Music

We, the music ministry team at Wilmore Free Methodist Church, are glad you are part of our church family! We hope your participation in the life of our church will be made more joyous because of our fellowship in Christ.

As you well know, it is truly a joy and privilege to share in one of God’s great gifts—the combining of music and His word. At WFMC, we take seriously the major role that music fulfills in our church family worship times, in the nurture of true disciples, and in outreach to those who hunger for the Truth. Weekly, we reaffirm that each of us is a member of the church’s most significant choir, the congregation. We invite and encourage you to join with those around you singing from your heart in uninhibited praise to His glory.

For those of you who find music to be a specific means for service and growth within the Christian body, we offer many opportunities. Our graded choirs—from younger children to adults; small vocal and instrumental ensembles; solo music ministry; music leadership roles and accompanying opportunities—are available to minister to you, and to benefit through your participation.

Again, we welcome you! Please make yourself known to us , for we have no better way to get to know you! We would like to meet you and learn how we can best minister to you and through you.
