Music is a vital part of the worship experience at FPC.
The Music Department at First Presbyterian Church supports and enhances the weekly and special worship services of the congregation through the presentation of traditional sacred music.
Seth Fuller, organist, opens the worship service each week with an organ prelude.
We often feature other instrumentalists to supplement our worship in music. In the past, we have had brass choirs, mallet percussion, and instrumental soloists of all types. Many of the brass arrangements were written especially for First Presbyterian by one of our members, Dale Bloodworth.
The Chancel Choir, for high school students and adults, meets on Wednesday evenings for rehearsal and sings during the 11:00 a.m. worship service, as well as during other special services during the year.
In June of each year, the Chancel Choir presents it's annual Summer Concert. This program has become a community favorite. The concert offers traditional sacred music, spirituals, instrumental music, and maybe even a little Barry Manilow.
The Sanctuary Choir invites members of all ages, including youth, to join and participate. Auditions and musical knowledge are not required. Only a desire to sing quality choral music is needed. The staff and the other musicians are as courteous and helpful as they are talented. The Chancel Choir is under the direction of Robert Lamborne.
Do you enjoy music, and making music, but don't really like to sing? We have a place for you! The First Presbyterian Church is seeking persons interested in contributing musically and spiritually to the worship services through participation in a handchime choir. The handchimes perform several times each year during the 11:00 worship service.
