music ministry

We offer a wide variety of music at Central United Methodist Church. Susan Renz is our Music Minister and organist, and Donna Hill is our Chancel Choir Director. Oftentimes, we'll bring in talented musicians from the Charlotte area to play in worship alongside our choir.



adult chancel choir

Central's Chancel Choir singers love one another, love God, and love making music. Music is a way of seeking God, a way of finding God, and a way of sharing God’s love with others. We discover with one another how music can unite us, heal us, challenge us, and teach us. Thanks be to God for music, and thanks be to God for Central where music is appreciated and nurtured.

The Chancel Choir is a non-auditioned group that welcomes anyone who wants to come and make music with us. The choir is led by Donna Hill ( and accompanied by Susan Renz (
