Music Ministries

Music is an integral part of our Christian faith. And because it is so important to praise God in song, we offer opportunities for children, youth and adults to grow and share their gifts with this congregation and the Annandale community. No matter your skill level or ability, there is a place for you to share your gifts in our music ministry. I hope that you will take a moment to find an ensemble in which to share your talents here at Annandale UMC.

God’s Peace,
