First Presbyterian Church is blessed to have many talented musicians who share their gifts in our rich and diverse music ministry.
Under the direction of Susan Toland, the Praise Team utilizes a range of contemporary instrumentation, vocals and worship songs in leading the 9 am service.
The chancel choir provides music for the 11 am worship service, accompanied by the recently
restored historic Mohler pipe organ. Choir director Monte Ashcraft also directs the Joyful Ringers bell choir which adds a beautiful musical dimension to the worship of the church.
The chancel choir took part in the Festival of Church Music at the Meyerson Symphony Center in November of 2016 along with choirs from twenty-five other churches in North and East Texas. This is the fourth time our choir has participated in this event hosted by the Church Music Institute.
The annual Christmas Cantata features the chancel choir, soloists, and instrumentalists.
