Music and Arts Ministry


We are blessed at Weddington United Methodist Church with so many different musical groups and talents. Come and join us to praise and pray to our Lord through singing psalms, hymns, spiritual songs, and playing instruments. We welcome you with your passion, enthusiasm, and talents.


Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir, a SATB choir, leads music every Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. at the Traditional Service in the Sanctuary. It also sings special services during the year (Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter).

The Choir rehearses every Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Choir Room. We are accepting NEW MEMBERS!

Beginning August 11, all are invited to sing in the adult Chancel Choir. Rehearsal will be on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Choir Room. Join us as we begin learning Christmas music. If you can carry a tune – we’ll be your strength and song. The more you sing, the better you get and there is strength in numbers. Click here to register. Contact Rob Ridgell for more information.

Praise & Worship Team

The Praise and Worship team serves every Sunday at the 9:30 and 10:10 services.

A group formed by instrumentalists and singers leads a casual worship service where people gather to meet and praise to our Lord in a unique setting. Acoustic Praise and Worship practices every Tuesday evening from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the Youth Center. If you like a blended musical experience and want to join us, this is your place to serve!
