Music/Dance at Erwin First United Methodist ChurchMake a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Psalm 100:1-2

There are lots of ways to make a joyful noise at Erwin First! Sing in our Choir, perform with our Praise Band or play in our Hand Bell Choir (a great option for people new to music). Some Erwin First members participate in all three!

Syracuse United Methodist ChurchIf you’d rather dance than make music, we’re welcoming new people in our Sacred Movements Dance ministry, too.

We also occasionally host guest performers like the Hope for Africa Children’s ChoirMandala, a Philadelphia-based, devotional band with Indian, Turkish and Celtic influences; the world-famous Watoto Children’s Choir; and acclaimed Christian singer/songwriter Ginny Owens.

We also have a really cool Casavant Freres Organ.
