Music Ministry

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.   Psalm 100:1-2
Bishop Patterson and Dr. Francene Patterson have a commitment to develop Praise & Worshipers for the Kingdom of God!  To Worship and Praise the Lord in spirit and in truth with the gifts that he has bestowed upon us is key in developing a relationship with the Lord.

Bishop and Co-Pastor's desire through the Music Ministry is to set the atmosphere for a Dynamic Praise Experience and have True Worship to the Lord to usher in the Holy Spirit where God's people have an experience with God!  True Praise & Worship is more than just a sound, it is indeed a lifestyle.
The FBC Music Ministry is comprised of anointed, devoted and wonderfully well rounded individuals that have a desire to Praise our Lord and Savior with songs of praise and worship. We come out twice a week to practice and have a great time in the presence of God.  God is doing a wonderful work through our ministry to provide a three-fold blessing:
  • A blessing to those within the ministry engaged in praise, fellowship, and encouragement
  • A blessing to members and visitors during regular Sunday and Wednesday services as we help to usher in the spirit
  • A blessing to those in other churches and in the community as we glorify God at events around the metro Washington DC area. and beyond.
Bishop and Co-Pastor cordially invites you to become a part of the First Sterling's Music Ministry to "Lift Your Voice in Praise"!
