Watch FPC’s Lindsey Bell Choir Perform “I Sing the Mighty Power of God”!

Watch and listen as our wonderful Lindsey Bell Choir performs an awe-inspiring version of “I Sing the Mighty Power of God” during our worship service on March 4. The youth bell choir was directed by Daniel Heath and accompanied by Patrice Barnett on the organ and Taylor Gonzales on the piano. Many thanks to Chip Van Gilder for videotaping the performance. You can also watch them perform “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” earlier in the service. If you need a pick-up to your day, you will want to watch and listen! And plan to attend our Easter Sunday celebration in a few weeks, where you will get to hear the Lindsey Bells again along with a symphonic band, our praise team, our chancel choir, and our pipe organ.
