Music Ministry

Worship

We have three opportunities to worship each week:

The Gathering Sunday's 8:30 a.m. Service
The Gathering service is a full on modern worship time that uses all the latest songs, sights, and sounds of our culture to bring us closer to God who never changes. It's a fun, fast moving, and deeply powerful time of connecting with our Lord and with each other. This is a casual, come as you are, atmosphere that features a great praise team and message of relevance from our senior pastor.

Classic Worship Sunday's 11 a.m. Service
This traditional service is full of power and depth with its roots deeply imbedded in the great hymns and services of generations past. It is led by a fantastic choir, with great pianists, organists, solos, and specials, and presents the same timely message from our senior pastor as the Gathering service.

Evening Worship Sunday's 6 p.m. Service
Sunday evenings are a very casual, creative time where we'll see videos, spend time in prayer, sing, learn fellowship, and grow. You never know what might happen on a Sunday evening, but it is always a joyful time together in the Lord.

Leadership

Sanctuary Choir
There are only a few choirs that can match the power and musicality of the FBC Dothan Sanctuary Choir! Their love for the Lord combined with their tremendous talent provides an anchor in the classic worship hour. But that doesn't mean you have to be a "trained" singer to join! In fact, what it does mean is that you can fit right in quickly and be a part of something special. And to be quite honest, we probably have more fun in this group than should be allowed! For more information or to learn how to participate, contact Tim at 334-792-5117 or by email. Rehearsal Times: 7pm-8pm each Wednesday in the choir room.

The Gathering Team
This team is made of dedicated individuals who seek to serve the Lord in a culturally authentic way. They do that through prayer, practice, and hard work with drums, guitars, keyboards, movies, and all the latest "gadgets" that make our 21st century society unique and high tech. They try to make their team relevant to a younger generation and the results have been a powerful movement of God's Spirit. Joining this team is a process that is carefully laid out to ensure the unity of the Spirit within the group. But you can start by contacting Tim at 334-792-5117 or by email.

Handbell Choir
A fun and challenging group of instruments that lead in the classic worship, evening worship, and perform concerts around the Dothan area. Rehearsals are on Sunday afternoons beginning at 4p.m. For more information, contact Tim at 334-792-5117 or by email.

Children
Making music and singing to God can be a lot of fun! At FBC Dothan, the children's music program creates an environment where kids can learn about God and how to glorify Him through music and the arts. We meet on Wednesday nights at 6:00p.m. to 6:40p.m. throughout the school year. Our choirs include preschool (ages 3-5), kids (grades 1-2, grades 3-4), and preteens (grades 5-6).

Production
This is a team of staff members and dedicated volunteers who help with all of the service's lights, sound, and technical support for different needs of the worship times. For more information on how you can help, contact Tim at 334-792-5117 or by email.

…O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.…
— Psalm 95: 1

Our Vision
    There is nothing that speaks the language of heaven like music! And there is nothing more powerful in the life of any individual or church family than to use that language in authentic worship.

    Here at First Baptist, we have a motto of being a W.E.L.L. church with the "W" standing for worship. It's the very first thing on our list. That's how important this language/conversation is to us as a church family. We realize that as created beings of God, we were designed to bring glory and honor to Him and we take on that task here with great joy!
