At First United Methodist Church there are many opportunities to join one of our talented worship arts groups. Our goal is to help people encounter the divine through playing instruments, lifting voices in praise, liturgical dance, and other worship arts.
Below are a few opportunities that you will find in our Music Ministry.
We offer a week-long MUSIC CAMP in August. On Friday evening, the children perform the musical they have learned during the week.
GODLY PLAY - Ages 4 yrs to 2nd Grade: This group meets on Wednesdays from 4:00 to 4:45, September - May.
3N1 (handbells, percussion, and choral music) - 3rd - 5th grade: This group meets on Wednesday from 4:00 - 4:45, September - May.
ANGELITAS SACRED DANCE - 3rd - 5th grade: This group meets on Wednesdays from 4:45 to 5:30, September - May.
WESLEY CHOIR – 4 yrs. to 2nd Grade: This group meets on Wednesdays from 5:00 to 5:30, September - May. We develop musical skills, and learn about the Bible and the family of God through song and movement.
Transportation from school to the church is offered for all children’s music programs upon request.
