Hands In MOTION [H.I.M.] Puppet Ministry

God has a sense of humor and the puppet ministry likes to present this through songs and skits with a message from Him to the audience.  It is always about glorifying Him. We share at FUMC for services and special events.

 


The puppeteers are busy Sept-May.  The group visit all six care centers in Marysville and one in Plain City.    After our performances, we have the kids take their puppets and mingle with the residents at the care facilities.  It is a good experience for the kids and the residents love them.

 

It is a fun ministry to learn new skills hidden talents, and friendships while serving the Lord.  Practices are on Monday nights Sept-May.  Practices are located in rooms 245 and 246 from 7:00-8:00 pm. All 5th - 12th graders are welcome.

Joyful Noise

If you enjoy playing an instrument - a flute, a violin, a trumpet - we would love to have you join the Joyful Noise wind ensemble!  This instrumental choir supports primarily traditional services at First United Methodist Church.  We also support large choral works and cantatas throughout the year, so even if you worship at the Contemporary worship on Sunday mornings, there is an opportunity to play in this group!   


During normal times, practice occurs weekly in the Choir Room on Mondays at 6:30-8:00 pm.      At this time the group continues to participate in worship in small ensembles, as well as virtually.  Stay tuned for updates to this and other worship performing arts groups.
