Mid-Morning Worship

This service occurs on Sunday mornings from 10:45-11:45 a.m. in the sanctuary. Our pastor, Dr. Barry Howard, shares the message, and Bob Morrison, associate pastor-music and worship, serves as the worship leader.

The worship choir is our Sanctuary Choir (adults); together with our church orchestra, they faithfully inspire us in our worship of God. These groups use a variety of musical styles, hopefully facilitating everyone’s encounter with God. Most services also feature a solo, an ensemble selection, or a handbell selection.

Congregationally, both hymns and choruses are used. An effort is made to observe the heritage of the great hymns of our faith, as well as inject the newer hymns and choruses that are of a more contemporary nature.

Accompaniment for both our congregational singing and our choral/ensemble selections range from full orchestra to a cappella. First Baptist Church is fortunate to have as supporting instruments a large pipe organ (a Reuter Organ) and grand piano (a 9-foot Steinway Concert Grand). Whatever the instrument, group or style, though, it’s our mission that God be honored and glorified in and through it all.
