Music Ministries

Make a joyful noise!

At the United Methodist Church of Summit, we praise God through song using our voices and various instruments. All are invited to participate, church member or not. No experience is required in order to join any of the groups – only a desire to celebrate God’s love through song.  Our children’s groups focus on learning melody, rhythms, choral direction and being part of a group, in addition to having fun. Those  of all ages who play instruments are welcome to add their gifts to the worship experience.  From our littlest singers to our adult Chancel and handbell choirs, we enjoy praising God as we use our musical talents.

SINGING BELIEVERS (for children and youth)
Come join the Singing Believers Choir. God has already given you the tools you need, your voice and your spirit. Let us grow together in our faith through music. Rehearsals are for children and youth of all ages, each Saturday at 12:30 pm in the Music Room. Come, share your spirit.

BELL CHOIR
It’s a joy to work together and ring joyful music to the Lord. No prior experience is needed, just a willing spirit. Rehearsals are on Sunday mornings after worship at 11:45am in the Sanctuary throughout the school year.  Come and ring praises.

CONTEMPORARY ENSEMBLE
Our Contemporary Ensemble of singers, guitarists, drums, recorders, bass and piano are studying music from the new songbook “Worship and Song”. It includes praise music, recently written hymns, gospel songs and world music. Rehearsals are at 12:15pm in the Sanctuary throughout the school year.  All are welcome to share their musical gifts.

CHANCEL CHOIR
We use the theme “Joyful Songs to God We Sing” to remind us of our call to live a joy-filled life. All teens and adults are welcome to join our Chancel Choir, which offers music leadership in the weekly Sunday service. The Chancel choir rehearses at 9:30am on Sundays (in the Chapel) before worship throughout the school year.

Please come and share your gifts of song with us!
