Theatre & Arts

First Baptist Nashville offers unique opportunities for those with artistic and creative talents and gifts. Actors, painters, writers, videographers, designers, and carpenters all have ways to share their gifts with the community in ways that have become blessings to our congregation and the community.

Dinner Theatre and Winter Gala

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

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 “Oklahoma!” in 2013.

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 art classes for Nashville-area non-profit organizations or volunteering 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.
