FBCR worship & Music

Every week we come together as a community of faith to passionately pursue Jesus through corporate worship, prayer, fellowship, and discipleship around the Word of God. We offer two dynamic worship expressions every Sunday with the same message from one of our pastors. All of our services are designed to be a safe, healing place where people from all walks of life can encounter God and freely express their love for Him. Learn more about the worship ministry at FBCR below.


choir & Orchestra


Celebration Choir leads in our 9:30 Worship Center Service.

This group is made up of volunteers who have a heart to serve, love the Lord, and are committed to using their talents to lift up the name of Jesus in worship and at CAROLS each Christmas.

Choir Rehearsals are Wednesday nights 6:45-8:15pm in Worship East.

Wednesdays are full of energy and excitement as we prepare both spiritually and musically to be our best! Andy often says that Choir & Orchestra is More than Music – We are Family.

If you have a passion for worship and a desire to help lead the church in praise, there is a place for you in the Choir.



The Celebration Orchestra, directed by Kent Tidwell, is a talented group of instrumentalists that share their musical gifts, along with our choir, to lead our church in worship.

Rehearsals are Wednesday nights at 7pm in the Worship Center.

Sundays at 5:00PM in Worship East 

We have one of the best youth music programs around, where students get to use their gifts and talents to glorify God. Student Choir is led by our Worship Pastor, Andy Swanner. The youth music program is a great means for students to connect to others and to God in a very powerful way. This also lets our students get involved in the life of our entire congregation by participating in Sunday morning worship services and special events such as Carols and The Sweet Show. Please contact Andy with any questions about these programs.
