The Music Ministry at St. John’s United Methodist Church-Greensboro uses music to generate excitement, beauty, and inspiration in our services of worship. The choral program is intended to nurture those involved and to give a means of contributing in worship, outreach, and praise, as well as an opportunity for personal growth and enjoyment. Our Music Ministry welcomes anyone who would like to join us in this most rewarding endeavor. Anyone wishing to receive more information about participating in our Music Ministry can contact Lloyd Eubanks, Director of Music.
