We have a robust music ministry that enriches our worship experience and offers various musical opportunities. We have music ensembles who perform weekly, monthly and on special occasions. If you sing or play hand bells or other musical instruments, we would love for you to join us in these music ministries.
Choral Scholars Program
The purpose of the FUMC Choral Scholars Program is to expand FUMC’s faithful worship of God by complementing our Choirs, Music, and Ministry with University-level students of faith, talent, and industry. It is our goal to encourage our recipients in the development of their spirituality and artistic ability with the purpose of providing further framework to their commitment to Christ and His Church. FUMC will offer four scholarships (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) with the intention of commitment and scheduling of the recipients in September. Recipients will sing with our Family and Sanctuary Choirs on Sundays and act as section leaders of their respective vocal classification.

The Sanctuary Choir sings for all 11:00 am service in the Sanctuary. This choir performs music from Bach to Modern Contemporary. They rehearse every Wednesday from 7:15-9:00 pm in the Choir Room (#113). We are most happy to have new singers who have the desire to learn to sing. Sight reading is a plus but not a necessity. This choir performs special Cantata and Mission related Concerts.
The Praise Team is made up of people of all ages and abilities and is led by our Contemporary Worship Director Jennifer Leja. Committed to our call to lead others in the worship of God through music, we recognize that every member of the team is in fact a “worship leader.” Our Praise Team leads worship at the 9:45 am Contemporary Service on Sunday mornings. Rehearsals are every Thursday from 7-9 pm. Email Jennifer Leja if you are interested in joining the team!
Youth Worship Team
Youth Worship Team is where our youth have the opportunity to learn music and to lead worship with their peers, for their peers! They will also have multiple opportunities to share what they have learned to our church congregation on Sunday mornings! The Youth Worship Team is open to sixth through twelfth grade students involved in youth group. Practice is at 3:30 on Sunday afternoons, right before youth group, beginning August 18th. Email Jennifer Leja for more information.
The Family Choir joins the youth choir on the first Sunday of every month. This low commitment choir rehearses the Sunday before. In addition to contributing to worship, they assist on special concerts and special holiday worship services.
The Children's Choir is comprised of first through fifth grade students. In our Children’s Choir program, the kids learn about the different elements of music and how to worship the Lord in song! No singing experience is required to join! Their new practice time is Sundays from 11-11:45 in the Children’s Choir Room on the main church level.
This choir is for our youngest members. It is comprised of 3 year old - Kindergarten and meets Wednesdays at periods throughout the school year. Contact Jillian Murray if you are interested in learning more.
Does your preschooler like to sing and have a heart for Jesus? Do they like being the center of attention and performing in front of a crowd? If yes, then they’d be perfect for FUMC’s Angel Choir! For more info, please contact Jillian Murray.
This is our adult and advanced youth ensemble. This group practices every Sunday from September through May. They perform every month and for special events through out the year. Often times, they will travel to a bell festival in the spring or fall. You do not have to have experience ringing bells to play in this ensemble, however you must be able to read music.
