Music

Every participant in the music ministry is a servant leader. Our mission and purpose is to honor Christ through music with passion, excellence, and commitment as we serve the members of our congregation – leading them in worship, refining our skills, and educating our children. We have a place for you at any age, whether you’re a singer or instrumentalist!

Choral Music

  • Sanctuary Choir

  • First Joy Senior Adult Choir

    The First Joy Senior Adult Choir is an active and truly joy-filled group. This choir prepares music to sing once a month in our Traditional Worship service and also for monthly "sing-outs" in the community. These sing-outs are a key function of First Joy's ministry as they present joyful and inspiring concerts in local Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Homes in the area. First Joy also frequently takes their ministry beyond Tallahassee as they travel together on mission trips every year or two.
