Music Ministry

Music is an important part of how we worship God and how we express ourselves. The music ministry at Deer Park UMC has a place for all styles of musicians – classical, contemporary, singers, and instrumentalists. Contact our director of Music Ministries, Barry Talley, for more information.


The Sanctuary Choir is under the direction of Barry Talley and rehearses Wednesdays at 7 pm in the choir room (112). The choir leads the congregation as we sing every Sunday through a wide selection of hymns and praise songs.​

You do not have to be here every Wednesday or even every Sunday to be a part of the choir. The choir is comprised of some very talented and experienced section leaders and filled out with a large number of “shower singers.” You do not need to read music, audition, or sing a solo (unless you ask for one) to join with this group to praise God through music. All you have to do is show up.

Praise Team

The Praise Team enhances our worship in the service each Sunday. The team leads the congregation with a variety of modern Christian music and incorporates different instruments, sounds, and voices into their music.

Worship through Music!

Participating in worship is a blessing and a responsibility. These groups of people join together to make our worship experiences the best it can be.
