Music Ministry

Our Music Ministry at First United Methodist Church in Sulphur Springs is a vibrant ministry for all ages. Our goal is to glorify God and inspire others with exciting and worshipful music.


Music is the way we at First UMC share our faith and experience community in fellowship as we praise God. As a beginner or seasoned musician, you are invited to share your musical talents through adult, youth, and children's choirs, ensembles, handbells and instrumental groups.


We have a children's program, an adult handbell choir, and Adult Chancel Choir. The Chancel Choir provides the music for the 10:45 worship hour. All other groups participate in worship on a regular basis. We invite you to join any one of our groups.


Rehearsal Schedules

Adult Chancel Choir - Wednesdays at 6:30 pm

Adult Handbells - Sundays at 6:30 pm

Christmas Rehearsals have begun

We invite you to join us each Wednesday evening at 6:30pm as we work on this beautiful music for our Christmas cantata that will be presented on Sunday, December 16.


Rhapsody in Bluegrass is a joyful work based on American folk songs, spirituals, bluegrass-styled carols and original gospel songs.  Traditional choral elements dance easily with the rustic qualities of the music and the results are pure joy.


Set hearts soaring with this unique rendering of the Christmas story!
