Joyful Noise Instrumental Ensemble

If you enjoy playing an instrument - anything from an electric guitar to a flute or violin, we would love to have you join the Joyful Noise group!  This instrumental choir supports primarily the first and third services at First United Methodist Church.  We practice once a week and often perform along with the Handbell choir and Chancel choir.    All are welcome!! 

We practice weekly in the Choir Room.  The schedule is as follows:

Tuesdays @ 6:30 on 1st/3rd/5th weeks of the month

Mondays @ 6:30 on 2nd/4th weeks of the month.
