The Kingdom grows each time beautiful worship is offered to God, each time a child learns the story of salvation from a Sunday school teacher, each time a small group welcomes a new member.

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. We want to see the Kingdom grow.

The Chancel Choir is an integral part of the worship experience, leading the congregation in song 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! REHEARSAL TIMES: TBD


The Contemporary Worship Band leads the congregation in modern praise and worship songs and choruses.  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.

REHEARSAL TIMES: Tuesday evenings @ 6pm
