“O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth.”
The Music Ministries at Christ United Methodist Church offer a variety of ways for people of all ages to lead our congregation in worship through music. From singing to playing handbells or other instruments, everyone is welcome to find a place to musically serve the congregation.
Descriptions of Christ Church’s music ensembles appear below. For more information about any of the choirs or to express interest in joining, please contact:

Additionally, they provide special music for other events/services in the life of the church – Christmas Eve, Easter, Holy Week, etc. Experience singing and reading music are, of course beneficial, but are not required…we have a loving team of singers that help one another succeed!
