Music Ministry

The Ministry of Music, through its adult, children’s, and youth choirs is an integral part of the worship and discipleship ministry of First United Methodist Church. Every Sunday worshipers get to enjoy music played on the largest pipe organ in San Diego County.  Every second Wednesday of the month, 45-min. free organ concerts, "Midday Pipes", are offered in the sanctuary or to enjoy live-streamed on YouTube. The ministry also sponsors the popular Cultural Events Music Series, community concerts and guest performances by nationally recognized artists and groups.
