Music at 1st
"Sing all. See that you join with the congregation as frequently as you can. Let not a single degree of weakness or weariness hinder you. If it is a cross to you, take it up, and you will find it a blessing."
from John Wesley's Directions for Singing Select Hymns, 1761
Whether it is sacred hymns sung by a large choir, the rhythm of a drum beat or the melodic tones of handbells, music plays an important role in the life of 1st UMC. We invite YOU to join us in whatever way you can to help make a joyful noise to the Lord!
