Music in our church plays an important and integral part in worship.
Adult Sanctuary Choir
The Adult Sanctuary Choir (high school juniors and up) learns and shares a variety of sacred music in worship during the program year. Our volunteer choir meets in the choir room to rehearse Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm and Sunday mornings at 8:45 am during the fall, winter and spring. Our numbers fluctuate during the year, but we average around 20 singers most Sundays. We are fortunate to have several accomplished instrumentalists among the choir and congregation, and they are encouraged to add to our choral work on a regular basis.
The Connexions Concerts series was founded in 2008 to accommodate the many talented singers and players found in the SUMC community. It is an ongoing opportunity to showcase their talents and to invite other friends and performers into our church.
The organ is an important support for almost all of our music. Sunday preludes and postludes are an opportunity to explore the capabilities of this tracker (mechanical action) instrument. Kevin Murphy, our Music Director, chooses the music with thought and care and awareness of the liturgical year.
