There are many opportunities for people to use their musical talents for service at Toccoa First. We offer several different musical ensembles, including a contemporary praise band, a choir, and a handbell choir. We also have a children's choir and a youth band. Individuals and groups are also invited to provide special music during our regular and special services and events. If you love singing or playing an instrument, there's a group for you at Toccoa First.
Our praise brand leads worship for The Alternative, our 8:30 contemporary worship service, on Sunday mornings. They practice every Sunday morning at 7 am in Cheek Hall and sometimes practice on Thursday evenings. If you would like to join our praise band on a regular or rotating basis, please contact the church office so we can get you connected with our praise band leaders.
Our chancel choir provides music at our 11:00 traditional service every Sunday as well as at special services and events. While some people choose to sing with the choir each week, others only participate for special events, like our annual Christmas program. The chancel choir practices on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm in the choir room (upstairs in main building).
Our handbell choir occasionally provides special music at our 11:00 traditional service as well as at special events, like our annual Christmas program. They practice on Mondays at 6:15 pm in the sanctuary. If you are interested in joining, call the church office so we can get you connected with our Handbell Choir leader, Lisa Clay.
Our children's choir provides special music at both the contemporary and traditional services. The children are given the opportunity to sing (and sometimes play bells) for the congregation several times a year. All children are welcome to participate in the children's choir, which practices on Sunday mornings during the Sunday School hour (9:45 am) and Wednesday evenings during the JAM program (6 pm).
If you want to use your musical talents outside of one of our ensembles, there are many opportunities to perform special music for the church on Sunday mornings and at other special services. If you sing or play an instrument and want to learn more about using your talents for the glory of God, contact the church office so we can connect you with our worship chairs.
When we have enough student musicians available, we have a youth band that sometimes provides music for special services throughout the year. When they are preparing for an event, they practice during Stoked Youth on Sunday evenings at 5 pm.
