Music is an important part of worship.  It provides meaningful ways to respond to God’s love and creative ways to share our faith with others.  The elements of praise and prayer make music vital to our services.

Choirs also provide groups where we can develop friends within the church family.  Joining others gives a sense of purpose, accomplishment and belonging.

St. James UMC Music Ministry is open to everyone.  Your time will be well spent as you experience the joy of service to God and St. James UMC.

Make music ministry a part of your involvement.  We’d love to have you join us.

Linda Merrill, Director of Music Ministry
