Music Ministries


FUMC uses music to generate excitement, beauty and inspiration in our weekly worship. The choral and instrumental programs are intended to nurture those involved and to give a means of participating in worship, outreach and praise as well as an opportunity for personal growth and enjoyment. Our music ministry welcomes anyone who would like to join in this most rewarding endeavor. Whether you are a professional musician or someone who wishes to join a musical group for the first time, there is a place for you.
