Music Ministry

Music is a major part of what makes Christ UMC so special. The music in worship – anthems, hymns, responses, helps – are all chosen to help express the scripture for that day. We use many styles, ranging from chants and traditional choral music to gospel songs, contemporary worship songs, and African freedom music. Our worship experience enhanced throughout by the beautiful and simple sounds of the grand piano, played tastefully and movingly by the very talented Jon Calvin, our regular pianist. We offer multiple musical outlets and opportunties for all ages. Whether you want to just sing along with the congregation in church while you worship, join the choir or other musical ensemble, or just sit back and soak in the wonderful sounds, the music of Christ UMC will enrich your soul.

Adult Choir

Celebration Singers, the adult choir at Christ United Methodist Church is currently not practicing as a large group due to COVID-19, but that is not stopping us from experiencing the joy of everyone virtual through our online worship services. Our priority is not performance, but connecting people to God through music (although the quality of the choral singing is exceptional). When we do meet in person, we do not wear robes, and sit in the congregation instead of sitting in a choir loft so that we are a part of, rather than apart from, the worshipping congregation. Contact Rev. Anne Hook if you would like more information about how you can share your musical gift.
