OPPORTUNITIES FOR MUSICAL PRAISE
The Bible encourages us to “Sing unto the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of melody, with trumpets and sound of the horn; make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King”-Psalm 98:5-6.
The First United Methodist Church of Warren offers many options of musical praise to our Lord. All ensembles are open to new members; there are no required auditions. In addition to the musical groups listed below, we encourage solos and small ensembles. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Twylia Voshol, music director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 586-264-4701.
