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.
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 singer/song-writer and musician Spike Burton. It works as a small group, where we lean on each other and bare our burdens through prayer and open communication. We are committed to our call to lead others in the worship of God through music, and because of this recognize that every member of the team is in fact a “worship leader.” Every rehearsal begins and ends with prayer, has an in-depth study of God’s Word, and the sharing of prayer concerns. We lead worship at both the Saturday 5:30 pm Open Door service, as well as the 9:45 am Contemporary Service on Sunday mornings. We rehearse every Tuesday from 7-9 pm. Email Spike Burton if you are interested in becoming a team member.

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.

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.
