Music

God has placed a song in each of our hearts, and the Music Ministry at Littleton UMC encourages and nurtures musicians of all ages and experience levels to praise God with joyful sounds.


Whether you are interested in singing or playing an instrument yourself, have a youngster who wants to learn about music and worship, or even if you are just a part of the congregational choir each week, you have a place in the musical life of our church.


Please contact me for more information about music at Littleton United Methodist Church. DavidKates@littletonumc.org
