Worship Arts

Worship at JUMC is fully Christian – all our worship is a gift to God. It is our intent to enthrone Christ on our praises and fully engage with the Holy Spirit! It is lively and it is reflective – our desire is for everyone to encounter the one true God.

The heart of the musical vision of our church is that all God’s people, in all our diversity, sing our praise and worship to God together. On a Sunday morning, led by the choir, organ and our music teams, we raise our voices together in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs (Eph. 5:19).

Our 8:30 service is primarily choir and organ driven. The classic hymns of the church are sung.

The 11:00 gathering is post-modern renewal service with a live band, visual media and vocal team. The energy is often high but there is solemnity as well.

Whatever your age and ability, there is an opportunity for you to participate in our music program. We hope you will check out one of our worship ministry teams (below) and get involved!
