Music Ministry

The Ministry of Music, through its adult, children’s, and youth choirs is an integral part of the worship and discipleship ministry of First United Methodist Church. Every Sunday worshipers get to enjoy music played on the largest pipe organ in San Diego County. The ministry also sponsors the popular Cultural Events Music Series, community concerts and guest performances by nationally recognized artists and groups.

If you are new to San Diego or First Church, we extend a cordial invitation for you and/or your family to consider joining one of our choirs. There are no auditions. Please follow the links below for further information.
