect the highest level of preparation and divine enablement. Our motto is, "excellence in all things, and all things to the glory of God."

Our worship gatherings include a variety of musical and non-musical expressions, both familiar and new, as we pursue excellence in praising God. At each worship event, one can expect music presented by accomplished players and singers who possess commitment to the arts and dedication to Christ.

God's beautiful gift of music gives our innermost thoughts and feelings expression that otherwise might be impossible. Join us as we sing and play to the "praise of His Glory."

Sanctuary Choir, Hallelujah Choir, and Sanctuary Chamber Singers lead in worship on Sunday mornings and for special FBC events.  These groups sing a remarkable repertoire chosen and prepared to bring glory to Almighty God.  Rehearsals are filled with great music-making, fellowship, and prayer as both the mind AND the heart are engaged in preparations and worship.

Grades 7-12 Led by Micah Walley,  Karen Anderson and Sherry and John Christy.  Student Music and Student Band meet on Sundays from August - May.

Music Friends for Preschool through Kindergarten and First Kids Music for 1st through 6th grade meet each Wednesday afternoon at 5:45 - 6:30 p.m. (August - May).  For more information, please contact Esther Kim, Associate Minister of Music, at or call (256) 428-9423. 

Handbells (Mosaic Ringers), instrumental ensembles (First Baptist Brass; FBC Big Band; Heavy Metal No-Strings-Attached; Woodwind Choir), contemporary praise bands (First Fellowship and Student), and a 60-piece orchestra (FBC Orchestra) are all vibrant parts of the instrumental opportunities at FBC.

Opus 48 concerts, Master Classes, special concerts ranging from bluegrass to Brahms, the Living Christmas Tree, and our annual Cosmic Music & Art Camp are just the beginning of our many special events.  Look here for more information.
