Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing.  Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise.  Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.  -Psalm 100:2,4 NKJV

The goal of the music ministry is to worship our Lord and to facilitate and encourage others to do the same.

If you have questions about the music and worship ministries of First Baptist Church, Cary or how you could get involved in one or more of them, please contact Rev. Chris Haire or Mae Langston.
