Music Ministry

First Methodist is a church that LOVES music! God has given humans so many ways to praise and worship and we celebrate those diverse ways to express and understand our faith. We have music opportunities for all ages, abilities, and styles. Take a look below and see where you might want to plug in.

  • Chancel Choir

    Being a part of a choir is a great way to participate in worship and also help lead others in worship. Whether you have a lot of experience singing or none at all, this is the choir for you! Led by Judy Green, you will be welcomed with open arms to sing, pray, have fun, and feel like you’re part of a special family. They rehearse on Wednesday nights at 7:00 and practice music for worship on Sundays, but they also do special choir programs for Christmas and Easter. Aside from Sunday, they meet and rehearse on Sunday mornings at 10:30 to prepare for worship. For more information about this ministry, please contact Judy Green at 575-441-7571, call or text. 

  • Praise Team

    Our Praise team is made up drums, guitars, bass guitar, keyboard, and a mix of female and male voices. If you’d like to try out and join, contact brother Robert at or 915-342-7500 (call or text) and he’d be happy work with you! We’re always looking for people share their gifts and serve with the praise team!

  • Jubilate Bell Choir

    Directed by Judy Green

    Jubilate Bell Choir began in the mid-1970s as a beginning bell choir to supply new ringers as needed to the Wesley Ringers, the original bell choir at First Methodist-Lovington.  Because of attrition, it eventually became necessary to merge the two and the name “Jubilate Bell Choir” was adopted.  Our primary function is to worship God through the music of the bells, whether in a traditional worship service or playing at community functions.  We currently have 14 ringers for five octaves of bells.  Our choice of music covers almost all types of church music from hymns and praise songs to the more classical settings.  We meet on Sunday afternoons from 5:00 pm-6:00 pm in the music room of the church.  Anyone interested in more information about the bell choir, including playing or substituting, can contact Judy Green, Director of Music, 575-396-3421.

  • Joyful Noise Children’s Choir (JNC)

    Directed By Deedra Terrell

    JNC is a group that consists of children ages 5 through grade 5. We meet on Wednesdays from 4:30-5:30. During the hour, we start off with a short Bible lesson and the kids have a quick snack. In the fall we work on songs that we sing in worship once a month and also on a Christmas musical that we present to the congregation in December. The musical consists of speaking parts, solos, and dancing! In the spring, starting in January, we work on handbell music along with continuing songs that we sing monthly in worship! JNC is for any child that loves Jesus and loves music! For any questions about the program you can contact our JNC director, Deedra Terrell, at 575-631-6115.
