Dedicated to spreading God's word through the power of music, the Chancel Choir of First United Methodist Church is a vital music ministry.
This group of dedicated volunteer singers enjoy singing as an offering to God. The Chancel Choir provides music for Sunday worship three to four times a month, September through Pentecost Sunday in June.
In addition to regular Sunday services, the choir presents seasonal and special offerings.
We invite you to learn more about our choir and join us for rehearsals which are held Wednesday evenings beginning at 7:00, and Sunday mornings at 10:00. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in singing. If you're interested in joining our choir, please contact Jill Wilson, director.
We trust that you will find participating in the Chancel Choir an enriching, educating and enjoyable experience!
