Music & Arts
Music & Art at Linworth UMC
We believe that music and the arts have the power to inspire, uplift, and connect us with each other and with the divine. We value and celebrate the diverse range of musical and artistic expressions that enrich our worship services and enhance our spiritual lives. From traditional hymns to contemporary praise songs, from liturgical dance to visual arts, we believe that each form of artistic expression has its own unique way of expressing the beauty and wonder of God’s love.
We are committed to fostering a creative and collaborative environment where artists of all kinds can use their gifts and talents to serve and enrich our community. Whether you are an experienced musician or artist or just starting to explore your creative side, we invite you to join us and share your gifts with our community.
