Theatre & Arts

Nashville’s First Baptist Church offers unique opportunities for those with artistic and creative talents and gifts. There are venues here for actors, painters, writers, videographers, designers, and carpenters to share their gifts in ways that are blessings to our congregation and the community.

Dinner Theatre and Winter Gala

For more than 15 years, members and attendees of Nashville’s FBC – and others in the Nashville community – have come together in their love of the stage to present a dinner theatre production.

The event, which includes a silent auction fundraiser for the youth choir tour, is typically held in February.

Thirteen Broadway-style shows have been presented in the past 16 years, including “Fiddler on the Roof” in 2015.

Arts Service Group

The Arts Service Group is dedicated to both artistic endeavors and volunteerism. Members have participated in studio shows and art classes, as well as teaching fine arts classes for Nashville-area non-profit organizations. The group also volunteers to help with art-based activities in the community.

Whether you’re a painter or a carpenter, a writer and editor or an audio-visual technician, there’s an opportunity for you to get involved.
