Music ministry

Perry United Methodist Church has a long tradition of excellent music in worship, and the numerous and varied groups which participate are an integral part of this tradition. "Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully with a shout of joy." -- Psalm 33:3

The many gifted individuals and groups who are a part of our extensive music ministry richly enhance our worship experience. Through the glorious sounds of voices, instruments, and handbells, we celebrate the joyful bond between God and our community of faith. There is a place for you in the Perry United Methodist Music Ministry!
