Music Ministries

Concert May 2017


J. S. Bach once wrote “The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.” Earle Bidwell, SUMC’s Director of Music and Conductor considers this to be at the heart of Music Ministries.

South Church has a long and storied tradition of music speaking to the soul, dating back to the establishment of the Chancel Choir in 1925 and the installation a spectacular Austin  pipe organ.”  Over the years, the program has evolved  to include contemporary, as well as traditional music, large groups and small ensembles, a handbell choir  a praise band and  a  Southern Gospel Vocal ensemble.

Our faith filled music programs include:

  • Chancel Choir
  • Wesley Ringers Handbell
  • Wildfire Worship Team
  • Wesley Brothers Vocal Ensemble
