Welcome to the United Church of Sun City
Our chancel choir has approximately 20 to 30 singers, depending on the time of year, and our anthems vary from classical through contemporary in style.
The mission of our program is to provide music that enhances the liturgy and enables our congregation to pray twice through the music. When our organist first came she told our minister of music that her job was to "take the congregation to the throne of God every week."
Choir and handbell activities at United Church of Sun City are temporarily suspended due to COVID-19.
View recorded musical offerings on our Sermon Page.
Minister of Music Alan Paulson brings over 40 years of successful music director experience in Christian Churches, public schools, performance choirs and community colleges to our Church. Alan earned his Masters in Choral Music Conducting at ASU and continues expanding his trade by taking courses to maintain his certifications.
The church regularly hosts special music performances for the congregation. They range from concerts at the monthly ice cream socials, to the Palm Sunday and Christmas Cantatas, to a three-concert Chamber Music and continental breakfast concert series and more. We announce upcoming performances in the calendar and at the top of this page.
Our 3 Octave Handbell choir is called the Jubilee Bells. We play about 5 or 6 times throughout the year and occasionally take our bells on the road for special performances.
June 2021 update
Summer will bring some lighter music, smaller groups, special guest musicians, and a very “splashy” Fourth of July service, since it lands on a Sunday this year! Please invite your friends! Wear all of your red, white, and blue.
I hope you have enjoyed our “Piano Meditation” time by Floyd Ellison each week. If you don’t have a problem to bring to The Lord at that time, I’m sure, like me, you’ll think of some blessings to THANK HIM for!
If you’re lucky enough to go somewhere cooler for the summer, please check out our Sunday morning offerings online, on Facebook, and under my name on YouTube.
And invite a friend to come and try our CHOIR with you in September!
Making a joyful noise,
Minister of Music
United Church of Sun City
Greetings from our Music Ministry!
If you’ve been at our Sunday morning services or watching online, you know that God has certainly blessed me with talented coworkers, hasn’t he? (I was moved to tears WHILE I was singing “Here I Am, Lord” with Kira, Caryl, Craig, and Beverly!)
Some people in our congregation are very surprised that we only rehearse together on Sunday mornings, before the service begins!
