Music Ministry

First UMC’s Music Ministry extends as far as the ear can hear with the Sanctuary Choir and the King’s Ringers Handbell Choir. In addition to these two choirs, the Music Ministry works to create opportunities for church and community members to serve the Lord through music.

The King’s Ringers Handbell Choir meets on Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:00pm and participates in worship once a month. The First Church Sanctuary Choir participates in worship three Sundays a month  and rehearses on Thursday evenings September through May from 7:30-8:30 p.m. in the lower level of the church. NO audition is required for either of these choirs.

Erin Sullivan is the director of the First UMC Sanctuary Choir, a position she has held for over 15 years. Erin is also one of the middle school chorus teachers at Massillon Intermediate/Middle School.

Jordan Provost is the director of the First UMC King’s Ringers Handbell Choir. Jordan is the middle school chorus/high school band director at Carrollton Schools. Jordan is also the organist/pianist and choir accompanist at First UMC of Massillon.

Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
