 Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands: Sing forth the honor of His name: make His praise glorious. Psalm 66: 1-2

 

The RRUMC Music program welcomes all who wish to please God by sharing their musical talents in His worship.

We adhere to John Wesley’s instructions for singing, especially instruction #7:

“Above all sing spiritually. Have an eye to God in every word you sing. Aim at pleasing him more than yourself, or any other creature. In order to do this attend strictly to the sense of what you sing, and see that your heart is not carried away with the sound, but offered to God continually; so shall your singing be such as the Lord will approve here, and reward you when he cometh in the clouds of heaven.”


 

Our choir, musicians, and media team praise the Lord, enhance the congregation’s worship and also love and support each other as we strive to follow God’s leading for our lives. We are blessed by and grow from learning music together that carries messages for our individual spiritual journeys. We take turns presenting inspirational devotionals to our group at the end of each rehearsal.

We enjoy all kinds of music, from old traditional hymns and Southern Gospel to the latest praise worship. We present upbeat music in rock, jazz, and gospel styles as well as pretty ballads, bluegrass, and Southern Gospel. We believe variety in worship keeps services fresh.

In addition to providing music for each worship service, we present special music programs yearly. The special services often include narrators, actors, support personnel, and extra musicians from the church and community.

We have ad hoc small ensembles, both vocal and instrumental that provide worship music. The string band performs traditional and folk pieces, guitar groups play country and pop styles, and various vocal groups perform a gamut of styles.

Several choir members volunteer to organize our printed music library, lead music groups, keep the contact list, and support ill or bereaved members and their families. 

If you sing, play any type of instrument, or can contribute to the audio or visual aspects of worship, please consider joining us. Some of our members who had not sung in church before, some had never been in a choir, some have never read music, and some bring high levels of formal music experience and education. Singers need to be able to carry a tune and be willing to learn. It does not matter if your voice is not as fine as it once was…we find that in the choir, our collective wisdom and experience along with God’s blessing overcomes our physical limitations. Come…we will welcome and support you in your musical efforts and spiritual growth. We rehearse on Wednesdays; see our church calendar for rehearsal times.


Oh sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things!  Psalm 98:1

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
 
   break forth into joyous song and sing praises!

Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,

    with the lyre and the sound of melody!

With trumpets and the sound of the horn

    make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!  Psalm 98:4-6
