Music at First Church
The music program at First Church is designed to provide opportunities for all persons at FUMC to develop their musical talents and use them in service to God. Since music expresses who we are and what we believe, it is a vital part of becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Children’s Choir Camp
Our Children’s Choir Camp is a wonderful program! The children have a fun time learning worship songs and love to praise God with the music they learn! Children in grades 1-6 sing during worship after Children’s Choir Camp.
