MUSICMINISTRY

Our purpose for the Music Ministry at Carmel United Methodist is to give glory to God through music.  Music provides a way for people to worship and praise. It is also another way members of the church can be involved.

ADULTCHOIR and CHILDRENSCHOIR

Chancel Choir

Rehearses on Wednesdays from 6:00 to 7:00 pm in the sanctuary during the school year. We sing a wide variety of musical styles of church music. On Sunday mornings we meet at 8:30 am in the sanctuary to review the music for the services. We sing for the 9:00 and 10:30 am services.  During the 10:30 am service  we sing in the first part of the service and the choir exits the choir loft before the message. For those who cannot commit to weekly participation in the Chancel Choir, seasonal opportunities are available.  This choir is led by David Morton. If you are interested in participating, contact David Morton at dmorton@carmelumc.org.

We're always looking for more members, so if you're interested in playing an instrument or singing with the Praise Band, or for more information about us, please contact mkeohane@carmelumc.org.
