Music is an integral part of our worship services at First Baptist St. Charles. The Bible tells us that when we offer our lives to God for His purpose, we are actually participating in an act of worship (Romans 12:1). Consequently, when we join together to worship, it is simply a culmination of practicing a lifestyle of worship. Music for our 8:45am service is led by choir and orchestra, while the music for the 11:00am service is band led.
The Music Ministry at First Baptist St. Charles offers many opportunities to participate, including choirs, vocal and instrumental ensembles, bands, and drama. If you have a heart for music, you will find opportunities for vocalists and musicians of all ages.
