The Music Ministry of First Baptist Church is committed to the use of the creative arts to glorify our Creator God.

Opportunities are provided for people of all ages to bring praise to God and lead others in worship. This diverse and comprehensive ministry includes choirs beginning at age three through adult, as well as instrumental involvement using handbells and orchestral instruments. The church is blessed with the use of a Steinway piano and Wicks pipe organ to anchor the singing of the largest choir, the congregation.

Children’s Music Ministry

Children’s music is an important part of the music ministry of First Baptist. Children in preschool through 6th grade have the opportunity for musical experiences each week.

Preschoolers have an active music time on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m. as they participate in Music Friends. Music Friends is followed by Mission Friends each week from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.  Together, these two groups make up CAM3 Jr.

Children in kindergarten through sixth grade have choir/music as part of their CAM3 – Children Active in Music, Missions, and Ministry – rotations on Wednesdays. There are three groups of CAM3 teams, each one rotating throughout the evening with their team members and designated CAM3 adult “shepherds.” The music rotation is included for all three teams every week of the school year. All three groups participate in worship leading throughout the year, sing in the annual Hanging of the Green service, and are included in the CAM3 Christmas program and CAM3 year-end celebration. Other rotations may include: Bible basics, mission study/active missions, art, percussion, Handchimes/bells, derby cars, and more. All CAM3 teams gather together each week for a time of devotional study, scripture memory, and prayer.

CAM3 rotations begin at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays and conclude at 7:00.

The CAM3 teams are:

  • Celebration (Kindergarten and lower elementary grades)
  • Jubilation (Middle elementary grades)
  • Exaltation (5th and 6th grades)

CAM3 is a collaborative effort of the Music Ministry and Children’s Ministry of First Baptist.
