The Chancel Choir is a choir open to adults, aged high school and older, interested in worshipping the Lord through song. The choir consists of men and women who lead the traditional services in worship between the fall and spring.  The choir also typically prepares a Christmas Cantata and Easter/Good Friday Cantata each year.  If you would like to join us, we would love to have you.

If you have a heart that loves to praise and worship God, we have a place for you in the choir!

The links to the two songs that the choirs will be singing this week can be found below.

 If you have questions, please contact Director of Traditional Worship Angie Howard by clicking on her name.

The Drama Team ministry presents short skits to complement sermon topics and produces full length drama and musical plays for special occasions such as Christmas. In addition to recruiting actors, the team is also interested in finding backstage and technical help.

groups for special events throughout the year.  The group also attends Area 5
Handbell Musicians of America events including the spring conference each
year where concerts are enjoyed, educational classes are offered to increase
and refine their musical talents and participating in a large mass ring under
the direction of some of the finest handbell composers and directors.

God has a sense of humor and the puppet ministry likes to present this through songs and skits with a message from Him to the audience.  It is always about glorifying Him.
The puppeteers are busy Sept-May.  We go to all six care centers in Marysville and one in Plain City.  We perform here at FUMC for services and special events.  After our performances, we have the kids take their puppets and mingle with the residents at the care facilities.  It is a good experience for the kids and the residents love them.
It is a fun ministry to learn new skills hidden talents, and friendships while serving the Lord.  Practices are on Monday nights starting on in September and ending in May.  Practices are located in rooms 245, 246 from 7:00 - 8:00 pm. 
All 5th - 12th graders are welcome. 
Any questions can be directed to Marianne Birt at 937-642-4813 or email at himbirt@yahoo.com.
