Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness.

1 Chron. 16:29

     Even as David gave the command to worship the Lord, our God, we today live under the same expectation that we will worship God.  While worship is far more than just music, God has given us the gift of music as an instrument of expression to lift Him up and give Him the praise only He deserves.

     At FBC Effingham our worship style is blended, incorporating traditional hymns as well as current praise & worship songs.  We do not hold specifically traditional or contemporary services, but strive to be authentic and Biblical in our approach to worship.  We aim to provide an atmosphere in which a worshipper can be actively engaged in giving Him praise through song, prayer, the reading of His Word, and fellowship with others.

     We welcome you to worship with us each Sunday at 8:30 and 10:45 a.m. Most of all we encourage you to worship the Lord with your whole heart, soul, mind and strength. 


Sanctuary Choir

     The FBC sanctuary choir leads in worship at the 10:45 service each Sunday morning.  They regularly perform a music special during worship.   Their regular rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:00 p.m.



     Exaltation is a small praise team that leads in our 8:30 service.  They prepare a special music selection each week and also join the choir from time to time.  Their regular rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-7:00 p.m.


Praise Band 
     The FBC Praise Band leads worship 1-2 times each month. They rehearse on selected Wednesday evenings after choir. They naturally lead worship in a more contemporary style highlighting current and classic praise and worship music.
