Music Ministry
instruments


The music ministry at FBCN exists to provide opportunities for spiritual growth through music in worship services, and to provide music training for all age groups. A strong emphasis is placed upon the importance of traditional hymns and contemporary praise services. In our services, we attempt to blend both of these worthy forms of worship. Our various choirs and ensembles are described in more detail in the following paragraphs.
