The United Methodist Church of Red Bank has a long history of providing amazing music for our congregation. We are very honored to have a Hradetzky Organ, which just celebratedour-organ a birthday! It has been providing incredible music and has graced our sanctuary for 40 years.
 
Our Music Ministry is lead by Evan Courtney who comes to us from the great state of Wyoming. Evan is a very talented musician and singer and leads our 3 choir groups: Sanctuary Choir, Wesley Singers and Children’s Choir. Both adults and children have the opportunity to join our choirs and make some joyful noise!
 
During the summer months choir is open to all who wish to sing on Sunday mornings. This is a great opportunity to give our choir a try.
