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."
All music 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.
I wish I had some real news for you on this beautiful February day, but we all have to be patient, and remember that life moves on God’s schedule, not our own!! Very soon we will be rehearsing together to sing God‘s praise at our live Sunday morning services! Hopefully we will have all had our vaccines by then, because I find it very exhausting to sing with a mask on!
If you will be joining choir for the first time, we rehearse on Sunday mornings at 8:30am and then sing for the church service at 10am so there’s never a need to make two trips to church for a separate rehearsal time!
I certainly hope you’ve enjoyed our solos and quartets accompanying Pastor Brady’s Sunday morning online sermons. You can actually watch all of them anytime you want on my YouTube channel!
Yours for a song,
Minister of Music
