Worship Arts & Music at Salina First

Through our Worship Arts & Music ministries at Salina First United Methodist Church, we seek to proclaim, celebrate, and extend God's love in Christ. In fellowship with one another, we lift up songs of hope, love, freedom, redemption, reconciliation, and praise unto God in our times of worship. We also often incorporate elements of drama, dance, and visual arts in our services to bring glory to God through the arts. We have several opportunities for children, youth, and adults to engage in our Music & Arts ministries at Salina First:

Chancel Choir
Our Chancel Choir sings Sunday mornings during our 8:25 service. Weekly rehearsals take place Wednesday evenings at 6:00 in the Choir Room. Music selected includes traditional music, with an emphasis on contemporary arrangements and compositions, as well as an annual Christmas Cantata. People of all ages are encouraged to join our positive, fun-loving group as we prepare for meaningful worship service.

Children’s Choir
During the school year, Children’s Choir meets from 9:40–10AM each Sunday morning followed by Sunday school. Kids in kindergarten through fifth grade meet in Room 300 to sing joyful songs of praise to our Lord. Each month we prepare a song to sing in worship. During the Christmas season our children lead worship with a Christmas musical. All children are welcome to join us and share the gift of music.
