Serving in Worship Arts

Worship is not music – it’s a lifestyle. It is our desire that the music at FBCG directs each person’s heart to worship our great God. Incorporating a variety of musical styles and artistic expressions, from traditional to contemporary.

There are many options for serving in Worship Arts from singing, to playing an instrument, to running the slides. If you are gifted in any of these areas please consider contacting Angie Thomas , 630.232.7068×134, about serving. You may also check out some of our options to serve in worship below:
