Music Ministries

The Sanctuary Choir (high school through adult) is directed by director Aimée LarsonAmend. This choir fills the sanctuary with beautiful voices and sacred music for the 11:15 a.m. Sunday service (September through June) and for special services at Christmas and during Lent. Rehearsal time is 7 p.m. every Wednesday in the main church building. The choir also provides special music once a month in the summer, rehearsing in the hour before the service.

Mission Bells (high school through adult) rehearse Wednesday evenings, from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. in the Sanctuary. This group plays in worship once a month (September through June) at the 11:15 a.m. Sanctuary service. Training is available for beginning players.

 

The MICAH Praise Band accompanies congregational singing and leads worship at the 8:45 a.m. praise service in the MICAH Worship Center.

CrossFire is the youth band, led by Praise Leader, Jennie Pitney.  They typically rehearse in the MICAH Worship Center every other Sunday from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. CrossFire leads worship for the praise service about once a quarter and provides additional music for other all-church events. Individual members of CrossFire also join to lead worship with the MICAH Praise Band.

Rejoice! Kids’ Choir! Children’s choir time is at 10:10 a.m. on the first Sunday of the month beginning October 6th in the third floor choir room in the main church building. This group is for all children ages 3 through 5th grade. They sing in worship throughout the school year in both services. The children are led in singing and other musical merriment by Sarah Pitney-Torres and Courtney Karns.

Summer Choir – During the summer, ALL SINGERS (high school and older) are invited to sing on communion Sundays. The choir rehearses from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary and then sings during the worship service at 11:15 a.m.

Anthems are chosen for their accessibility, so they may be learned in one rehearsal. People singing in the Summer Choir will not wear robes. No sign-up is required. Just show up on Sunday morning and add your voice to the choir.

Mission Bells Choir Rehearsal
Dec 18 @ 5:15 pm – 6:30 pm

If you’ve ever had an overwhelming urge to play bells, now is the time to step up and try. Mission Bells is open to anyone from 6th grade through their 8th decade. (Just ask the director!) We meet in the Sanctuary every Wednesday from 5:15 to 6:45 p.m. and break just in time for Chancel Choir members to take a break before rehearsal in the Choir Room. We play, with a couple
of exceptions, on the 3rd Sunday of each month and ring for special events at FUMC and elsewhere in the community.

Several of our regular ringers prefer the earlier MICAH service and on “bell Sundays” are free to “ring-and-run” after the anthem at the 11:15 service.

If you have questions, please call, text, or email at 503-580-5590 or glendaserex@gmail.com.
