Music & Worship Ministry
Our Sanctuary Choir & Orchestra lead the 8:30am and 10:50am worship services each Sunday morning.

Follow our calendar so that those special events aren’t missed.
We have choral opportunities for people of all ages. All choirs are open to new members and do not require an audition. Come join us and take advantage of these opportunities to assist leading others in worship!

Our Joy Choir is a traveling senior adult choir that uses music as a ministry to other adults. Our desire is to share the love of Jesus through hymns and gospel songs.

Joy Choir meets Tuesdays from 10:00-11:00am during the fall and spring semesters. An added bonus: we always head to lunch together after our ministry concerts, so come join in the fun & fellowship!
First Baptist Church, San Marcos is a church family comprised of people from all different kinds of backgrounds. We strive to offer a broad range of music styles to represent our diversity in worship. This reflects largely in our instrumentalists. Our worship ensemble rehearses Wednesdays from 6:15-7:15pm in the sanctuary.
Our worship ensemble provides the instrumental accompaniment for weekly worship services and special music events throughout the year. This ensemble is comprised of piano, organ, rhythm section, and wind and string instruments. Because we use a wide variety of music styles in worship, we utilize a variety of instruments to best suit the music we sing. The worship ensemble is an auditioned group; if interested, please contact Scott Davis, Minister of Music & Administration, at email@example.com to setup an audition time.
The media team helps lead worship by maintaining everything behind the scenes. They are dedicated to improving communication from the platform to the audience. This includes audio, projection, lights, videography, photography, and social media. There are also opportunities to serve throughout the week with events and programming outside of Sunday mornings.
