Music Ministry


Calling All Musicians!

Did you know there are multiple opportunities for you to express your talents and make a joyful noise unto the Lord? There is a place for every talent and age group, from those who don't read music to those who have done it for many years.

Chancel Choir: This is the main Sunday morning choir. We rehearse Wednesday evenings, 6:30-7:30, and most every Sunday from Labor Day through Pentecost. Singers of all experience levels (age high school and older) are invited to join us for fun, fellowship, and music-making!

Oratorio Choir: Don't want to commit to every
Sunday? Come sing in the Oratorio Choir! This group prepares the special music for Christmas and Holy Week/Easter. Rehearsals for Christmas begin Wednesday, October 2 7:30-8:30 p.m. Just like the Chancel Choir, this group welcomes singers of all
abilities and ages- high school and older.

Flute Choir: New this fall! We're looking to start a Flute Choir (fancy name still TBD). Do you play the flute? Even if it has been several years, dust off your instrument and come join us. Let Suzanne know you are interested and we will find a rehearsal time that suits all members.

Instrumental Specials: Do you play an instrument? We would absolutely love to hear you! If you don't have a repertoire of solos, Suzanne is happy to help you find something and work with you. We can also pair you up for duets or trios, or use you as an accent on a choir anthem if being out there alone is a little too intimidating.

Vocal Solos and Small Groups: If you love to sing but cannot join one of the choirs, let us know and we will find an opportunity for you to shine! We can even help you select music that best suits you and allows you to share your praise and musical gifts.

For information on any of these opportunities, or ones that may have been missed, contact Suzanne at Suzanne.hatcher@monticello-umc.org.

Hymn Writing Opportunity
Are you someone who has a gift for the written word and poetry? Have you ever considered having your words turned into a hymn or other worship song? Send your writings to Suzanne, and she will look at turning them into something musical that can be shared with the congregation!

Visual Artists & Creative Types: We Need You!
If you have an eye for design and/or love to decorate, we need you to join the revamped Worship Committee. We will be discussing everything from seasonal d├ęcor to ways to enhance our worship experiences visually. Contact Suzanne Hatcher at
suzanne.hatcher@monticello-umc.org
or Pastor Hyemi at hyemi.jones@monticello-umc.org for more information!
