Music

The music ministry of FBC Ahoskie engages everyone! From congregational singing to choirs for every age, everyone is involved in some aspect of the music ministry.

The music of our Sunday morning worship services covers a wide range of musical styles—from traditional hymns accompanied by the pipe organ and grand piano to contemporary songs accompanied by guitar and/or percussion, choral music, instrumental music, and so much more.

Sanctuary Choir

The Sanctuary Choir is our primary worship leadership choir. They sing a variety of sacred music styles and enjoy preparing music for specific seasonal services during Advent, Christmas, Holy Week, and Easter. Membership is open to all adults and high school students. Rehearsals are on Wednesdays from 7:00-8:00 pm.

Vocal Ensemble

The Vocal Ensemble is group of auditioned adults and high school singers who provide worship leadership once or twice a month and for special services throughout the Christian Year. Their repertoire consists of a variety of musical styles. Rehearsals are on Wednesdays from 8:00-9:00 pm.

Chairo

Chairo is an intergenerational music ensemble which learns contemporary praise & worship music as well as sacred multi-cultural/world music.  Chairo sings for worship every six to eight weeks. Membership is open to all adults and students beginning with grade 6. They rehearse on Sundays from 5:00 – 6:00 pm.  (Chairo is a transliteration of the Greek word for Rejoice!)

Children’s Choirs

We offer children’s choirs for two age groups: Music Friends for age 3 through kindergarten and Children Choristers for grades 1-6. Rehearsals include learning anthems to sing for worship, learning hymns of our faith, music education, fun songs and activities, playing of Orff instruments, and ringing choir chimes and handbells. Our Children’s Choir Ministry and Missions Education Ministry are integrated each week. The children’s choirs meet each Wednesday from 5:00 – 6:00 pm from September through early May.
