How about this: define new function G[{a_,b_,c_},x_]:= a Sin[b x +c] (or just 
G[{a_,b_,c_},x_]:=F[a,b,c,x]) and then feed your parameters as
Thread[G[k,x]] or Map[G[#,x]&,k] :

In[1]:= k={{a1,b1,c1},{a2,b2,c2},{a3,b3,c3}};
In[2]:= G[{a_,b_,c_},x_]:=F[a,b,c,x]

In[3]:= Thread[G[k,x]]
Out[3]= {F[a1,a2,a3,x],F[b1,b2,b3,x],F[c1,c2,c3,x]}

In[4]:= Map[G[#,x]&,k]
Out[4]= {F[a1,a2,a3,x],F[b1,b2,b3,x],F[c1,c2,c3,x]}
