Music Ministry
Music Minister
 Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.”
Hebrews 13:15 (ESV)
Music is a specific way the Lord calls us to worship Him in the scriptures. The music ministry at First Baptist Durant is lead by our Music Minister, Ken Bartholomew. Along with many others, Ken uses his talents and love of music to lead us in worship every week. In the classic service, we worship with traditional hymns led by Ken. In the refuge service, our praise band leads us in modern worship music.
Celebration Choir
Our classic service features an adult choir, known as the Celebration Choir. Directed by Ken, the choir leads the congregation in blended worship and hymns of praise. The choir rehearses every Wednesday night at 6:00 p.m. to prepare for each Sunday service. In addition, the Celebration Choir prepares special musicals at various times during the year; including participating with other churches of like faith in the Living Christmas Tree, a community-wide Holiday event hosted by our church.
Praise Team
Praise Team rehearsal happens on Tuesday evenings at 5:30 p.m. in the auditorium.  The praise team is made up of vocalist and instrumentalist. If you are musically talented and interested in serving our church with the praise team, then contact Ken.
