Music & Arts
God has blessed each one of us with different gifts and talents, but it is up to us to develop and use those gifts in His name. The purpose of the Music + Worship Arts Ministry at Collierville UMC is to help children, youth, and adults explore, develop, and use their talents to lead others in worship. Whether through music, drama, dance, or visual art, there is a place for you. We would love to have you join us!

No audition is necessary, but a basic understanding of music is very helpful. Childcare is available upon request.

We strive for excellence in the use of production arts to glorify God and to insure that people see and hear the components that reinforce messages. By using these talents, we promote community and fellowship among those with similar interests in our church body. In today's high-tech society, the church is finding itself with more equipment to utilize for the glory of God. From sound and lighting to video production and computer graphics, this crew works hard behind the scene to keep everything running smoothly.
