Fine Arts

Music and other forms of Fine Art are powerful components of worship. Fine Arts can awaken our senses and make our worship more meaningful. First United Methodist Church is committed to Music and Fine Arts as a ministry. God wants us to use our abilities no matter how great or small.


Our Music and Fine Arts Ministry offers many venues where people can become connected to this vibrant part of the life of the church. Whether you sing, play an instrument, or just have a fondness for the arts, there is a place for you in our Music and Fine Arts Ministry.


Music is an integral part of the life at First United Methodist Church. The congregation and choir join voices as they sing the hymns of our faith. The hymns invite the Spirit of the Lord into our worship service as it provides a way for us to offer praise collectively. At First United Methodist Church we encourage everybody to join in singing praises at home, at play, and at church regardless of musical inclination. All are invited to experience worship with us as a congregant, or as a participant in one of our many ensembles.


Please take time to become better acquainted with our program by browsing our various web pages and their links. We hope you will find an area that meets your needs.
