Arlington United Methodist Church

AUMC shares in a variety of styles of worship ranging from Singing Seniors to Adult Choirs and Children’s Worship. 


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.


The Senior Choir

The joyful sounds of old church favorites fill the air as our SENIOR CHOIR celebrates God in song. Performances at local nursing homes and assisted living facilities are part of their commitment to reaching our community. All who wish to join are welcome.

Senior Choir: Marge Roddy, Director
Rehearsal time: Thursdays, 3-4 p.m.


The Celebration Singers

The CELEBRATION SINGERS are a talented group of ladies who embrace both traditional and gospel music in their repertoire. Their voices bring a touch of beauty and grace to worship. This group performs in church one Sunday a month. Ladies with previous musical experience would enjoy singing with this group.

Celebration Singers: Gavin Taylor, Director
Rehearsal time: Wednesdays, 7:30-8:30 p.m.

Entertainment is a minor part of what we do. We sing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and secular songs from the past for those with limited travel. Our singing generates joy and brings back good memories for our audience members. You can see everyone brighten up as we sing. After singing, we enjoy mingling with our audience. This adds attention and fellowship during our visits. It’s a privilege to be a part of this group. There’s wonderful camaraderie and fellowship among choir members. Participation brings joy to the hearts of choir members.
