MUSIC MINISTRY

First Presbyterian Church offers many wonderful opportunities to praise God through music.

The Chancel Choir

organThe Chancel Choir is the main adult choral group at FPC. With a long-standing reputation for excellence, the choir contributes music and assists in leading the traditional worship service year round. In addition to a great number of sacred anthems which represent all the eras of the western church’s musical heritage, the Chancel Choir also regularly presents sacred masterworks and extended works. No audition is required, but a pleasant singing voice and some previous choral experience are helpful. Regular attendance at weekly rehearsals is expected. The choir does not rehearse during the month of July.

For details about our Chancel Choir contact Sam Marley at 770-532-0136, ext. 36 or smarley@fpcga.org.

Morning Light Praise Band

The Morning Light Band is an ensemble of musicians under the direction of our worship leader Sophie Shoults. A wide range of instruments, including the keyboard, drums, guitars, harmonica and more, produce an upbeat, contemporary sound to compliment Morning Light worship singers.

The Primetime Singers

The Primetime Singers is a 40-voice choral group for retired or older adults. They meet each Wednesday morning, mid-August through May. Not only do they sing for occasional worship services, the Primetime singers also serve as traveling ambassadors, performing for many community groups and events. They have hosted several Older Adult Music Festivals and have performed in Charleston, SC and at Montreat for the denomination’s Older Adult Conference.
