Chancel Choir

The Bible tells us to “make a joyful noise unto the Lord” (Psalm 100:1), to “sing to the Lord a new song” (Psalm 98:1).  The Bible even tells us that Jesus and his disciples sang together (Matthew 26:30).

Join us in leading the congregation in worship!  We have a wonderful choir and a great music program here at First Church.  We concentrate on the classics … Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Mozart … but we also love to explore the spirituals, gospel, and contemporary music.  Chancel Choir sings every Sunday from Labor Day thru mid-June.  We rehearse Wednesday evenings at 7:30, Sunday mornings at 9:30.

We are always receptive to new members!  There are no membership requirements other than a reliable commitment to attend most rehearsals.  You don’t need a solo-quality voice, or any training in music.  You need only be receptive to learn and sing a part in tune.

Chancel Bell Choir

FUMC Bell Choir performs several times during the year including Christmas and Easter.  Our bell choir provides an important link to our community, continuing a long-running association with the annual Las Posadas festival at Mission San Jose.

Membership is open to all ages by audition.  Please contact our music director for information.  We would love to have you.
