traditional music


Contemporary music creates an environment for all to connect with God and experience the presence and power of the Holy Spirit through the arts.  This is accomplished through contemporary worship music, classic hymn arrangements, popular music, and videos– all which lead people to a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.  

We are always looking for instrumentalists, vocalists, sound/media presentation operators and other creative minds to join our band.  Learn more in the FUMC Link (page 39) about how you can get involved with the Ignite worship service or see the contact information below. 


At First United Methodist Church, we have a Concert Series where local musicians give of their time and talent. Our concerts are generally held on the thrid Sunday of each month at 4:00 pm. Check out the 2018-2019 FUMC Concert Series for more details.
