Sunday Services at FBC Jacksonville:
- The music part of our worship service is lead by Praise Team. The Praise Team consists of a band driven sound including guitars, drums, piano, and more to accompany our talented vocalists. The music style is predominantly a contemporary style that uses some of the newest songs of worship alongside modern arrangements of some of our most beloved hymns from the past. Occasionally we will change up the style of things and do more simplified services with only the piano or acoustic guitar.
Ways to Serve in the Worship Ministry:
- The FBCJ Praise Team primarily leads the congregational music in our Sunday services. There are minor differences in terms of personnel and instrumentation between the Blended and Modern worship services. The Praise Team includes vocalists, instrumentalists, and the tech team.
- Vocalists: The vocalist come from within our choir and sing up front with our Worship Pastor, Berrik. These vocalists have a great ear for harmonizing and a welcoming stage presence that invites our congregation to sing together.
- Instrumentalists: Also known as "the band," these talented musicians play a variety of instruments including acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, drums, piano, keyboards, and more. We are always looking to add to our team and expand our instrumentation.
- Tech Team: The behind the scenes heroes of the Praise Team are the members of the Tech Team. These people handle the soundboard, computer for song lyrics and media, and lighting. Being a little tech savvy obviously helps, but training is available for anyone wanting to serve.
- Praise Team Vocalists meet at 6:30 PM to work on harmony parts before meeting with the rest of the team.
- Full Praise Team Rehearsal at 7:00 PM on Wednesday Evenings.
Normal/Pre-Covid Opportunities to Serve:
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the following groups are not yet meeting. They will be restarting when we feel it is safe to do so.
- The FBCJ Choir is open to anyone who is interested in making a joyful noise to the Lord. The choir prepares to lead in worship by rehearsing through the upcoming Sunday's congregational music as well as songs specifically arranged for choral performance. The Choir leads with the Praise Team in Night of Praise, our seasonal worship ministry events. Whether you can read music or not, this is a great way to serve at FBCJ through music.
