Music & Choir
FPC’s Music Ministry exists primarily to fulfill the part of our purpose statement that says, "to Glorify God and enjoy him forever." Beyond that, we also Grow in Christ-likeness through learning to sing truths that are essential to our faith, Give ourselves in ministry through our singing, and Go forth in mission into the local community and abroad through concerts, television and other venues. At all times, we joyfully lift our voices to the Lord! For more information or to become involved contact email@example.com or
