Rhythm Section

“The trumpeters and singers joined in unison, as with one voice, to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, they raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: ‘He is good; his love endures forever.’” 2 Chronicles 5:13

 

Instrumental Worship Ministry

Our Instrumental Worship Ministry exists to glorify God through the musical support of our corporate worship by utilizing the unique giftedness of those He has called to serve in this ministry. Our purpose is also to develop these gifts by offering a graded approach, allowing for many engagement points into this ministry. Finally, it is also imperative that we discover, cultivate, and empower leaders who influence others for the Kingdom of God.

Rhythm SectionSunday Morning ScheduleRhythm Ministry Description

–By Audition Only–

Whether you are an old 80’s hair-band rocker, an up and coming independent garage band member or just have gotten really good at the RockBand video game, we have a place for you in the worship ministry. We rotate guitarists, bassists and drummers into the weekly and monthly Sunday rotation. We rehearse either on Sunday nights or Wednesday nights, depending on the schedule on PlanningCenterOnline. Because of the great commitment to this ministry, we do require an audition to be a part of this team and church membership is required. We need someone who is comfortable both reading music and reading chord charts.

 If you have a heart and passion to help lead God’s people in worship through the gifts and talents He has given you, we’d love for you to be a part of the Rhythm Section. If you are interested in auditioning, please contact Emily Klophaus by emily.klophaus@fbca.org or at (817) 276-6462.

Please attend the rehearsals for the Sunday mornings that you are scheduled for. You can find the dates and times for these rehearsals in PlanningCenterOnline.
