"Let the word of Christ dwell in your richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God." (Colossians 3:16)

Choral Scholar Ministry
The Music Ministry of FBC, Weaverville offers one choral scholarship per academic year for a student enrolled in a degree program at an area college or university. The Choral Scholar sings in the Adult Choir, rehearsing each Wednesday night and singing in worship on Sunday mornings as well as in special services. This program allows student musicians the opportunity to participate in the ministry of the local church and to experience up-close the planning, preparation and performance of a variety of sacred music. Students are invited to be involved in other phases of music ministry such as handbells and children’s choir and other ministries of the church such as Bible study, outreach, missions, and more.
