A Passionate Response to God’s Amazing Grace
The Music Ministry of Beulah United Methodist Church stretches from the adults singing in the Sanctuary Choir down to the Kindergartners in Music Makers who are just getting the hang of it. Our Hand bell program also spans the age ranges with children, youth, and adult bell choirs. The Praise Band enjoys Southern Gospel through Contemporary Praise, and host a special praise service one Friday night a month. Our children’s program provides musical and missional activities on Wednesday evenings at Music & Missions. A yearly Christmas Cantata is performed during Advent, and the children present a musical every Mother’s Day.
Children & Youth
Kidz Bells (Grades 3-5) Meets at 6:30pm on Wednesday evenings.
Music Makers (Grades K-2) Meets at 7:00pm on Wednesday evenings.
Voices of Praise (Grades 3-5) Meets at 7:00pm on Wednesday evenings.
Music & Mission
Our comprehensive program for children on Wednesday evenings with handbells (6:30-7:00pm), vocal choirs (7:00-7:30pm) and missions (7:30-7:45pm), emphasizes praise for God through music and service for God through missions.
The Missions segment of our program features age-appropriate games, crafts, and mission projects that are often hands-on. This year the group will focus on the theme, Through the Looking Glass, through filling Operation Christmas Child boxes, crafting Christmas cards for the local Veteran’s Hospital, and making crafts/packing supplies for our missionary family in Haiti.
In December, we will begin to prepare for our Children’s Musical, which is performed every year on Mother’s Day Sunday. If you have a child in the age ranges of K-5th grade, join us for this incredible program of music/missions every week.
