Music and Choir Opportunities

Dalton First is a historic yet vibrant church that has been helping people go deeper with Jesus for over a century.


Chancel Choir

Colossians 3:16- "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God."

The Choir leads songs, hymns and spiritual songs in a variety of anthems and arrangements that serve Christ’s Word of Truth in the sanctuary at our 11:00 am service. A smaller ensemble leads worship in our 8:45 am service. The choir also present worship concerts that reach our members and community through our annual Smiley Gregg Memorial concert, December concerts, Sacred Patriotic Concerts, and to Walker State Faith and Character Based Prison. Any Adult or Youth interested in becoming part of the Chancel Choir ministry is welcome to join any time of the year! Come and worship the Lord in Spirit and Truth in rehearsals and in our services!


Canterbury Bell Choir

Meets in the Adult Choir Room at 6:00 pm. We are welcoming new ringers to this wonderful group. If you are an Adult or Youth, you are invited to ring. They help lead worship in the sanctuary once a month.

Encounter Worship

In our contemporary-style “Encounter” worship service, we desire just that. To have a powerful, intimate encounter with the one true God, closely following the direction of the Holy Spirit. We believe that our worship is a double-edged sword, in that not only do we glorify God by the lifting of our voices, but that is our greatest weapon in fighting our toughest battles. We invite you to join us each Sunday as we minister to the heart of The Father and worship together in Spirit and in Truth! 

Are you interested in singing and playing with our worship team to lead others in worship, or serving in one of our volunteer media roles? We would love for you to join our team.
