Welcome to the FBC – Bastrop Music Department! We are so pleased that you are visiting our site, and we hope to meet you in person at one of our upcoming worship services. In the Gospel of John, we read the following:

 

“But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.”
(John 4:23, KJV)

 

This verse encapsulates the goal of our entire music ministry. We constantly strive to create an atmosphere where Biblically correct, authentic worship is encouraged and welcomed. This is accomplished through the offering of a wide variety of ensembles, musical styles, and sound/media opportunities.  No matter your musical background, at FBC – Bastrop you will find many ways to both share your gifts with others and glorify our Lord.   

 

If you are interested in participating in any of our music ministries, or if you would like more information about our programs, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would LOVE to speak with you and discuss how we can get you connected with our church!

 

In Christ,

Brad
 

Current Music Ensembles

Celebration Choir

This ensemble regularly provides music for our Sunday morning worship services.  In addition to this responsibility, the Celebration Choir also presents an Easter Cantata, a Christmas Cantata, and other special music as opportunities arise. Rehearsals occur on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00pm in the music room. This ensemble meets throughout the entire year, and no audition is required. 

Youth Choir

This ensemble, which is open to all junior high and high school students, usually provides music for our Sunday morning worship services once a month. Rehearsals occur on Sunday afternoons from 4:30pm to 5:30pm in the music room. The Youth Choir meets throughout the school year, and no audition is required. 

Handbell Choir

This 3-4 octave handbell ensemble usually provides music for our Sunday morning worship services once a month.  Rehearsals occur on Sunday afternoons from 3:00pm to 4:00pm. No audition is required, but it is certainly advantageous to have some experience reading music.  The Handbell Choir meets throughout the school year.

Worship Teams

FBC – Bastrop maintains several worship teams that help provide and lead music for every Sunday of the year. Our worship teams rotate on a monthly basis, meaning that one team will provide music for all of the Sundays of a given month, etc. Usually, each praise team has the opportunity to help lead worship at least twice a year, and sometimes more.

Worship Band

Currently, our worship band helps lead music during most Sunday morning services. We are always on the lookout for instrumentalists that are ready and willing to use their talents in the service of our Lord.  So, please contact Brad Nix if you have an interest in joining this ensemble.

Smaller Vocal Groups

In addition to the larger groups described above, we also maintain several smaller groups, such as a men’s gospel quartet and a woman’s trio. These folks provide special music for our Sunday morning services usually once every two months.

Individual Solo Music

From time to time, we love including solo singers or instrumentalists during our morning worship services.  If you are gifted in these areas, and would like to provide music for us in this way, please speak with Brad Nix.
