“O come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise.” Psalm 95:1-2
Chancel Choir: The PUMC Chancel Choir is open to all persons 7th grade thru Senior Adults that are interested in worshipping God though song. Music reading skills and prior singing experience are not necessary, just a willing heart and voice. We help lead singing and present an offertory most weeks in the 11:00 a.m. worship service from August-June each year. In addition to singing we often share laughs and prayers with one another. Regular rehearsals are Wednesdays at 6:45 p.m. in the Sanctuary. Childcare is available with prior notice.
Joyful Noise Children’s Choir: This group, led by Melanie Stewart, meets Wednesday nights from 6-7pm during the school year. See Children’s Ministries for details.
Cantatas/Seasonal Musical Worship Experiences: For those looking for a short-term opportunitiy to worship in song or those who do not want to be up front every Sunday, participating in one of our cantatas is a great option. Each year we typically present a Christmas Cantata. Rehearsals are held together with the chancel choir but are shorter in duration, growing as the presentation approaches. Childcare available with prior notice.
Special Music: Do you play an instrument or are you interested in singing a solo, duet or trio at some point? We have all sorts of opportunities for those interested in using your musical gifts in worship at both services as individuals or in small groups with more to come.
Support Roles: Do you like to act, sew, or are you interested in learning how to help operate our sound system? Opportunities are available for ministries in these areas and are important ways that you can help with music ministry that do not require singing or playing an instrument.
If you are interested about these or other music related opportunities available at PUMC, please contact Philip Bentham, Interim Director of Music Ministries.
