It doesn’t matter if you prefer contemporary music or you need a weekly dose of organ music with choirs, Medford UMC has you covered! Come to worship and be inspired by our choirs and band. Sing along, be moved by the music and fully immerse yourself in worship. But don’t just come listen, we encourage you to join us.

Participation in the music program is one way to develop and grow a relationship with God.  Biblical and spiritual concepts are reinforced through music and it is a fun way to serve the church. Our musical groups support each other through fellowship and prayer and serve God through music.

Vocal Choirs

Medford UMC has four choirs with members of all ages. Check out the church calendar for the rehearsal schedule and join in at any time.

  • Junior Choir – 2nd through 6th graders (first graders are invited to join in the spring)
  • Youth Choir – 7th through 12th graders
  • Wesley Choir – adult, mixed voice choir
  • Garwood Choir – adult mixed voice choir

In addition to singing almost every Sunday during worship, our choirs perform special programs at Christmas, Easter and at the end of the program year. The Junior and Youth Choirs work together in the spring to present a musical based on a favorite Bible story.

For more information, please contact our Vocal Choir Director, Carol Reilly, through the church office.

Handbell Choirs

Bells have been ringing for over 25 years at Medford UMC. New ringers are always welcome, even those with no handbell experience. While the ability to read music is helpful, it is not required. Check out the church calendar for the rehearsal schedule.

  • Chime Choir – 2nd through 5th graders (first graders are invited to join after Christmas)
  • Youth Handbell Choir – 6th through 12th graders
  • Jubilation Ringers – adults, typically ring at 8:15 worship
  • Celebration Ringers – adults, typically ring at 11:00 worship

Each group rings approximately once a month but practices weekly during the program year (September – June). All ringers are invited to participate in a Christmas program and the adult ringers offer a special program in the spring as well.

For more information, please contact our Bell Choir Director, Barb Frame, through the church office.
