Celebration Singers

Christ United Methodist Church in Franklin, TN

Celebration Singers are the adult choir at Christ United Methodist Church. They will resume practice on Wednesdays at 6:30 in August, downstairs in the Choir Room, and all are welcome! While the quality of the choral singing is exceptional, our priority is not performance but connecting people to God through music. We do not wear robes, and we sit in the congregation instead of sitting in a choir loft. We are a part of, rather than apart from, the worshipping congregation. This practice also helps us to support the congregation’s song from within.

The music ministry at Christ United Methodist Church:

  • Praises God and helps the congregation experience the Living Christ through music in worship
  • Fosters growth as disciples and musicians by learning music that is challenging spiritually as well as musically
  • Nurtures and cares for all of God’s children — in the choir, in the congregation, in the world
  • Offers tremendous fun while doing all of the above!

The music in worship – anthems, hymns, responses, helps – are all chosen to help express the scripture for that day. We use many styles, ranging from chants and traditional choral music to gospel songs, contemporary worship songs, and African freedom music.

Anthems and major works sung recently include:

  • The Magnificat and The Gloria, John Rutter
  • The Messiah, Handel
  • Requiem, Gabriel Fauré
  • Witness, Jack Halloran
  • Welcome to Our World, Chris Rice
  • I Saw The Light, Hank Williams
  • Other anthems by John Rutter, Mark Miller, Pepper Chopin, and Bob Chilcott
