First Baptist Church St. Simons Island


The Music Ministry at First Baptist Saint Simons Island provides musical experiences and worship to people of all ages. Our Sunday Services offer two worship services.  The 8:30 worship is our traditional worship consisting of hymns from the Celebrating Grace Hymnal accompanied by piano and organ. The 10:30 worship is more of a blended worship style incorporating contemporary praise and worship choruses and hymns accompanied by piano, organ, bass, and drums.  In addition, we have choral music presented by the Sanctuary Choir at the 10:30 am Worship Service.

Here are some ways you can get involved in our Music Ministry!
