Music is a vital part of the ministry and message of the Ely United Methodist Church. It is rich in tradition and reflects a diversity of styles. There is, of course, congregational singing, but also an active choir and occasionally special music as well. Our music contains important truths about our beliefs and our worship experience is enhanced by the musical expression of these beliefs. As singers and musicians, we are lifted up and united in our worship through our musical service.

"Sing lustily and with good courage."
from John Wesley's preface to Sacred Melody (1761)
