Adult Choir

DSC01015-web50cropped2250x1500copyThe Cedar Park First United Methodist Church adult choir is currently comprised of 15 to 20 adults who share the joy of music. This group is a relaxed group that provides both traditional and contemporary music for our 10:45 Service.  During the Service, the choir leads the congregation in hymn singing and often presents an anthem.  This choir also presents larger works during both the Advent and Easter seasons.  We rehearse on Sundays during most of the school year.  Reading music is not a requirement, just the joy to share music with our congregation.
Music ranges from classical works by Mozart and Bach to more Contemporary music by Lloyd Larson, Natalie Sleeth, and others.  We occasionally work with instrumentalists for our larger works, and have various members share solos during the year.  We welcome all to join our family.
If you are interested in participating in the adult choir, please contact our music director and pianist, Jodi Blount, at 512-633-0009.

Easy Line Dancing

DSC01907-web50 600x400 croppedOur beginner line dance class welcomes everyone that wants to move and have fun.  It is exercise that does not seem like exercise.  If you are counting steps, one song can be as many as 100 steps and it is done in an air-conditioned room.  This is not a serious competitive class, we laugh and talk and get to know each other over an hour of fun.  Everyone is welcome no matter what your skill level may be.  We meet in the Sanctuary every Wednesday at 1:00 pm and it is a free class.  Our teacher, Parthenia Keys loves to dance and encourages everyone to give it a try!

Additionally, participants attend other annual events which include a Valentine dance sponsored by the church and a Round Rock Express game with other adult church members.

Buckles & Bows Square Dance Club

Buckles & Bows logoBuckles & Bows Square Dance Club meets every Thursday evening at Cedar Park First United Methodist Church from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.  We enjoy Square dancing, which is Fun, Fitness, and Friendship set to music.  You will not find another hobby like square dancing which is a great social equalizer, is inexpensive, combines the best of both art and science, is relaxing, stimulating and challenging at the same time, and lets you meet new friends. Square dancing contributes to a healthier and independent lifestyle.
Everyone is welcome; couples, singles and pre-teens (ages 10 & up) to learn to dance, as it is a great family activity.  We use a variety of music to suite all tastes.  Square Dancing takes several weeks to learn, so lessons are offered in the spring and fall, and each week lessons are “dances with instruction”. For more information, go to the website or e-mail Arnold Gladson.   Come “Dance in a Square, Make a Circle of Friends”!
