The Youth Choir Ministry
The Student Choir Ministry is for every student in grades 7–12. The goal of the Student Choir Ministry is to raise up students with a heart for passionate worship! The Student Choir also participates in mission opportunities where students learn that worship is more than singing! Passionate worship honors God in all aspects of our lives! If you want to be involved in a life-changing ministry that impacts our community, state, nation and world, then check us out! The Student Choir meets at 4:00 p.m. each Sunday in the Choir Room.
As music ministry goes, there is always something more challenging or unique that you wish you had time to teach and perform. Well, we are creating that opportunity! First Voice, an auditioned group of 12 singers, will have the opportunity to rehearse and perform more challenging music that is beyond the time limitations of weekly choir rehearsal. So, if you read music, sing and are interested in performing in a mixed ensemble, we would love to meet you.
Children’s Music and Worship
Lifelong worship begins as a child. Our Children’s Music & Worship Ministry strives to build a future generation of worshippers. We have a place for your child to experience the joy of praising the Lord.
Music and Praise Track
To worship is the most important practice in a Christian's life, and it is important for us to begin to equip the next generation with songs that not only teach doctrinal truths but also serve as tools for worship. We use this track to teach songs that allow your child to worship in a style and way that kids worship.
Music Theory Track
We believe that part of our responsibility is to not only help children fall in love with music, but to also teach them the fundamentals of music. This track offers everything from note-reading to exploring various musical styles.
There is an age-graded choir for children 3 years old to 6th grade, each specifically designed to the child’s developmental level. Each choir meets every Sunday at 4:45 PM in the Children’s Education building. There will be special performances, times of worship, moments of laughter and lots of music and movement. We hope to see your child this year!
The Singing Christmas Tree
The Singing Christmas Tree is a production that is designed in a Broadway style format. If you love to sing, dance and act then this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. The tree will unite the full scope of our music ministry in a seasonal performance.
Performing Arts Centre of Acadiana
For years Acadiana has experienced a history rich in musical heritage, and for over 100 years First Baptist has been a a part of that heritage. Now, we at the Performing Arts Centre of Acadiana, a part of First Baptist, wish to help train future generations to continue that heritage through private and group study in various orchestra instruments, as well as piano and voice.
