Practices on Thursday evenings at 6pm. This group plays each Sunday at 11am in the Contemporary Worship Service. Members should be able to read from a standard chord chart and be proficient musicians, and be self-motivated to continue to learn new repertoire. Please let Nikki know if you are interested in auditioning.

adult Handbell choir
The handbell choir rehearsals are Wednesdays from 5:45pm-6:30pm in the Choir Room from September through April. We play in services about once every 6-8 weeks. We range in skill levels from beginner to advanced, and we always have room for another ringer! Contact Nikki Metzger Skidmore for more info.
Rehearsals are on Wednesdays at 6:45p in the Choir Room. Our repertoire spans the ages from Baroque to Modern Choral literature for church. If people ever make comments to you about how they enjoyed sitting near you and hearing you sing… you should consider joining the choir.
We often have opportunity to incorporate strings, wind, brass and percussion instruments in our traditional worship. If you have experience and are interested in exploring the possibility of playing in this service, please contact Nikki right away!
There are several different ways you can get involved in serving with AUMC Kids!
Serve our littlest members by signing up for our nursery rotation! One Sunday a month from 8:30 – 11:30, you will have the opportunity to play with, read to, and care for the sweet babies in our nursery.
We teach our children the importance of serving others, and what better way to model Jesus’ servant heart than by joining us in Sunday School? Our children need adult role models like you who will help out in Sunday School – sometimes all it takes to grow in relationship with others is simply being present. Please contact Brittney Saffel if you are interested in serving our children in Sunday School.
Sunday nights are always high-energy and a lot of fun! We cook, we make art, we perform science experiments, and more! Come join us.
