About Music Ministries

The Music Ministries at First Coppell provide an exciting and dynamic opportunity to share the good news of Jesus Christ. From vocal to instrumental, classical to contemporary, and traditional to modern, our Music Ministries enable worshipers of all ages and talents to support our church with their gifts, services, and witness through choirs, orchestras, praise bands, handbells, ensembles, and solo work.

In addition to serving and leading in Sunday morning services, our Music Ministries provide special programs including concerts, camps, and community activities.

Children’s Opportunities

 Children’s choir & handbells groups are great places for kids to learn about leading in worship, serving God and the church, and fulfilling their call to offer praise and worship to God. They also provide a wonderful avenue to develop a group of friends who share the love of music.

Children’s groups are organized by age/grade, follow an age-appropriate music curriculum, and occasionally sing in worship throughout the school year. These groups meet on Wednesday nights throughout the school year. New members are welcome!
