Music Ministries

The Music Ministry of White Bluff United Methodist Church

 

  

 
Our Chancel Choir meets every Wednesday at 7:00pm in the Choir Room. This group sings for the 9:30am service each week, occasionally singing for special services and other times. This primarily adult choir family focuses on anthems and service music in an ongoing process that includes music for Lent and Easter as well as Christmas Cantatas and other special occasions.

Exciting News!!!

We are starting up our Children’s Choirs and Tone Chime program again on Sunday, August 18.  Each Sunday we’ll begin in the choir room at 3pm, where we’ll have roughly a half hour each of choir and tone chimes, followed by a program including games to be finished by 5pm. This year we're excited to break our group into two different ensembles, for ages 4 through 7 as well as for 8 and up!

Our Music Ministry for Children is Pneuma (pronounced “NEW-ma”), which is the Greek word for “breath.”  Even as God breathed life into the simple clay, we use our breath to sing His praises.  “Every breath we take is the breath of God.” 

At the 9:30am service on Sunday, October 13, we will celebrate Children's Sabbath and our children will sing and ring the Tone Chimes.  December 1 Pneuma will be featured in the Hanging of the Greens service with joyful singing and will join members of our youth in a special drama.  Make your plans to join us today!

We will use the drawing above to represent our new group; it was drawn by Lois Crossley and we will use it as we begin anew in honor of her many years of strong, dedicated service.

There are always opportunities for folks who play an instrument or who would like to sing for one of our services, with ensembles put together (both instrumental and vocal) as the needs and abilities of our church family grow.  I am always happy to arrange our repertoire to fit others as folks come forward who might be interested.
 
We would love to have you come and join one (or more) of our ensembles. Though I am admittedly biased, I think the folks who make music together here are a wonderful group and that you would enjoy becoming a part of our choir family.
