Decatur First is filled with music! Our music ministry is primarily focused on enhancing the congregation's worship experience by singing, playing eclectic and inspirational music, as well as taking music into the world to share the love of Christ. Our music offerings range from Handel to Hampton, Mozart to Motown and Bach to Broadway. The many choirs at Decatur First also offer special services and concerts throughout the year. If you're interested in joining our choirs, you won't need to audition for most of them, they're open to everyone. Whether you feel your God-given musical talent is large or small, there is a place for it to be nurtured and enjoyed here at Decatur First.


Annual Youth Music Mission | June 4-9

On June 4, the youth choir will embark on its annual Music Mission. We'll be commissioned at the 8:45am service that day and then head toward ... our mystery destination! The youth have not been told where we're going! That means if you follow us on the blog (, you'll know just about as much as they do about where we are and what we're up to.

Our audiences are in places like nursing homes, children's homes, hospices and assisted living facilities. We spend all week spreading the love of Christ to those we encounter in those venues, as well as other spots along the way. Follow along on the blog and be a part of the trip!
We'll celebrate our homecoming Sunday, June 11, at a single worship service at 11am in the sanctuary. The choir will perform most of their concert, and John Cowden will hoist a sermon (but don't let that keep you from hearing the awesome work of the youth choir!). See you there!

You Don't Need to Audition.

It's easy to join a choir. Just pick the day that works best for you and come to rehearsal. No audition or previous musical training is required. You can join a choir at any time during the year.
