Music & Worship
Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
— Psalm 100:2
Our Sunday morning worship services are about connecting individuals with God.
The songs we use to collectively voice our expressions of praise and worship to Him are dynamic and heartfelt. We use both the newest worship songs of our day, as well as the time-honored hymns of our faith. Our music, ranging from the celebratory to the meditative, is led by a worship band and vocal team, while on varied Sundays combines with an energized worship choir or contemporary orchestra.
Music is important to our church family’s life. No matter your age, there is a place for you in the Music Ministry of FBC Allen. From singing in our Worship Choir or vocal ensemble to playing in a contemporary worship orchestra, you can participate in a variety of musical expressions of your love for God.

PRESCHOOL MUSIC & MISSIONS (M & Ms): Wednesdays | 6:00-7:30p | ages 3-Kindergarten
Music and Missions allow preschoolers to sing and play instruments as they learn to worship and praise God through music. They are also introduced to the wonderful world of missions while developing compassion and growing in their knowledge of God’s work throughout the world. Preschool M and Ms, for children ages 3 (by September 1 of the current year) to kindergarten, meet during the school year on the first floor of the Children's Building. For more information, contact Kathy Carpenter.
WAM KIDS (Worship Arts Ministry): Wednesdays | 6:00-6:30p | grades 1-6
Our goal for WAM Kids is to guide children to come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior and become lifelong worshipers of God through worship arts. We do this by equipping kids to offer whatever talents, gifts, and skills they possess back to God as an act of worship. Each week children in grades 1-6 rotate through art, instruments, creative movement, and choir. WAM Kids learn the praise songs that are sung in worship and help lead in worship on Sunday morning several times a year. WAM Kids meet every week during the school year on the second floor of the Children's Building. For more information, contact Kathy Carpenter.
