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.
September 2021 update
Greetings from your Music Ministry!
We’ve had a wonderful month of Worship-filled Music, beginning on August first with absolutely beautiful solo “Pie Jesu” by our talented guest soloist, SunJoo Lee! (If you missed it, find it on YouTube). And I’m sure you’ve been blessed and impressed with the addition of our summer alto, Kendra Goodenberger; an incredibly talented 16 year old!
We are still hoping to begin our CHOIR season sometime in September… depending on the ruling of the CDC and the recommendation of our own Safety Team. We will probably have a couple of Sunday 8:30 am rehearsals before we actually sing at a church service.
RETURNING MEMBERS AND those of you who are interested in joining our choir, please email me or text me soon so we can arrange safe spacing of chairs, etc. I’m hoping for a bigger and better choir experience than we’ve ever had, because I’ve already ordered our Christmas Cantata! Spread the word! Invite your friends!
For His Glory,
Minister of Music
