Church Choir

SANCTUARY CHOIR - 9:30am Service

Music is an important part of our christian heritage. As Methodist we love to sing and have a rich history in hymnology. From our first experience in Sunday School learning the songs we still love to sing to the importance of music as a statement of our faith at our funerals. Music is central to our spirituality.

Music and song should enhance the religious service and message being delivered by the Pastor each week. It should be fun and a joyful experience for all involved. It is not a concert/performance it is an offering of our God given talents to the service of praise. Music for this group is both classical and contemporary christian. You will find pieces which speak  directly to you and your life.

The Sanctuary Choir welcomes and comprises 9th grade – 95 year young members. Rehearsals are Thursday evenings 7 pm – 8:30 pm. It is a time of celebration and education as we move through our faith journey. Joy, fun, frustration, pride, spirituality, fellowship and accomplishment are all feelings that are experienced each and every week.

Bell Choir

The bell choir rehearses on Tuesdays, 6:30 – 7:30 PM. We play several times a year and also do outside performances. There are opportunities to attend workshops, conferences and concerts.

Coffee House Ministry

At FUMC, ministries and community come in many shapes and forms. One of our most favorite ministries are the five yearly Coffee Houses held in Fellowship Hall at the Church …the Back to School Coffee House in September, Thanksgiving Coffee House in November, Cabin Fever Coffee House in January, St. Patrick’s Day Coffee House in March and the Mother’s Day Coffee House in May. Performers from the surrounding area share their singing, dancing, musical instrument, poetry and storytelling talents on the 3rd Friday night in the month a Coffee House is held. Tasty treats and talented performers surrounded by an enthusiastic and fun loving audience creates an evening of exceptional fun and fellowship.

Our Mistress of Chatter keeps the evening running smoothly with jokes and chatter about all sorts of topics. No admission is charged. A basket for contributions to support local charities is at the entrance table. In the 15 years of the Coffee House, we have raised about $15,000 to help feed, clothe, house and provide necessities for local families in times of crisis. All are welcome…all you need is to grab a friend and join us for an old fashioned evening of entertainment and sometimes magical moments.
