Worship & Music
Nicholasville UMC has a number of opportunities for members to get involved in music ministry. If you are a musician or vocalist and are interested in participating in NUMC music, please contact the appropriate group leader.
Contemporary Worship Band
The Contemporary Worship Band serves as the worship leading team for the 9:30 Contemporary service. The band leads worship through modern music from artists such as Hillsong, Jesus Culture, Elevation Band, Gungor, Tim Hughes, and Chris Tomlin, to name a few. The band also leads through modern arrangements of classic hymns, such as O For a Thousand Tongues, O Worship the King, My Hope is Built, and Be Thou My Vision. If you are a musician and interested in serving in the NUMC Contemporary Worship Band, please contact the Director of Worship, Kevin Cook.
The Chancel Choir sings every Sunday at the 11:00 Traditional service. Beyond leading hymn singing, the Chancel Choir regularly performs special anthems for services. If you are interested in serving in the NUMC Chancel Choir, please contact the Choir Director, Debbie Mallory.
At both the 8:15 and 11:00 Traditional services, a special music anthem is offered every week. These special performances vary between Chancel Choir, Handbell Choir, solos and small ensembles. If you are a musician and interested in sharing your gifts and talents with the NUMC community, we’d love to hear from you. Contact either Debbie Mallory or Kevin Cook.
Each December, the Choir prepares a special Christmas Choir to perform for the church in place of a sermon for that week. Members of the Chancel Choir are joined by several others from the community to form a larger choir for this special event. Rehearsals for the Christmas Cantata will begin in October. If you are interested in participating in this unique opportunity, contact Debbie Mallory.
Technology (Audio / Video)
NUMC is always looking for people who are trained in audio production and video presentation to serve on our Tech Team. These individuals serve as audio engineers for services and band rehearsals, MediaShout service builders, and run MediaShout slides during services. If you have experience with either live audio or MediaShout, or if you have a mind for technology and are interesting in learning and serving in this area, contact Kevin Cook.
