The Chancel Choir is a group of dedicated singers who enjoy each other's company and singing in four-part harmony. Under the direction of Todd Gorski, the Chancel Choir sings at every 10:00 service from September through June. The group consists of a variety of singers who come from Bethel and surrounding towns. Some are students, some are working professionals, and some are enjoying retirement. Many of our choir members are musicians who perform and/or teach music in the area. BUMC has been blessed with several outstanding choir directors in its history who have all contributed to the extensive, 1000+ volume choir library that spans decades of sacred music from classical to contemporary. Rehearsals take place on Thursday evenings from 7:30-9:00 and on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:00, in the choir room. New members are always welcome!

The Children's Choir is a group of elementary and middle schoolers who are also part of BUMC's FUSION Kids' Club, which meets on Wednesdays after school. Children take the bus to the church and are given time to do homework before enjoying a fun mix of game time, participating in community service projects, and finally, singing in Children's Choir. Rehearsals will take place from 5:00-5:30 each Wednesday. There is no minimum age to join, however children should have the maturity and patience to sit through a 30-minute choir rehearsal. The Children's Choir sings each month at the Family Service (the third 10:00 service of every month) since that service is geared toward children and their families. New children are always welcome!Contact Todd Gorski, Director of Music, for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org or 203.743.6835.
