Friends of Music

The success of any artistic endeavor rests on the ongoing support of those who care about the organization. Our series does not operate on ticket sales alone nor does it receive funds from the church budget. First United Methodist Church is blessed with Friends of Music who actively support the Music and Arts Ministry through their prayers, presence, and tangible gifts. If you would like to be a part of assuring that our concerts continue, please take a moment and look at the Friends of Music categories listed below. Your gift, in any amount, will help us continue this program for our church and the community.

Your Friends of Music gift is tax deductible, less the value of any tangible items you may receive, such as concert tickets. If you wish to waive receiving tickets and have the entire donation credited to the Sacred Concert Series, please note this preference when considering your gift.

Corporate or Individual Sponsorship of particular concerts is welcomed. Please tell us which concert you would like to sponsor.

Special Note: Friends of Music contributors are offered seating in the reserved section at each concert and have their names acknowledged in each concert's program. Friends of Music contributors are invited to "Meet the Artist" events held to honor our guest artists.

The Board of Directors gratefully acknowledges this support.
