Chapel Choir

Choirs have begun!

We had an exciting children's choirs first rehearsal and registration last Wednesday, Sept. 12th. With the Sweet Repeat set up going on we had registation in the Open Door. It was fun to see so many faces full of surprise and wonder at our inviting, spacious, modern Open Door. Maybe we should have registration in there every year so we can show off the space available to our future junior high and high school youth!  Seventy-six children have been registered to sing in our choirs! Woo-hoo!

Housing Needed for Visiting Choirs

FUMC will be hosting two youth choirs this summer and host families will be needed for both. Chapel Choir members have enjoyed their experiences with host families during tour over the years, so now it's our turn to provide some hospitality.

The Celebration Singers and Ringers from Church of the Saviour UMC in Cincinatti will present a concert on Sunday, June 10. Overnight housing will be needed that evening for approximately 41 youth and 8 adults.

The Sonshine Choir from Brentwood (TN) UMC will be here Saturday, July 14. They will present a concert that evening and then sing at both worship services the following morning. Housing will be needed for approximately 100 youth.

We are currently looking for housing for the Celebration Singers and Ringers on June 10. If you have available beds please contact Katie Bartholomew or Don Dunham.

Youth InTent: Tent Rentals

Youth In TentFor nearly two decades, our Youth InTent program has served our church and community by renting out tents, tables and chairs for graduation, birthday, anniversary and other summer celebrations, as well as neighborhood block parties, weddings and wedding receptions.

DGFUMC youth take care of delivery, set-up and take-down. In return they receive credit toward mission and choir trips.

Our prices are competitive with commercial vendors and benefit a wonderful program. Our Youth InTent program is the largest fundraiser for our youth program and helps fund our Chapel Choir annual choir tour.

For prices and information please see the Youth InTent Reservation Contract at the link below. Feel free to contact Don Dunham with any questions.
