Chancel Choir

During the traditional service, in our historic sanctuary, our Chancel Choir under the direction of Emily Gonsoulin, and accompanied by Marlene Mullenix lead the congregation in traditional Christian hymns. After the sermon, the choir performs an anthem.

The Chancel Choir practices on Tuesdays from 6:30 p.m.  to 8:00 p.m. in the Choir Room on the second floor.

As Director of Music Ministries, I conduct the Chancel Choir and work to develop a deeper understanding of music’s role in the faith and mission of our church. Since music is such an integral part of worship, it is my goal to grow the program through concerts, events, and special music services. If you are interested in joining the choir or would like to support music ministries at FUMC, I would love to hear from you!

Okay, here is the exciting news!

Rev. Weldon has given the OK for us to meet and sing hymns together in the Worship Center! We will all wear masks and sit 6 feet apart, and all chairs will be sanitized before and after you use them. For everyone who feels comfortable, we will plan to meet on Tuesday, July 28th from 4:30-5:30 (come early to get your hymnal from the choir room and get set up). There are 73 seats in the Worship Center all placed exactly 6 feet apart so we can really spread out in there. 


I urge anyone with serious health conditions or anyone who is exhibiting symptoms to stay home. Your health and safety is the top priority! Perhaps we can utilize Zoom or Facebook Live to get everyone involved. :)


Hang in there, guys! I hope to see you soon!
