Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir is a traditional mixed-choir that uses music to share God’s love with those around during the traditional 11:00 worship service. We also make special musical presentations for Christmas and Easter. This group is open to anyone interested. Music reading is not necessary.

The Mission of the First United Methodist Church Praise Team is :

“To delight in worship for the pleasure it brings to God and to express praise for who God is and what He is doing in our lives”.
The Praise Team is an auditioned band. If you are gifted in the area of music ministry, and would like an opportunity to audition please contact Lori Gilkinson, the Praise Team Leader.
The Praise Band:
John Chalmers – Vocal/Bass Guitar
Dave Chamberlain – Drums/Percussion
Richard Davis – Piano
Lori Gilkinson – Vocal/Flute
Rip Ripley – Rhythm/Lead Guitar
Brandon Parker – Keyboard
Olyn Whitaker – Vocal/Lead Guitar
We also are blessed to have a gifted A/V Ministry who works with us each week to make sure that the congregation hears and sees what they need to have meaningful worship. The Praise Team enjoys leading worship each Sunday morning during the 8:30am Contemporary Service. The music they enjoy bringing is a mixture of Contemporary Christian standards, newer Praise and Worship material, as well as textural elements of Southern Gospel and Traditional Hymns.
