Joyful Noise Choir


Tammy Harper, Children's Choir Director


The mission of the Joyful Noise Choir Ministry at BFUMC is to lead children to become life-long worshipers of our Lord Jesus Christ. Each week children learn music fundamentals including how to sing properly, read music, and play instruments. Through hands-on activities, games, and songs, children learn what it means to worship God not just with music, but with every part of their lives.


Our Joyful Noise Choir performs a special Christmas program in December and other special performances throughout the year. 


We offer Joyful Noise Choir for children in Pre-K through 8th grade. Our choir meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:15 PM and your child may enroll at any time. If you have any questions or would like to enroll your child in choir, please contact Tammy Harper.





Our chancel choir meets at 7 pm on Tuesday evenings. You do not need to read music or have experience singing to join the choir! We do a variety of choral music including traditional choral anthems, hymn arrangements, contemporary praise songs, spirituals, gospel music and much more. We do a Christmas Cantata in December as well as an Easter Cantata each year. All are invited to come and join the fun as we praise God and help to lead the worship service.




We have 3 octaves of chimes and 3 octaves of handbells and perform throughout the year during special worship services.
