Music MinistryAt FBC McDonough, we are blessed to have a blended style of music for all of our worship services. We offer our hearts in worship of the Lord by singing the latest praise choruses as well as the great hymns of our faith that have given us our legacy of theology in song.
Our music ministry provides performance opportunities for children through senior adults by offering graded and adult choirs, in addition to our outstanding praise team. We are so thankful for the talent and resources the music ministry is blessed with. The only thing missing is you!
