Worship & Music

There are hymns and songs that we sing ABOUT God, there are hymns and songs we sing TO God, and there are songs we sing to one another as we Sing Our Faith IN God.  

How many ways are there to experience worship through music in song at FBC Cochran?


We start with the largest choir in our church....the congregation.

On Sunday morning there are two opportunities to join your voice with the voices of others as we gather simultaneously at 9:00 am in the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall.  The largest difference between the 2 services is the instrumentation.  The contemporary service has a band with guitars, drums and a praise team leading in worship through song.  The traditional service has a piano, organ and a choir leading in worship through song.

The Sanctuary Choir meets on Wednesday nights at 6:30 in the Sanctuary (for social distancing).  I could try to tell you where it is located but it would be easier for you to make contact and we will help guide you there.

The Handbell Choir meets on Monday nights at 7:00 and this is the 26th year that handbells have been in use at

First Baptist Church Cochran as instruments of praise.  Quite often there are opportunities for new ringers.

If the thought of that "strikes a chord" with you please let us know.  

The Praise Band and Singers practice on Sunday mornings in the Sanctuary. 

Children's Choir is an active group, presenting musicals at Christmas and in the spring of the year.  We have very capable leadership that has a great desire to teach more than just the music for performance.  If you have children from K-4 through 6th grade and they have an interest in music this would be a great opportunity for them.  

  • Contemporary Worship

    Is the music on your phone weighted toward contemporary Christian artists?  Is your heart of worship ignited by the rhythms of drums/guitars/keyboards and singers presenting the Gospel through newer songs of faith?  If you have gifts and talents (vocal, instrumental, drama, video/audio) that mesh with a contemporary worship style and would like more info about worship leadership opportunities, contact Jeff Dykes.

  • traditional worship

    Does your heart of worship resonate with the music & message of time-honored hymns that are accompanied by organ and piano; the message of a powerful anthem delivered through the voices of a choir?  There are many opportunities to serve within the traditional music ministry of our church:  choir, solo ministry, handbells, children's choir, and assisting behind the scenes with audio to name just a few.
