OUR MUSIC






At First Baptist Church of Clay Center, KS, we believe that music is an important element in worshipping our Lord.  We also believe that it should be a unifying agent in congregational life.

While many churches make the choice to have TRADITIONAL and/or CONTEMPORARY services.
We have made the choice to include both traditional and contemporary musical elements in worship.
This enables us to remain ONE BODY of believers UNITED in our WORSHIP.

With this goal in mind, we utilize congregational hymns, praise songs and choruses, the FBCCC Choir, vocal and instrumental soloists.  We also use piano, organ, guitar (occasionally) and recorded accompaniment to provide a variety of styles to encourage all members and attendants to find something musically that helps lead them in worship.

We thank our many instrumentalists and vocalists, 
as well as the dedicated members of our Music Committee.
