Music Ministry at Lea Joyner

The Music Ministry at Lea Joyner is very exciting. We offer both traditional and contemporary music with programs for adults, senior adults, youth and children. The most important thing about the music ministry at Lea Joyner is the fact that we enjoy praising the Lord in song! All of our groups are volunteer-based and our prime focus is to worship God and have a good time while doing it. In the history of Lea Joyner Memorial United Methodist Church, music has always played a very important role in worship and special events. It doesn’t matter how old you are or what type of music you like, there is a place for you at Lea Joyner Church in the music ministry.


Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir has been in existence since the church was founded. We practice every Wednesday night at 6 p.m. We enjoy singing a wide variety of music: classical, gospel, and praise & worship. The Chancel Choir is an all-volunteer choir, so we encourage anyone who has a love for music to join.
