MUSIC & WORSHIP ARTS
We sing, fellowship, give, read scripture and hear the teaching of our pastor.

At China Spring United Methodist Church, worship is about encountering God through the many manifestations of the Spirit. We sing, fellowship, give, read scripture and hear the teaching of our pastor. The entire church family has the opportunity to participate in worship as they are willing and able. Some sing in our choir or share their musical gifts as soloists, either vocal or instrumental. Others prepare special presentations for our children each week, sometimes through the medium of puppetry. Individuals gifted in the visual arts prepare special sanctuary settings or hang our seasonal vestments.
