Part Time Contemporary Worship Leader

We value authenticity and real, honest, genuine expressions of deep faith through worship that invites the congregation into authentic, real worship. More than leading songs, we desire our worship leader to worship, to lead the worship team to worship, and to draw the congregation into that same space.


If you feel God leading you to take a congregation to a deeper place as a part-time worship leader, please apply by sending a copy of your resume, a cover letter and possibly a link to see you leading worship to worshipboard@firstbaptistplainfield.org before February 6th.

Responding to Covid-19

Things are always changing. In the beginning of the pandemic, there was a period where we met only online. We reopened to in person services with multiple safety procedures in place, and thanks to our care and concern for the wellbeing of our community, we were blessed with a season of togetherness, albeit differently than ever before. In the winter of 2020, we were forced to once again return to virtual-only services. However, since February 2021, we have been able to remain open for in person services, going through seasons of relaxed safety measures and those of great caution and concern. Together, we have remained united as a community of Christ followers, striving to love our neighbor to the best of our ability each day. We are so thankful for how our church family has responded with kindness, compassion, and care for our neighbors. We hope that this spirit will continue as we navigate each new twist and turn of the COVID-19 pandemic.


Currently, with the Omicron variant making its way through the United States, we are encouraging another season of higher caution and concern for one another. 


We recommend and urge persons to wear masks while in the building and/or in close proximity to others, and leadership is devoted to continual revisiting of best practices and policies.


We are not going to force anyone to mask up, but you will find our pastors most often donning a mask on Sunday mornings and in meetings. We do this in order to love others well, at the cost of a minor inconvenience such as getting those annoying little fuzzies in your mouth when your mask begins to pill (we aren't alone in that, right?).


Most of all, we want our message in the community to be one of love; love of Christ and love for our neighbor guide us in every decision we make. We continue to pray for those impacted by COVID-19, and we will persist in doing our part to take care of one another to the best of our ability.


Thank you!
