“Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”
-Colossians 3:16 (NASB)
AFBC Worship Ministry
The Worship Ministry of Arley First Baptist is a vibrant representation of the body of Christ.  Through our multi-generational approach to worship, we believe God has called many to sing, others to play instruments, and still others to train children, youth, and adults to lead in worship – but He has called us ALL to worship.  We are brothers and sisters in Christ who love, care, and encourage one another. 
Whatever your talent level, you’ll find a multitude of opportunities to use your gifts for the Lord within this Ministry.  It’s our desire to join corporately with you as we ascribe to the Lord the glory due His  name.
