Music is an integral part of our worship service and ministry to the community. From the voices of the choir and notes of the organ to the sounds of the guitars and drums, we praise and worship God.

Concert Series

Throughout the year, the Music Ministry at FPC features musicians, vocalists, and choirs from the Tampa Bay area and around the country in special recitals and concerts. Two of the concerts each year have a long-standing tradition in the church. The Festival of Praise invites area church choirs to join our choir and a guest clinician for a 4-day festival ending with a concert in our sanctuary. The Many Moods of Christmas concert raises funds to support the St. Pete Free Clinic.
