Worship is at the core of who we are created to be. When we offer praise to the Lord, we are fulfilling a grand design that helps us better understand why we are here. Each week, we gather together to do just that through music, learning and fellowship.

Rehearsals are scheduled for Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Music Suite. Music folders are available to each choir member during rehearsal. During this time, we prepare Sunday’s music, look at the upcoming choral pieces, fellowship and have a time of devotion. Special events will require extra rehearsals and will be scheduled accordingly.

View worship from a different perspective! Join us each Sunday at 9:15 a.m. as we lead in dynamic worship! Call time on Sunday morning is 8:45 a.m. in the Music Suite.

FAQ

What should I expect?

Worship music at FBC Decatur ranges from traditional hymns to popular praise anthems and usually feature the full Worship Choir and Orchestra. During the summer months, the choir and orchestra take some time off and music is led by piano only or by special ensembles and soloists.

What about my children?

Children’s activities end at 7:00 p.m. which means choir and orchestra members may need childcare assistance. We do offer Choir Care for children in Kindergarten thru 6th grade so that you may stay in rehearsal for the entire time.Childcare is also available for younger children in the preschool area. A reliable adult will stay with the children in a specified room until rehearsal has ended. To sign up for Choir Care or preschool care, contact the Music Ministry Assistant in the church office.

Do I need my own instrument?

Yes, you will need to provide your own instrument for Orchestra participation.
