"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His presence with singing."

-Psalm 100:1-2

 

We have a vibrant and active music ministry at First Baptist Church of Sparks.  We love to worship the Lord in song and in fellowship with one another!  Among our many musical groups, we have special musical Sundays throughout the year.  These include our Bluegrass Sundays, Christmas Cantata, Easter Cantata, Patriotic Holiday services, and Revival Services.  Our goal is to make worshiping the Lord an uplifting, fun, and powerful experience every time we get together.  We offer many different music programs at the church, including:

 

Church Choir

The church choir is comprised of around 40 members.  It is an SATB choir that likes to sing hymn arrangements, southern gospel songs, and spirituals.  The choir sings for both Sunday morning services about once a month and puts on special cantata programs for Christmas and Easter services.  This group loves singing praises and has a lot of fun doing so.  If you have any interest in joining the church choir, please contact Leanna Costell.  We would love to have you!

Praise Team

The praise team helps in leading the contemporary worship services every Sunday morning, and assists with our special "Bluegrass Sunday" worship services on occasion.  The band is made up of singers, guitar players, drummers, piano players, and other instrumentalists that enjoy playing for the Lord.  It is a very upbeat group that is welcoming and enjoys fellowship.  We are always looking for more musicians to come join the team and add to the worship experience!  If you would like to inquire about joining the praise team, please contact Jane Smith.
