Music Ministry


Music is alive at Manchester UMC! Our exciting and dynamic music ministries allow people of all ages and abilities to give praise and thanks to God in a variety of different ways, and provide opportunities to serve others. Currently, more than 400 persons of all ages sing, ring, or play an instrument to the glory of God.

Our goals in the ministry of music are:

  • to beautify and enhance worship through music and other arts;
  • to educate our children in the function of music in worship and to further their Christian faith and education through the texts of hymns and anthems;
  • and to give opportunities for fellowship and service to all members of the church through God's gift of music.

Music opportunities are always available to new members, and we encourage everyone in the congregation to participate. The only requirement is a true desire to be of regular and dedicated service. Childcare is provided for all adult choirs as needed.
