Music Ministry - First United Methodist Church of Gilbert
Music Ministry First United Methodist Church of Gilbert offers many opportunities for singers and musicians of all ages and levels of musicianship to join its lively and varied music program. The Music Ministry strives to provide a diverse spiritual offering. The Sunday 8:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. services center around traditional music, regularly requiring the use of the organ, piano, and sometimes orchestral instruments, so as to establish an atmosphere conducive to worship and prayer. A broad range of musical styles can fall under this traditional music umbrella ranging from music of the Renaissance church through anthems influenced by the contemporary Christian movement. The Sunday 11:00 a.m. service provides a more casual and contemporary atmosphere with a band. There are numerous opportunities to participate or assist the Music Ministry. All ensemble rehearsals are held at the church—some in the choir room, some in the bell room, and some in the sanctuary—and while we have a steadily growing program of participants, we are always looking to add to the ranks of both experienced and inexperienced volunteers. If you have an interest in joining one of our groups in the music program, please email our Director of Music Ministries, Marty Province, or through the church office at (480) 892-9166.
