Music Ministry


Music Ministry Overview

Director of Music: Curtis R. Harrington, Jr.

Greetings everyone!

My name is Curtis R. Harrington, Jr. and I am the Director of Music at Emory United Methodist Church.

The purpose of the Music Ministry at Emory United Methodist Church is to musically guide everyone into a meaningful worship experience and continuously enhance the worship experience through uplifting and diverse vocal praise and musicianship. The Music Ministry makes every effort to choose and render musical selections that renews the spirit, incites rejoicing, and reminds all persons of God’s love for all mankind and the church. We recognize the power of music in the worship experience and its effects on the preached Word of God, so we consider it both a privilege and our reasonable service to encourage everyone to joyfully give their best offering of praise and adoration to God through song.

The schedule for our choirs are:
  • 1st Sunday: Fellowship Choir
  • 2nd Sunday: Fellowship Choir
  • 3rd Sunday: Fellowship Choir
  • 4th Sunday: Men’s Chorus
  • 5th Sunday (if applicable): Usually the Fellowship Choir, but persons may be selected to sing at Director’s discretion.

We rehearse on Thursdays in the sanctuary at the following location from 7pm-9pm:

Brightwood Park United Methodist Church

744 Jefferson St, NW, Washington, DC 20011
