The music ministry of Prescott United Methodist Church is an exciting place to serve in God’s church. The music program is led by Jacob Gilbert, Director of Music Ministries. Jacob has been our Music Ministry Director since August, 2017. Under his direction, the music we use is some of the best being offered to churches and matches our abilities. We are excited and thankful for our wonderful choir rehearsal room and music library. We are delighted to have Jacob leading us.
Our pianist is Janet Moore, who gives her all being an intergral part of our music program. We would not be able to survive without her!
We also have three incredible A/V Techincians headed up by Paul Haines.
There are many opportunities to sing or play an instrument in the Music Ministries

This choir not only enjoys singing together, but it is a wonderful supportive group that often socializes together and shares ideas and life experiences.
Our Celebration choir sings several times a month at our 5:00 Saturday evening services. We sing a combination of spirituals and contemporary music and try to bring an exhilarated feeling to our choral presentations. We try to present music that is worshipful, yet inspiring and contemplative.
This 40 member group meets every Wednesday evening at 6:00 in the choir room. We enjoy each other's company and look forward to choir practices so that we can see our friends and sing for the glory of God.
