MUSIC MINISTRY

"Breathing in His Grace.  Breathing out His praise."

The purpose of music in the church is nothing more than, nothing less than, nothing other than the purpose of the church - which is ministry: ministry to God in worship, ministry to the Body of Christ through nurture and fellowship, and ministry to a lost world through evangelism.

Sanctuary Choir 

Director:  Doug Spires, spires@fbcvicksburg.org

Rehearsals: Wednesdays 6:15 - 7:15 p.m.  

Place: Choir Room (Adjacent to Fellowship Hall)

Through the Sanctuary Choir, members are able to develop not only their love for music, but their love for making music for the Lord. The members of the choir offer their collective musical gifts as a sacrifice of praise as they lead the church family in worship.  The Sanctuary Choir also leads in special services throughout the year.

If you are interested in this ministry, we invite you to visit a rehearsal and find out if this may be a good ministry fit for you.  If you do that, we believe you will find Sanctuary Choir is a ministry that can have a tremendous impact on your life as you grow in your walk with Jesus Christ.  You can contact the Ministry Assistant at flc@fbcvicksburg.org or Associate Pastor of Music, Worship & Communications at spires@fbcvicksburg.org
