Praise the Lord! Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of the faithful. Psalm 149:1
Our First United Methodist Chancel Choir is not a large choir, but our Lord provides us with anthems that will touch your hearts and will bring you a meaningful message every Sunday. It is our goal to bring the light of the Lord to everyone who hears our music, and we encourage anyone who would like to join us in our ministry through music, to please come and join our choir. There are no auditions, everyone is welcome. The only requirement is that you have to love to sing for the Lord!!!
The Chancel Choir practices are at 7:00 on Wednesday evenings.
The choir does not meet in the summer.
Praising Our Risen Lord!!
Our bell choir plays about once a month during our Sunday morning worship. We also occasionally play at local nursing homes and retirement homes.
We would like to encourage all of our wonderful and talented regular members, as well as anyone who else who is interested in this joyous bell music, to join us as we continue to be part of the important music ministry of the church!
No ringing experience is necessary, but it is helpful if you can read music.
Join us for practice in the Music/Library room at church (230 N.10th St.) on Wednesdays at 5 p.m. The bell choir does not meet in the summer.
Please join us as we praise God with beautiful bell music!

Our beautiful pipe organ is a fine gift to Klamath Falls.
We have hosted several recent community concerts featuring the church’s pipe organ.
We plan more community concerts in the future.
Our organist, Pat Harris, is offering organ classes or individual organ lessons to interested pianists in the church and community free of charge so that others can enjoy playing our wonderful instrument.
Organ Repair and Upgrade:
During 2013 our pipe organ was rebuilt by Richard Bond Pipe Organ Company. The very small existing pipe organ which came from a man’s house was turned into a full 16-rank church organ. Usable pipes from the old organ were utilized while new and larger ranks of pipes were added from various sources:
- The principal pipes came from Germany
- Our beautiful oboe rank of pipes came from a dismantled 1920 pipe organ in Walla Walla, Washington
- A new solid-state electrical system was also installed, replacing the 1958 system.
The church’s rebuilt pipe organ features versatile and gorgeous sounds. A pipe organ’s sounds are air-driven and reverberate throughout a church. The high oak ceilings of the Methodist Church and hardwood floors also help circulate the sounds.
