Building the Kingdom of God Through Following Jesus Christ

Music Ministries

 
 
CHANCEL CHOIR
 
CHANCEL CHOIR is open to college-age through adult singers.  This choir leads worship in the 10:30 AM service each week and presents two to three major programs or concerts each year, including the annual Christmas Cantata and a Holy Week/Easter presentation.  Contrary to popular opinion, reading music is not a requirement for singing in the Chancel Choir (most of our members say they do not "read music"), but a willingness to learn is a must! 
 
During the school year from September through May, Chancel Choir rehearsals are held on Wednesday nights from 6:45 until 8:15 p.m., and in the summer months a little earlier, from 6:00 until 7:15 p.m.  Nursery care is available for all rehearsals and services. Rehearsals are held in the beautiful Earle Cooke Music Suite and rehearsal area which is conveniently located directly beneath the sanctuary choir loft.
 
 
 
CHILDREN'S CHOIRS
 
The FUMC Music Ministries offer music learning and service opportunities for children from ages 4 through 7th grades.  The goal in all children’s music groups is to evidence the love of God to all children while providing quality, fun education in a nurturing Christian environment.
 
The Cherub Choir, children in pre-K through 1st grade, meets on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 to 6:15 in the Children's Building.
 
The King's Kids Choir, children in 2nd through 4th grades, also meets on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 to 6:15 in the Children's Building.
 
The Children's Voices Choir, for those in 5th through 7th grades, meets on Sunday afternoons from 3:30 to 4:30 in the Earl Cooke Music Suite.
