Music Ministry


Worship is the one activity we do on earth that will continue on for eternity. We seek to be those who worship wholeheartedly in spirit and in truth. At HFUMC, you will find a diverse community that worships through a variety of musical and artistic expressions. We invite you to join us!

The Choir at HFUMC 

The Choir at HFUMC serves every Sunday morning at the 8:15 AM Traditional Service in the Sanctuary. We also sing once per month at the 11:00 AM Traditional Service as well as special services throughout the year.

The Choir practices every Wednesday evening from 7:00 PM-8:30 PM in the Choir Room (Room 201). Our Wednesday night rehearsals are fun, energizing and spirit-filled. If you enjoy singing, this is your place to serve!

Our 11:00 AM Vocal Team sings most Sunday mornings at the 11:00 AM Traditional Service in the Sanctuary. Participants in the  Vocal Team are encouraged to rehearse with The Choir on Wednesday evenings.

Our combined choirs serve at special services throughout the year including Christmas Eve, Easter, Holy Week, and other services including our Spring Cantata, Christmas Extravaganza and July 4th Service).
