At FUMC Murfreesboro
The worship of God is our central focus, with men women, youth and children from all walks of life sharing their musical talents in worship each week.
We have two rehearsal options, Sundays at 4:00 p.m. and Wednesdays at 7:15 p.m. and two service options, Sundays at 8:30 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. for adult choir. The choirs for both traditional services sing the same selections, so you are able to choose the rehearsal and service times that best suit you. There is no audition required to participate in these groups. A basic knowledge of music reading is very helpful, but you can learn to read or improve your reading skills during choir rehearsals.
A nursery is provided by request whenever the choir meets.
Contact Elliott Peterson at the church office at 615-893-1322.
Rehearsals are 5:00 p.m. Sunday evenings. All youth in 7th and 12th grade are invited to join the Youth Choir. Members of this choir lead the music in worship once per month. Please come on Sundays during the school year at 5:00 pm.
We also have a youth handbell choir that rehearses Sunday afternoons at 4:15 pm in balcony of the sanctuary. Contact Elliott Peterson for more information.

Meets from 4:30-5:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary Balcony. Available to grades 4, 5, and 6. Please contact Elliott Peterson at the church or at E-mail if you are interested in handbells.
Each season, we look for new bell ringers to fill in the ranks and for alternates to substitute for regular ringers at rehearsals and performances. We welcome new ringers from the congregation and from the community.
The Sanctuary Ringers
Note: We currently have openings for two adult handbell ringers in our Sanctuary Ringers handbell choir. If you have played an instrument in the past or have experience reading music you will be in great shape to begin ringing handbells. The rehearsals are from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. Sunday evenings and the group plays for worship one time per month. Please contact Kristi Shamburger by phone at 260-249-5740 or by email at email@example.com for more information.
