Music/Media Ministry

First Baptist Church Hilton Head Island has a very active music ministry both in traditional & contemporary music. For those of you who love traditional music, we have a children and adult choir, a handbell ensemble, and opportunities to lead worship on Sunday mornings. With Contemporary, we have opportunities to get plugged in with the worship band, AV, and to enroll in a music camp throughout the summer with Don Hansen and Olivia Rainwater.

Children’s Choir

Our Children’s Choir consists of members that are in Preschool through Grades 5. Rehearsals begin at 5:45 PM in the Children’s Building on Wednesday evenings, September – May. The children sing occasionally for worship services. They also prepare special musicals that are presented to the church body.

Sanctuary Choir

Our Sanctuary Choir consists of adults and meets in the music suite in the sanctuary. Choir rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 6:15 – 7:45 PM. The Sanctuary Choir sings music in the traditional worship service at 9:45 AM. They also prepare an annual musical for the Christmas holiday season.

Handbell Ensemble

The Joyful Sounds Handbell Ensemble is a three-octave handbell and hand chime choir. The choir rehearses on Tuesdays at 10:00 AM for one hour and occasionally plays in the worship services. The choir also occasionally performs in the community.

Worship Band

Worship band practice meets after the sanctuary choir on Wednesday nights at 7:30 PM. If you have experience playing contemporary instruments, contact We would love for you to join us!


AV/Media has occasional training sessions throughout the year. Outside of that, the AV team just meets for rehearsal at 8 AM for the traditional service and at 10:15 AM for the contemporary service to practice with the band. If you decide to join the audio-visual team, don’t worry, we will train you. Opportunities in AV include running the soundboard, ProPresenter (slides), Livestream, or taking photos.

The Mission of First Baptist Church of Hilton Head Island is:

Making Biblical disciples who love, serve and share Christ with all people.
