Ministry through music is a centerpiece of worship and fellowship at Johns Creek United Methodist Church. Our music offerings are stylistically diverse and reflect our commitment to sharing the gospel of Christ through music in song, worship, fellowship and special events. It is our hope that everyone who participates in the Music Ministries program is challenged to grow in Christ and to experience God's unconditional love through the love of music that we all share. Whether you are a professional musician or just a music lover, we have a place for you!

J.O.Y. SINGERS: SENIOR ADULT CHOIR
A new choral group, The Joy Singers, is a ministry of the Johns Creek United Methodist Church. It provides an opportunity for anyone 55+ to be involved in the joy of singing. Through our own involvement, we plan to share the joy we have as a group, showing the love of God as we interact with our audiences. “Lifting voices in song remains a chief way that we praise God. Singing praises together unites minds and hearts, breath and voices – indeed the whole being – in praise.” (Hakyoung Cho Kim)
The Singers will sing throughout the community, sometimes for our senior adult group at JCUMC, sometimes for retirement communities, for assisted living residences and nursing facilities, and for other opportunities that may arise. Singing as senior citizens has been shown scientifically to be one of our best activities, offering a myriad of benefits. It increases our brain functionality, increases our self confidence, and helps to ensure a better quality of life through regular interaction with others. Taking deep breaths and letting the air out slowly builds your core. Stress tends to disappear as one is singing.
Official Rehearsal Schedule: Thursday, January 11 – Thursday March 8, from 10:30am-12:00pm

The Aeolian-Skinner that resides within Johns Creek UMC's sanctuary originated from Trinity Church Wall Street in New York City. The organ was thought to have suffered irreparable damage after the collapse of the Twin Towers in 2001, and was put in storage. It was later donated to Johns Creek UMC and restored. It was played for the first time in 15 years in August of 2016. Continue Reading...
