Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.
Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)
God created us in His image and desires our worship. Worship is the many ways that we show God our love, adoration, honor and praise. Music and creative arts are some of the ways that we worship at SPUMC. Whether you are musically talented and thinking of joining a choir, or just enjoy the excellent music on Sunday mornings, we can all be involved in the music ministries of SPUMC.
The Adult Choir meets every Wednesday at 7:00 pm. in the choir room which is located in our new fellowship hall. We perform a variety of musical styles and typically perform two large works annually for Christmas and Easter as well as leading worship during the 10:30 Service. No auditions are required, only the desire to serve the Lord with your gift of music.
The Praise Team rehearses every Wednesday at 6PM in the Choir room and helps lead worship during the 10:30 service. This group sings about every 6 weeks and also during the month of July when the Adult Choir is taking a vacation.
This group sings songs like “He Touched Me”, “Just a Closer Walk with Thee” and many more old time gospel favorites and sings during the 10:30am worship service about once every two months. Come join us at 5:00pm on Sunday evening.
Musicians in Worship
Brass, woodwind, string, percussion, guitar, and keyboard instruments all have a place in worship and can contribute and enhance music in the worship service. There are many different possibilities for solo and ensemble music. Rehearsals will be scheduled as needed.
Our technical team plays a very important role in enabling the church to see and hear what is being communicated each Sunday. We have volunteer positions in the areas of sound, video direction, camera operation and lighting. Some of these positions require training and a faithful commitment.
This is a new and exciting group that meets on Sunday evenings at 6:15pm in the Choir Room which is located in our new Fellowship Hall. This group is open to all students in 6th through 12th grade.
