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.

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.
November 2021 update
From our Music Ministry department:
All members of our Praise Team Quartet are back from vacations and our CHOIR season has officially begun! Halleluiah, God is good!!
We’re planning to debut our choir on Sunday, November 14, as when we celebrate our veterans!
There’s always ‘room in the choir’ for you… even with social distancing . Please come and give us a try; you’re sure to make some fun new friends, and you’ll certainly experience the JOY that comes from raising our voices to praise and worship our God together. You don’t even need to make a special trip to church… we rehearse on Sunday mornings, 8:30 till about 9:45, so we’re all ready to attend the service at 10am!
Our Praise Team and I say a huge THANK YOU for all the kind words, encouragement and applause you’ve given us…even a standing ovation on Broadway Music Sunday!
Singing HIS Praise,
Minister of Music
