Music Ministries

Music is one of our most important ministries. The Methodist church has always been famous for its hymns -- Charles Wesley is credited with composing thousands of them.

Minister of Music: Carol Mathew

All choirs rehearse on Wednesday evenings from September through May.

Chancel Choir


Our adult choir sings regularly for worship services and prepares major cantatas at Christmas and Palm Sunday. Choir members also take part in the Men's Sextet, the Women's Quartet, and the Chancel Ensemble.

Seniority Choir

This group is for middle and high school students. Many of our Seniority members also perform in their school choirs and have won distinction in Montana interscholastic singing events. The singers rehearse at 6:30 pm.

Children's Coed Choir Club

This is for children in grades 3-6 and performs during the main service. Most of the CCC singers graduate to Seniority. The group rehearses at 6:00 pm., right after the UM Kids Wednesday afternoon meeting.

Children of Hope


This is for our youngest singers, Pre-K-2nd Grade. Our musical director is also  a private music teacher, so the Children of Hope have a wonderful introduction to music skills, working together, and music as an element of worship. Children of Hope rehearses at 5:30 pm.

Other Music Ministry

We have been blessed with a talented congregation and many members who are not part of the choir provide instrumental music for special events. We have also had guest performers on several occasions. If you would like to make your music part of our service, please contact Carol through the church.
