GUMC values music and the essential role it plays in worship and connecting people to the presence of God. Our music ministries include vocal and hand bell choirs and have a place for young and old, beginning and advanced. All groups welcome new members.
- Worship Service Team: The Worship Service Team is a fun and energetic group of all ages who love to sing and share contemporary Christian music. All musicians, vocalists and instrumentalists, are welcome to join the Worship Service Team. Current instruments include guitar, drums, piano, bass and the occasional tambourine. Weekly practice schedules are designed to work with a variety of busy schedules. Worship Service Team members can choose the worship service time(s) and Sundays that work best in their schedules.
- Praise Team: The Praise team is a 4-part choir that performs several times a year during worship services and for special occasions. The spirited choir, made up of singers of all abilities and experience levels, share their talent in a more traditional choral fashion. Practice takes place on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at 9:30 a.m. in the sanctuary.
Hand Bell Choirs
Bell choirs play at both Sunday services, approximately once per month, during the academic school year.
- Radiant Ringers: A beginner bell choir group made up of ringers who are just learning to ring and those with several years of experience. Weekly practices are held on Wednesday evenings from 5:15 – 6:00 p.m. during the academic school year.
- Carillon Choir: An advanced group of ringers who enjoy being musically challenged while spreading the love of God. Weekly practices are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:15 – 7:00 p.m. during the academic school year.
GUMC’s bell choirs are directed by Monique Shore.
