The music ministry at First Presbyterian Church, Noblesville is steeped in tradition, but also offers an eclectic mix designed to draw the listener into a deeper worship experience. “Another reason I continue to serve FPC is their interest and commitment to its music ministry which is diverse in terms of styles and participation of adult choirs, children’s choir, bell choir, pipe organ, occasional ‘praise band’ with the minister playing bass,” says music director Dr. Michael Davis. The warm historical elements of the sanctuary help to create a very comfortable worship environment and serve as a compliment to the overall music ministry. Join us on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am to lift your voice in praise to God. We are confident that the music will lift your spirit and put an extra bounce in your step for the week to come.
I came to FPC in 2004. Having grown up in a Christian home with ministers and missionaries on both sides of my family, being involved in church and church leadership/ministry feels very “normal” and is something I enjoy. One reason I continue to serve FPC is because of the people. The congregation is vital, friendly and filled with talented, caring people. Another reason I continue to serve FPC is their interest and commitment to its music ministry, which is diverse in terms of styles and participation of adult choirs, children’s choir, bell choir, pipe organ, and occasional “praise band” with the minister playing bass. I also love the beautiful, historic sanctuary and the traditional worship style we tend to follow while integrating any number of modern elements to our service.

The Chancel Choir at First Presbyterian faithfully provides anthems, under the direction of Dr. Michael Davis, for our worship services nearly every Sunday September-May. The choir rehearses every Thursday evening in the sanctuary starting at 7:00p.m.. They sing a wide variety of music from Classical to Old Hymn tunes and from Gospel to Contemporary. In addition to weekly service anthems, the choir also performs a cantata, major work such as the Messiah or musical drama/opera taking an entire service at Christmas and again during lent.
There are a variety of ways you/your group can be a part of our Special Music at the First Presbyterian Church. September-May, you can share your talents during an Offertory, Moment of Reflection or Prelude. In the summer months we depend on our “Special Music Volunteers” to provide solos in the absence of a weekly choir anthem.
At these services, we sometimes have one person/group provide two pieces, once for special music and one for the Offertory, but, we also often have two different people/groups do one or the other. So, if you play an instrument, sing with a group or solo, please consider being a part of the Music Ministry!
Our traditional vacation bible school was replaced with a Summer Performing Arts Camp. This week long experience allows kids of all ages to take to the stage and share Gods mission in word and song. Participants not only do two performances for parents, grandparents and community, they also create the set and costumes. This program has been a standing favorite each year with our young people at FPC
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Christ in the Arts Concerts have been put on hold. Please check back; we hope to hold concerts in the near future! Here's a list of past Christ in the Arts Events:
First Presbyterian Church is excited to add an additional music program to our ministry! In 2015, Michael Davis, FPC Music Director wanted to share our amazing sanctuary (and beautiful music venue) with others in the community outside our immediate congregation and provide high quality musical performances free to the public. Michael is also the Assistant Artistic Director of the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and is surrounded by talented musicians both inside and outside our congregation. Thus Christ in the Arts was born.
