Music ministry of Katy First United Methodist Church
At our music ministry, we believe in the power of music to foster meaningful connections. Beyond the melodies and harmonies, we value building strong relationships - with each other, with God, and with the music that stirs our souls. Join us as we come together to worship, praise, and find spiritual inspiration through the universal language of music. Together, we create an atmosphere of harmony and unity, nurturing our faith and enriching our lives. Come, be a part of this incredible journey where music becomes a bridge to deeper connections and a closer relationship with the Divine. Led by our incomparable Director, Barry Barrios, our music ministry proudly features the extraordinary vocalist and pianist Tracey Patterson, as well as the exceptional organist Lonnie Tanner, in addition to our other musical talents.
Our Chancel Choir is a group of talented and passionate individuals who gather for rehearsals every Wednesday at 7 PM in the Choir Room. They showcase their musical gifts and talents during the 11:00 AM worship service, enriching the worship experience for the congregation.

Choir trips offer opportunities for our members to bond, explore new places, and share their musical talents beyond the church walls. Additionally, our music and art camps provide enriching experiences for individuals of all ages to learn, grow, and express themselves creatively.

The Celebration Singers Youth Choir has a long, rich tradition here at First United Methodist Church. The choir is open to all 6th - 12th graders and meets each Sunday during the school year for rehearsal. Our youth are active participants in Sunday worship services throughout the year. Each year the youth embark on a fall retreat full of fun, fellowship and worship and each summer our students journey on a week-long choir tour. During the Christmas season our youth entertain us with a coffee-house style night of great performances and along with our Celebration Singers alumni lead us in worship on Christmas Eve. Each May they host events to raise money for their annual tour. Rehearsals are Sunday afternoons, AT 4:30 PM.
