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 Records First CD Project

The Crimson Gospel is a music collection that was created by the team over at Brentwood Benson Music in Nashville, Tennessee. FBC Manchester presented it as a live concert on April 15, 2018 with the full band, orchestra, choir and soloist. We wanted to be able to offer a recording of the singers at FBC performing these songs, so we pre-recorded the Worship Choir and soloist in order to make them available the night of the concert.

CD's are now on sale in the church book store.

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. 

The Praise Team singers rehearse is at 5:30 PM. The combined Band and Singers rehearse together at 7:15 PM

These are auditioned groups.
