Manchester United Methodist Church has a long standing history of music and the worship arts. Our Children’s Choirs help them experience the joy of music and the satisfaction of praising God as they serve in cultivating their God-given talents in ministering to our congregation and the community through music.

Our Children’s Choir Mission is to provide an engaging environment for children that encourages musical, spiritual & personal growth through education, fellowship, & outreach.
