Central UMC Choir Searching for New Members
The Central UMC choir and musicians are folks who love music and sharing their musical gifts in meaningful worship.  The music in our worship services encompasses a number of genres ranging from gospel to contemporary.  No matter the genre, the singers and musicians endeavor to be a channel for the Holy Spirit to work among the people so that they will experience the power of God’s love which will in turn lead to following Jesus and His call to serve others.

The Choir Family has a special prayer request to share with the Denton community.  We are praying to have at least 5 new members in our “family” by the end of this year.  If you enjoy praising God through music, we invite you to join us!  No musical training is necessary to help us make a joyful noise.  Choir practice is held each Wednesday evening in the Central UMC Choir Room from 7:00 – 8:00 pm.  (The worship service is in the church sanctuary each Sunday at 11:00 am.)
