First United Methodist is blessed to have a very active music ministry.  We have three different choir opportunities for people to participate in on a regular basis.  In addition, there are opportunities to share musical abilities on a one time or occasional basis.  Each group is made up of individuals with a true love and talent for music.  They find much joy and fellowship in sharing their spiritual gift of music with First United Methodist and we are a richer church community because of their talents!  If you are interested in getting involved with FUMC through music, please reach out to one of the choir directors or the church office.
