I will sing of the Lord's great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations (Psalm 89:1).
The Music Ministry at the First United Methodist Church of Sunnyvale is an enthusiastic, inclusive, and accessible community drawn to sing joyfully of God's glory on Earth. We are inclusive of all musical backgrounds and abilities, and welcome everyone into our spiritually-driven rehearsals.
Our Chancel Choir aims to lift the name and word of God through music that emboldens our spiritual commitment to our community and ourselves. With a choral library that spans all the way back to the founding of our church in 1898, we are blessed with a rich and wide variety of music to share with our congregation and community. We gladly welcome singers of all ages and backgrounds to join us for open rehearsals, services, and other special engagements.
Chancel Choir rehearses every Wednesday evening from 7:30–8:30 PM in the choir room.
Do you sing or play an instrument? Our Music Ministry is happy to provide many opportunities for soloists and guest artists to share their gifts and talents with our congregation. Whether you're a musical master or are a just starting out, the community of Sunnyvale UMC is grateful to celebrate the many accomplishments and achievements of within our church.
