Arlington United Methodist Church

Adult Music

The Chancel Choir

The CHANCEL CHOIR leads the congregation in musical worship each Sunday. The choir performs a wide variety of music, from spirituals to gospel favorites to traditional sacred works. Special presentations are given by this group during the Easter and Christmas seasons. A weekend retreat in the fall gives the choir an opportunity to focus on musicianship and enjoy the company of their fellow singers. While musical talent is abundant in this group, the only requirement for membership is a desire to glorify God through song.

Chancel Choir: Gavin Taylor, Director of Music
Rehearsal time: Thursdays, 7:15-8:30 p.m.
