FUMC’s #SongSquad brings God’s love for children and children’s music to life! 

#SongSquad unites a team of adults and enthusiastic kids to focus on music, relationships, and leadership skills. The focus is Christ’s love for all children and the importance of sharing that love with each other. The group spends an action-packed hour filled with games, snacks, prizes, and music making.

Our premier children’s choir is open to all children of the community, regardless of religious affiliation or faith practice. We welcome children in kindergarten through fifth grade. For more information, CLICK HERE!

#SongSquad meets Thursdays at 5 p.m. Labor Day thru Memorial Day.


Friendships, fellowship, and laughter are the heartbeat of TeamTreble. FUMC’s only auditioned ensemble meets for sharing, snacks, and fast-paced music-making.  This treble ensemble is comprised of youth through age 20 with singing and choral experience.  Music reading abilities are necessary.

TeamTreble is becoming increasingly more visible with worship leadership and appearances on FUMC’s Music Fine Arts series.

Young women who enjoy treble singing are encouraged to submit a request for an audition to our Music Department via the Contact Us form.

Music Fine Arts

The Music Fine Arts Series is one of the church’s largest commitments to the Sarasota area. Our concert series has a long-distinguished history. First United Methodist Church is a prominent concert venue due to its prime downtown location and large seating capacity. In 2010 the sanctuary underwent significant renovations which resulted in the expanded chancel area and locally unparalleled acoustics. Music of all genres – jazz, gospel, classical, modern, choral, orchestral – are breathtaking in this sacred space. Also included are our special seasonal events, such as the Halloween Spooktacular and the Christmas Gala and Carol Sing!
