Music Ministries

The music program at First UMC is diverse and exciting!  You don't have to be a "professional" in order to join in the fun...just a desire to serve God through the gift of music.  Whether you enjoy singing or prefer to play an instrument, the music ministry has a place for you!
** SPECIAL NOTE:  Please don't allow a physical difficulty to prevent you from taking part in the music ministries at First UMC.  If you are unable to use the stairs that lead up to the chancel area of the sanctuary, please know that we have a hydraulic lift which will accommodate your wheelchair, walker, crutches or any other piece of equipment you may need.   The ride is safe, smooth and only takes a few seconds!
If you've ever entertained thoughts of joining the Chancel Choir, we'd love to have you.  Rehearses every Wednesday at 7:30pm in the Sanctuary.Come "make a joyful noise unto the Lord" with us!  Nursery is available with advance notice. Contact Lori Dewitt, Director,
