Way Station Christmas Musical

First Baptist Church Manchester presents the theatrical Christmas musical, “Way Station“ on December 1st, 2nd and 3rd at 6pm nightly.

This musical production is sure to get you in the Christmas spirit. Come see the lights and sounds of Christmas with a full choir talented cast of actors. 

Way Station is the touching story of Mitchell Shuster, who is the somewhat reluctant inheritor of a small family gas station that is, as he says, 

“at the intersection of nowhere and oblivion.“   We will watch Mitchel grow from a 9 year old boy with a new suitcase, to a young man who meets and marries Rita, the love of his life.   Although his suitcase is perpetually packed, he never seems to be able to escape from his struggling business to take a long-planned, always-postpone Christmas trip.  As the decades pass, Mitchell arrives at a destination that is far different than the one he originally sought.

Put it on you calendar now, because it will only be here one weekend.

Performances are December 1st, 2nd and 3rd at 6 PM nightly. 

Admission is free.

First Baptist church is located in Manchester at 1006 Hillsboro Blvd. 37355

Worship and Music Ministry


At the center of all we do in the Worship and Music ministry is our times of worshipping together as a body of believers. 

Our goal is to honor God by using our gifts of music and the arts to express our love and dedication to Him

and to inspire others to do the same.

We have several ways to use our gifts to honor God. Many of them are listed and described below.

The Worship Choir

The Worship Choir leads us in our 11:00 AM blended worship service. Rehearsals are Wednesday nights from 6:00 PM to 7:15 PM in the choir room. This group also presents a variety of presentations at different times throughout the year. 

Some of these presentations include: theatrical musicals at Christmas and/or Easter as well as worship musicals. 

There is always something going on with the worship choir.

There is no audition required, just show up at 6pm on Wednesday in the Choir room. 

Praise Band & praise team

The Praise Team (singers) and the Praise Band lead worship for the Sunday Morning 8:30 AM & 9:45 AM contemporary worship services. 

The Praise Band also plays, along with the pianist and organist, most Sundays in our 11:00 AM blended worship service.

The Praise Team is made up of singers who feel a calling to lead worship and who have a more advanced vocal ability.

The Praise Band is made up of instrumentalists who excel at their instrument and who have a desire to use their gift to lead in worship. 

We meet on Wednesday nights.
