First Methodist Music Ministries work “to enhance and provide leadership through music for the inspiring worship of God and the Risen Christ.”
The worship of God through music has long been an important value of the people of First Methodist. Our Music Ministries provide an opportunity for people in our faith community to share their gifts with God and the congregation. Participating in one of our music groups is also a great way to build friendships and enjoy fellowship with other church members.
Rehearsals on Thursdays | 7:00-8:15 p.m.
Sings at Sunday morning sanctuary services
The Chancel Choir regularly prepares music from the classical repertoire for our Sunday morning services in the sanctuary. Twice a year, the choir leads the congregation in worship through the singing of a choral masterwork with orchestra. One does not need to audition to join the Chancel Choir, nor does one need to be a musician (though some knowledge of music is always helpful).

The Open Door worship team leads music at our contemporary service, The Open Door, on Sundays in the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. This group is always looking for musically-gifted volunteers with a heart for helping people connect to God through music. Instrumentalists must be able to learn parts from chord sheets and recordings, and vocalists should be capable of picking out and singing both melody and harmony parts on a recording.
