Welcome to FMUMC's Music Ministry

Greetings!
My name is Jan Call, and it is my privilege to direct the Music Ministry at Flower Mound UMC. Music brings beauty, excitement and inspiration to worship.  If you want to honor God by sharing your musical gifts and are looking for a place to connect with others who do the same, we invite you to join us, and be part of a loving community who cares for one another through all of life's ups and downs.  Take a minute to look over the music ministry opportunities and pray about where God might be calling you to use your gift.



Why We Sing

The universal language of music is never more meaningful, sincere, or relevant as when it is offered in praise and thanksgiving to God. Our choirs sing a wide variety of music, including choral classics by the masters, spirituals and gospel music, contemporary music anthems, Taize meditations and other global music.

At Flower Mound UMC, MUSIC really is a ministry. Not only can you participate in rounding out our worship services, but there's no better way to get to know other people in the congregation than by gathering with them each week to practice.

"Cantate Domini" Youth Choir

'Cantate Domini' Youth Choir is made up of youth, grades 6-12, who sing to make the world a better place; to bring beauty to a world that's full of dissonance, and to bring hope, justice and caring to those in need.  They sing a wide variety of music, from classical to contemporary Christian, as well as global music.  Occasionally they play drums, Orff xylem or handbells.  This group sings in worship, and takes their music out into the world to share with others.  In the early Spring, they host a fellowship fundraiser in the church called "Soul Cup."

Rehearsals are Sundays at 3 pm, currently in the sanctuary.

Children learn about the Christian year, and songs help to internalize biblical truths about God’s love and care for them.

We currently meet the 4th Sunday of the month at 2 pm.
