Youth Handbells ringing during Sunday Worship Service

There are several ways you can share/learn a variety of musical talents here at Genesis UMC.  The Youth enjoy praising God and making a joyful noise!  See below for opportunities to get involved in Genesis’ wonderful music ministry.

Jubilation Youth Handbells

This handbell group is for Children and Youth grades 4th – 12th.  This group rings during various Sunday services and at special Youth events.  Rehearsals are from 4:15 – 5:00 pm on Sunday afternoons with Mary Pearce.

Genesis Instrumental Ensemble

We invite our many talented musicians who play woodwind, brass, string or percussion instruments to band together to create an ensemble that will participate in our worship services from time to time. Rehearsals are right after the 11:20 am service on Sundays. If interested, please email your name, contact information, instrument, and general level of playing to Marla so she can prepare arrangements with proper instrumentation.  At least 2 years of middle school band experience is needed to play.

Other opportunities

We are always looking for ways for our talented group of youth to share their gifts with us and others.  We have youth who play during our Sunday morning services, assist in the Alive@9 Praise team, perform for our local retirement communities, and share during our annual BBQ and other musical events.

For information about any of our music opportunities, contact Marla Ham at
