Music Ministries

Newburg UMC’s worship arts ministry is committed to enhancing our worship of God by pursuing the highest quality of experiences. With this our primary goal, we serve a variety of needs with our ministry. Our worship arts "season" runs from Labor Day until Memorial Day. Also important is the fellowship we share as they contribute toward our feelings of Christian community. For more information on any of the listed ministries, contact our music staff.
