CONTEMPORARY WORSHIP MUSIC COMMUNITY
The Contemporary Worship Band is an integral part of the Contemporary Service worship experience, leading the congregation in modern praise and worship songs and choruses as well as providing special music for worship events. The FPC Worship Band is comprised primarily of a rhythm section (keyboards, bass, drums, guitars) and additional instrumentation from time to time, as well as vocalists who serve on a rotating schedule. Most of our members are involved in other ministries of the church as well, yet come together to exalt the Lord, our God, and offer Him the glory He deserves! Contact Valena Hoyif you are interested in more info.
The Chancel Choir is an integral part of the worship experience, leading the congregation in song (hymns and responses) and offering anthems. The group is comprised of about 30 singers from very different backgrounds. The section leaders are professional singers, whereas the volunteer singers have varied musical backgrounds. Some have had formal vocal or other musical training; others learn their parts by rote. New members are always welcome. Just come to rehearsal!
Instrumentalists are also an important part of worship throughout the year. If you play an instrument, contact Valena Hoy to find out how you can get involved.
The Cherub Choir is our music program designed especially for 3 and 4 year olds. Learn more here.
As Jesus served, so we serve; our church, our city, and our world. Every act of service can be eternal. Every act of service can build the Kingdom of God on earth. Come and join in the work.
WELCOME DESK ON SUNDAY MORNINGS
If you are interested in being part of the team that welcomes folks on Sunday morning, directs them to classes and worship, takes payment for bookstore purchases and generally acts as host or hostess to the many people in our building for worship, this could be the perfect volunteer position for you.

If you love to meet and greet new people and old friends, the Hospitality Team is the perfect place to put your friendly disposition to work! We are looking for greeters to take short shifts at welcoming folks on Sunday mornings and for ushers to assist in getting them settled into their seats for worship at both the traditional and the contemporary services. If you are interested in serving in this way, contact Valena Hoy.
This is a great volunteer position for someone who has recently joined the church or someone who has worshiped at FPC for many years. This team takes care of many hospitality opportunities related to visitors going through the process of becoming members. If you want to know more, email Valena Hoy.
