Worship & Music
Our Music Ministry is for singers and instrumentalists who have a deep desire to express praise and adoration to the Lord through song. We seek to “magnify the greatness of God in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit by skillfully combining God’s Word with music, thereby motivating the gathered church to proclaim the Gospel, to cherish God’s presence, and to live for God’s glory.” (Bob Kauflin in Worship Matters) Those who are called to this ministry are gifted in helping others enter into God’s presence through modeling what it means to give one’s whole self in worship. Participation includes everything from an occasional solo in church to a weekly rehearsal.
- Heavenbound Choir faithfully leads the congregation through music in worship at the “Arise & Shine” and “Heritage” worship services at 8:20 and 11:00 on Sunday morning. We are a group of dedicated disciples who are actively involved in using our gifts and talents as tools to build the body of Christ. Our ultimate goal is to grow both spiritually and musically. We rehearse Wednesday evenings from 7:15-8:45. Please consider joining us! For information about the choir, contact Sara Ledford.

In addition to ringing in Worship, the handbell ministry offers an outreach ministry that includes sharing our love of music in nursing homes, in other churches, and in handbell workshops and festivals. The handbell ministry at FUMC of Owasso participates in at least one event outside of worship almost every month.Learn more about the handbell ministry →
Audio/video ministries bring you the sights and sounds of worship. Our audio/video ministries exist to enhance our worship experience. The people who serve in this area work to make sure that video images can be seen in worship as well as on the web, and they work to make sure that speakers, musicians, and special performances can be heard by the congregation and those listening online.

“Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.” -1 Peter 4:10
The United Methodist Church (UMC) is a connectional system of local congregations that seek to work together and with other people of faith to bring about God’s Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven. One of the ways that we do that is by sharing in our collective resources. In the state of Oklahoma we operate as the Oklahoma Conference of the UMC.
So what are apportionments? In short, they mean missions and ministries. There are over 500 local congregations or churches that make up our annual conference. Each church pays a certain portion of their budgets towards the strengthening of the overall ministries of the conference.
Some of the ministries that are supported by our apportionments are local and in Oklahoma, while others exist around the world. But in the words of John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement, “The world is my parish.”
