Music and arts

North Decatur UMC’s Worship and Arts Ministry creates worship, fellowship, encouragement, and outreach through an inclusive program of music and other worship arts. Worship at NDUMC includes expressions ancient and modern, challenging and simple, old and new. Our goal is to prepare music for worship that exalts Christ and transforms ourselves.

If you sing or play an instrument, we would love to have you join us. Please contact Sandra Kirton, our Director of Worship and Arts, for information on ways to participate.
