music and worship

Due to COVID-19 all in-person choir rehearsals and classes have been suspended. Please contact us for opportunities to connect in music and worship.

The worship ministries of First Baptist involve many men, women and children striving to use their God given gifts to bring Christ the glory due His Name. They love the Lord and share that testimony by singing, playing instruments and acting.

Serving in the music ministry is a wonderful way to:

  • Glorify God
  • Grow in Christ and inspire others to do the same
  • Discover abilities and hone skills
  • Develop friendships
  • Participate in God’s work at First Baptist Athens

For more information on the Music and Worship Ministry, please call 256-232-0796 or email



Our Celebration Choir is the primary worship-leading choir. The choir sings most every Sunday morning in both the 8:30 and 11:00am services and plays a key role in special events throughout the year. It is the entry/starting point for most adults desiring to serve in the music ministry. All soloists and smaller vocal groups are derived from the Celebration Choir.

  • Everyone is welcome, 18 years old and up.
  • No prior experience and no audition required.
  • A commitment to faithful participation in rehearsal, weekend services, and special events is expected.

Rehearsal: Wednesdays 6:30-8:00
