Music plays an important role in the worship of God at Madison UMC. It is our desire to celebrate the diverse musical gifts God has given each of us. We encourage people to develop and use their music gifts in sharing Christ’s message. Our ministry offers opportunity for children, youth and adults in developing and sharing their musical gifts in order to worship and serve at MUMC.
