Music & Worship Arts
The Music & Worship Arts ministries at First Methodist • Downtown Jackson exist to enable more perfect worship, both personally and corporately. Participants come with a willing spirit and an eagerness to give their time in service to this congregation and its worship. Be sure to learn about our ensembles and other avenues for ministry. All are welcome and encouraged to participate in Music & Worship Arts. Contact Stan Brunner about worship opportunities.
The Sanctuary Choir leads music for our 10:00 am worship service. They begin rehearsals at 7:00 pm on Wednesday in the choir room located in the lower level of the building. New anthems, as well as older familiar anthems, are to be rehearsed, along with service music to enhance worship services. All interested singers (no auditions required) are encouraged to join for these rehearsals which last until 8:30 each Wednesday evening.
Christmas Music preparation is to be the first part of each Wednesday’s rehearsal time. Singers who wish to participate in Christmas are encouraged to do so.
