Sun Lakes United Methodist Church is very proud of our Music Ministry under the direction of Cris Evans, Music Director.
Through our music we create an atmosphere that helps worshipers experience the moving of the spirit, hearing what God has to say to us and sensing where He will lead.
Much of what we think about God comes from the music we hear and sing. The texts of our music come from various sources (scriptures, sacred poetry and prose, or formal liturgy). The congregation entrusts us to be a significant force that shapes and enhances their worship experience. As we fulfill our responsibilities as a choir, we too are inspired and moved by God.
Membership in our choir assumes a willingness and desire to further our own musical education. Along with singing during Sunday worship services, the choir prepares special music for Veteran’s Day, Christmas Eve, Good Friday, Palm Sunday and Easter to share with the congregation and the community. The choir prepares a larger choral work with an instrumental ensemble each year for Christmas.
Our choir is very much a smaller family within the greater Church community. We are a wonderful mixture of personalities. We enjoy each other’s company and value the “fun” as an important ingredient with the “hard work”.
There are no auditions for membership – all that is needed is a pleasant singing voice, a desire to learn good music, and the commitment to attend rehearsals on a regular basis. Choir members wear robes during the months we have two services, November through May.
