Our purpose in the Music Ministry is to:
1. Draw the focus of our worship to God.
2. Encourage and uplift other Christians.
3. Serve as a witness through our music to all who listen.
4. Hold fast to the Biblical principles of God's Word.
5. Be a small group offering fellowship and encouragement to other members.
The McGaheysville United Methodist Church Chancel Choir, under the direction of Sydney Wilkins and accompanied by Judy Short, provides music each Sunday for the 11:00 am worship service at McGaheysville United Methodist Church. They have also appeared in public performances with the Nelson County Orchestra both at home and in Nellysford, Virginia. The choir sings music of varying styles including favorites from classic choral literature as well as gospel, jazz, and American patriotic and folk songs. Their mission is to bring the peace of Christ to the world through their joy of making music, as well as create an atmosphere within the choir where aspiring musicians can grow both individually and collectively.
