The Music Ministry of White Bluff United Methodist Church
Starting February 3, 2012 we will be offering a Children’s Music Assembly as soon as the postlude is over. We will be using this time to teach some of the old, familiar songs that we all sang as children presented in a new and special way. The children will come down from Children’s Church and join us on the steps of the Chancel.
YouthPraise is for youth ranging from 6th through 12th grade. This ensemble meets in the Choir Room Sundays from 4:44pm until 5:25pm (just before time for Youth Worship). Mostly singing contemporary Praise and Worship, this group also helps prepare for major works such as our Christmas Cantata and will accompany the rest of the Youth as we go Caroling each December.
Our Chancel Choir meets every Wednesday at 7:15pm in the Choir Room. This group sings for the 9:30am service each week, occasionally singing for special services and other times. This adult choir family focuses on anthems and service music in an ongoing process that includes music for Lent and Easter as well as Christmas Cantatas and other special occasions.

The Resurrection Ringers (grades 6 through adult) are a dedicated Handbell ensemble, meeting Sundays from 11:50am to 12:45pm during the school year. This year we’ve combined the forces of our Adult and Youth bell ensembles, allowing us a much greater variety of music. This choir family plays roughly quarterly in our worship services and at other times out in the community.
There are always opportunities for folks who play an instrument or who would like to sing for one of our services, with ensembles put together (both instrumental and vocal) as the needs and abilities of our church family grow.
We would love to have you come and join one (or more) of our ensembles. Though I am admittedly biased, I think the folks who make music together here are a wonderful group and that you would enjoy becoming a part of our choir family.
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Blessings, Ronn Alford, Director of Music Ministries.
