Worship

Praise the Lord! How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise Him Psalm 146:1

The music ministry touches every area of the church from children to adults. We seek to help people develop and use their talents to glorify God, and to enhance our worship services. You are invited to get involved in the music ministry of CUMC. If you enjoy singing or if you play in instrument, there is a place for you to use your gifts.

Chancel Choir

Rehearsals are every Wednesday evening from 7:00 to 8:30 and the choir sings each Sunday morning during the 11:00 worship service. If you are in high school or older we would love to have you come and sing with us. New singers are welcome and needed! Ability to read music is not necessary, just the ability to sing on pitch. Even if you cannot commit to rehearsals every Wednesday, come and check us out any Wednesday. We have a great time of fellowship as we sing together. Rehearsal CDs can be made available upon request. This fall we will also be working on our Christmas Cantata and we encourage other singers to be part of the cantata choir. Watch for cantata rehearsal dates to be announced in the fall.

Praise Team

The Praise Team meets on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 PM and leads worship at the 8:45 AM Sunday Service. New singers (high school students and adults) are always welcome. Please contact Contemporary Worship Director Dan Austin for more information about singing on the team.

Handbells
Bells of Praise

Our adult bell choir practices every Monday evening from 7:30 - 9:00 PM. Everyone is welcome to join, regardless of your level of musicianship. The Adult Bell Choir has members with ages from 14-99. We play as a large group ensemble about 4 times a year, and smaller groups, duets or accompaniment to the choir many times throughout the year. Joining the Bell Choir is a wonderful way to worship and share your gifts. Your commitment does not need to be for the entire year; you may join for just one session. We need you on any level of commitment.

Instrumentalists

Youth and Adult musicians are invited to play special solos or ensembles during Sunday morning worship services. Young people who play an instrument are encouraged to play for our Family Christmas program. Please contact Choir Director Todd Suckow if you would like to play.
