May update

Happy MAY from your Music Ministry!

What a blessing was our Sunrise Service at the Sun Bowl on Easter Sunday, not to mention the innovative Sunday Brunch service at church afterwards! He is Risen, INDEED !

A huge THANK YOU to my team of musicians and technicians for putting in the extra rehearsal time (plus moving equipment to and from the Sun Bowl) to make all of our music for Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and two Easter Services so beautiful and emotional!

Please thank them when you see them:
Kira, Caryl, Craig, Beverly, Floyd, Greg, Tom, Robin, and Bill (the official page-turner outside).

Of course, we are already working on plans to make Mother’s Day and Memorial Day very special Sundays in May! Hope you’re able to attend all of the 10 AM services!

If you missed any of the Holy Week messages or music, you can find them under my name on YouTube, and of course on the church website!

I think my favorite song was “Of Tears and Sorrows”… “Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows” Isaiah 54:3

Alan Paulson
Minister of Music


We have a vibrant and talent-filled music program at United Church of Sun City

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.

Jubilee Bells

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.

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.

Special Music

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.
