We believe that all parts of worship are "liturgy' in that they should be the work of the people. For us that means nothing is recorded and all musicians and vocalists are the people of the Church. HFUMC has a choir and a bell & chime choir that regularly participate in and enhance the worship experience for everyone. Members of our community with music abilities are all encouraged to participate, regularly or for special occasions.
The Chancel Choir is a new and growing ministry. We welcome all who love to participate in worship through the music of the church. Our primary role is to lead the congregation in hymn singing each Sunday. In addition we prepare music for special Sundays and celebrations.
""Sing lustily and with good courage. Beware of singing as if you were half dead, or half asleep; but lift up your voice with strength. Be no more afraid of your voice now, nor more ashamed of its being heard, than when you sung the songs of Satan."
--John Wesley's Directions For Singing, rule #4.
As a part of our music team HFUMC has a bell choir that participates regularly in worship and special events at the church as well as in the community. Bells have long been a part of Christian worship and still their tones summon the heart and spirit to deeper worship. Please come and enjoy, come and join in. Membership at HFUMC is not a requirement to practice and perform with the choir.
