We lift up our voices and praise the Lord!
At Christ UMC, we are fortunate to have an incredibly diverse music ministry. From a traditional chancel choir to a contemporary praise band and everything in between, there is a place for you to share your musical gifts with the community of faith. To learn more about any of our musical offerings, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Choir leads us in worship each week at our 11am traditional service. Our choir has been led by our Director of Music Ministries, Sarah Holloway, for over 20 years. In addition to leading our congregation in the singing of hymns every Sunday, our choir also performs an anthem prior to the sermon that connects with the weekly Scripture text. Our choir performs two concerts for the community each year: a Christmas concert every December and a camp meeting concert each July. Our choir rehearses every Wednesday night at 7:15pm in the choir room with childcare provided.
We have two choirs for our children to learn music and lead us in worship. 1st-3rd graders participate in our Sonlighter's Children's Choir and 4th-8th graders participate in Voices of Christ. Both groups rehearse on Sunday afternoons following the 11 am worship services with lunch provided.
We have two special groups that perform regularly in our worship services. Newsong is a vocal quintet comprised of five members of Christ UMC’s choir that performs monthly in our 8:45am worship service. We also have a Jam Band--a unique group of varying musical experience--that performs at our 8:45am worship service on every 5th Sunday.
If it's two, it's blue! On the second Sunday of each month in our 8:45am worship service, we feature different bluegrass groups from across East Tennessee.
