Music Notes

Our Chancel Choir and Hi-Lo Ringers have made a return to our worship life at 1st UMC, successfully navigating the challenges that virus protocols have brought. They will end their “choir season” when they help lead us in worship at both services on June 6th, as we celebrate Music Sunday. This year’s theme “When in Our Music God is Glorified” will share music ABOUT music, and how we worship God in that way. We give thanks for our choir singers, our bell ringers, the praise band and praise singers, and all who have shared music as soloists or small groups throughout this past unusual year. We thank also our keyboardists, Brenda and Dillon, who have shared worship music and supported our congregational singing. Through them we have been able to keep our music ministry alive in almost every worship service, either online or in person, as we have made this journey. Music continues to be a strong part of what we do at FUMC, and we praise God for that blessing. Soli Deo Gloria… to God alone the glory.


We need volunteers for this wonderful community outreach event. Please contact John Coen at 740-653-3330 or sign up in the Parlor. Thank you!
