The Music Ministry at First United Methodist Church is a vibrant and an exciting part of our church family.  We believe that God will use our gifts for music to lead in praise and worship, to touch hearts and lives with joy and enthusiasm, and to offer our love for God in worship.  We offer a variety of music through different groups, choirs, and instrumentalists that will interest people of all ages.  Everyone is welcome to take part in the music ministries. 

Please check the worship guide or contact the Director of Music Ministries for rehearsal times and schedules for all choirs and groups.  There is a place for you!
