Music Ministry

The music program at First United Methodist Church exists primarily to assist the congregation in the worship of God. Through worship we become more aware of God and His holiness. As our minds are filled with the truth of God's Word, we are awed by His majesty and power. Through worship we gain a vision of God which results in our obedience to Him.  Finally, when we worship God, we grow in Christ and are inspired to serve God each day in every opportunity that comes our way. We believe that music brings us into a sense of the presence of God. We believe that music gives expression to our spiritual experiences. For many of us, singing is as close to worship as breathing is to life itself. 

Our traditional 11 a.m. worship service on Sundays in our sanctuary is filled with singing, including great hymns of our faith as well as contemporary choruses. We call this a blended style of worship.  Our Chancel Choir sings at this service, blessing us all with their messages in song.  See the Chancel Choir link at right for more info.

Spiritual education is also a focus of our music program. Often it is through music that we learn about the nature and character of God, the saving grace of Jesus, and the empowering direction of the Holy Spirit in our lives.  

We invite you to join our ministry through music!
