Music Ministries

Worship Through Music

Music is a vital part of worship, and for many of us using our musical gifts for God’s glory is the primary way we worship.

Chancel Choir

Our 40-voice Chancel Choir is led by Director of Music, Jeremy Roberts. The choir is made up of volunteers who find joy in praising God through music and helping to lead our worship and is augmented by professional section leaders.

The choir rehearses on Wednesdays in the Choir Room from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. They sing for most Sunday services from September through early June as well as Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and other special services. The Chancel Choir sings a varied repertoire, spanning from renaissance to 20th-century music, spirituals, and contemporary compositions. No audition is required.

New this Fall we will introduce our First Notes group. First Notes will be a choral group for our 8:45 am Chapel service. This group will not have a weekday rehearsal, but will meet on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 8:00 am to learn a special piece of music for that day’s 8:45 am service.

Youth Choir

Youth Choir is for students in 6th through 12 grade and is directed by Jeremy Roberts. They typically meet in the Choir Room on Sundays from 4:15-5:15 directly before youth dinner and youth group. On the second Sunday of the month, we will be meeting for lunch and rehearsal directly after worship at 12:15.

The Youth Choir sings in Sunday morning worship a number of times throughout the year. They also help plan and sing at special events and services throughout the year.

Children’s Choirs

There are now three choirs for children at FPCA. Choristers, for children in 3rd – 5th grade, is led by Jeremy Roberts. Cherub Choir, for children K – 2nd grade, is led by Kim Thomas. New this fall we have Preschool Singers! Preschool Singers will meet with Jeremy Roberts each Sunday Morning on the Godly Play hall for a time of singing and musical fun. This group may sing in worship periodically as they are able. 

Both Choristers and Cherub Choirs meet on Wednesday evenings from September through early May. Kids can be dropped off anywhere between 5:15-5:50 for dinner in the fellowship hall.

At 6:00 we move to rehearsals where we learn about faith, worship, and music all while having fun. Kids will learn the ins and outs of our worship, how to read the hymnal, and become literate in music. We often use our collection of drums and rhythm instruments, chimes and bells, and Orff instruments. The kid’s choirs sing in worship on the 2nd Sunday of the month.

Bell Choir

The Bell Choir is open to adults and both middle and high school youth and will be directed by Garrett Scholberg. The group will ring in worship about once a month. If you play an instrument or would like to ring bells, contact Jeremy Roberts at

Instruments of the Church
The fine tradition of music at FPCA is supported by superb musical instruments. FPCA’s sanctuary is home to the 2014 Holtkamp Organ and a custom rebuilt 9’ Baldwin grand piano.
