FBC Burnsville offers several ways to worship through music including: the Adult Choir, Adult Handbell Choir, Youth Handbell Choir, Elementary Children’s Choir, Preschool Children’s Choir, and other small musical ensembles.
The Adult Choir is led by music director, Jessica C. May, and sings each Sunday during the 11:00 a.m. worship service. In addition, the First Baptist Church choir can be heard around the community singing to shut-ins, local nursing homes, as well as at the Town Square in Burnsville! The choir rehearses in the choir room on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-8:30 p.m. Anyone is encouraged to join this group, regardless of music-reading skills.
First Baptist is fortunate enough to have not one, but TWO adult handbell choirs. The Adult Handbell Choirs play during the worship service throughout the year. Lisa Mauney leads a handbell ensemble that meets in the sanctuary balcony on Wednesday evenings from 6:45pm – 7:15pm. Lisa’s group enjoys learning more about bell technique and strengthening music reading skills. The other adult handbell ensemble is led by Jessica May and meets in the sanctuary balcony from 7:00-7:30pm each Wednesday evening. New ringers are always welcome to join either group!
The Children’s Choirs (preschool and children) rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-6:00 p.m. in the preschool Sunday school. The Youth Handbell Choir rehearses at the same time in the sanctuary balcony.
We invite you to join us and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Director of Music.
