“…Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord”
Ephesians: 5:19

The Music Department at Sylvania First United Methodist Church actively seeks opportunities to share God’s love through music and song. The Department is blessed to currently have a Chancel Choir (SATB choir that sings during church services and for special events), a men’s performing ensemble, A Few Good Men, (a choir that sings throughout the region for services and special events), and a Handbell Choir.

We would love to have you join our music ministry!
