All youth in grades 7-12 are invited to participate in the activities of DARING, the youth music program at FUMC Allen. We offer three areas of music ministry for our youth and all are involved in leading worship, producing a musical, and going on a summer choir tour.
We are very excited to welcome our new church accompanist, Josh Vigran, to the DARING program. He will be working with Rev. Rusty King on what promises to be a very exciting year.
- The DARING choir is presenting the musical “Godspell” this year. The music of “Godspell” is varied, timeless, and extremely well crafted. The choir meets on Sundays from 4:00pm-5:00pm in the choir room (CLC202).
- The DARING orchestra, under the direction of James Miller, plays in worship on Sunday mornings and accompanies the choir for the summer musical production. These musicians meet Sunday afternoons in CLC 202 from 3:00pm-4:00pm.
- DARING tech supports not only DARING youth choir but help in other tech concerns, such as the children’s spring musical and the youth summer musical. Tech support meets twice a month under the leadership of Greg and Melinda Cotton, who will set the training times based on the team’s schedule.
If you are interested in any of the three areas of FUMC Allen’s youth music ministry program, contact Rev. Rusty King, 972.727.8261, x123.
