"When you sing, you pray twice." - commonly attributed to St. Augustine.
Ours is a singing church, a congregation that values creativity and an eclectic range of musical expressions. Those who wish to express their faith with voice or instruments will find welcome here and are encouraged to share their gifts ~ singing in small ensembles, composing, leading congregational singing, playing instrumental music in worship, or as soloists. We make a conscious effort to involve the many talented and generous people of this creativity-rich, musically-engaged congregation. Exploring our faith through a variety of musical expressions is central to worship at PSUMC, and we are indeed blessed.
We celebrate music in our worship through soloists and instrumentalists who participate as featured music leaders in our Sunday service. If you are interested in being part of our music ministry by leading music in-person or virtually, please contact us. We encourage both members and friends of PSUMC, near and far, to consider sharing their musical gifts and we appreciate all skill levels and styles of music.
Until March of 2020, we celebrated music in our worship through our dynamic 30+ voice Church Choir every September through June. The Church Choir was a source of fellowship at the heart of the church community, providing a place to harmonize with friends, learn new anthems, and sing old favorites. The Choir was led by Pam McAllister, who recently retired after 32 years of dedicated service as PSUMC’s Music Director. While the future might look different, our Church Choir remains a steadfast part of our community. Please check the Church weekly email newsletter for related updates and announcements.
