MUSIC AT CUMC

God has blessed each one of us with different gifts and talents, but it is up to us to develop and use those gifts in His name. The purpose of the Music + Worship Arts Ministry at Collierville UMC is to help anyone explore, develop, and use their talents to lead others in worship. Whether through music, drama, dance, or visual art, there is a place for you.

SNAP Kids Music (Kindergarten-5th Grade)
This ministry gives kids the opportunity to explore, develop, and share their gifts and talents as they grow deeper in their relationship with Christ. Each semester, we work on a musical to present to the congregation and community.

“They were all under the direction of their father for the music in the house of the Lord with cymbals, harps, and lyres for the service of the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman were under the order of the king. They and their kindred, who were trained in singing to the Lord, all of whom were skillful, numbered 288.” – 1 Chronicles 25:6-7
