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!

First Joy also frequently takes their ministry beyond Tallahassee as they travel together on mission trips every year or two.
