Worship is the highest privilege of the believer. 

We were created to bring honor and glory to God. Worship is more than thinking and singing about Him, it is using our time, talents, and interests to share with others the love of God. Join us as we reach UP to God through worship!

Colossians 3:16
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.


If you’ve ever sung in a 70-voice choir, you get it.  You know how exciting that is! But if you’ve never sung in a choir that large, or in a choir at all, you’re missing out!  Come join us for a super-short commitment Choir that is forming for 2 weeks in August.  

Though sponsored by the Worship Ministry of First Baptist Matthews, we’re deliberately calling this a Community Choir because we’re inviting people from all over the South Charlotte community to help us create this temporary mass choir.  This one-day choir is not about our church.  This is about creating a way to bring people together around a love for God and a shared passion for praising Him with music.  

The Details:
We’ll only have three rehearsals.  You are strongly encouraged to make all 3, but you can still sing if you have to miss one of those.  Two out of three is required.
Rehearsal #1  -  Wed, 7/31, 6:30-8:00p
Rehearsal #2  -  Sun, 8/4, 5:00-7:00p
Rehearsal #3  -  Wed, 8/7, 6:30-8:00p

All rehearsals will be in the Music Suite of First Baptist Matthews, 2nd Floor, Ed. Bldg.

Two Songs:  Because time will be limited, we’ll only learn 2 songs,..but they’re going to be amazing!  Practice CDs will be provided at the first rehearsal.

One Performance:  Well, technically, “two performances in one morning.”   We’ll sing in both the 9:00 & 10:30 services.

You don’t have to be able to read music, but do have to be able to “match pitch” (if you are unsure, email us for more info. and we can help)
