Music, Arts & Worship

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the rock of our salvation. - Psalm 95:1


Music is a big part of who we are at Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church.

Have you ever thought about becoming part of PHUMC’s musical and artistic family, where laughter and fellowship are as important as the music?

From being involved in Classic worship, Modern worship, or technology, there are lots of opportunities to get involved! If so, PHUMC offers a multitude of ways to worship and connect through music and the arts. For more information, click on the area you are interested in below. If you don’t find what you are looking for, feel free to contact us at 501-664-3600.


Adult Choirs
We endeavor to use music to generate excitement, beauty, and inspiration in the services of worship. Choir membership is open (no auditions needed) throughout the year. Our vision for the choir is:

  • Full loft
  • Congregation that sings strongly and joyfully
  • Meaningful, transformative worship
  • Music that inspires, moves, grips people
  • Choirs of people that serve as modified small groups, taking care of and praying for each other
  • People singing their faith strongly – living it strongly
  • People that utilize their gifts of sound and spirit to do good in the community – hands on missions, raising funds for missions and taking our Spirit to areas that may have forgotten or not known it.

The CHANCEL CHOIR sings each Sunday for the 9:00 televised service and/or the 11:00 service. They rehearse each Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:00 p.m. The choir is open to all who love to sing. No auditions are required. Contact the church office at 501-664-3600 for more information.

Modern Worship Team
Our Modern Worship Team leads worship every Sunday. We are always looking for new members. You can contact Brooke Hobbs or Trenton Teegarden at 501-664-3600 for more information on this group.

Children's Choir

We have two Children’s Choirs (K-1st Grade & 2nd-4th Grade) that meet on Wednesday Nights throughout the Fall and Spring. To learn more, contact Dr. Frode Gundersen at or 501-664-3600 or Trenton Teegarden at or 501-664-3600.


From broadcasting on KATV to lighting up the stage in Wesley Hall, our Technology teams are vital to the worship experience and our music ministries. From volunteering once a month to every Sunday, we could always use an extra set of hands.

Stanley and Arminta Berry Music and Arts Scholarship

Background: In 2006 and 2007, Arminta Berry made generous contributions totaling $100,000 to the Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church Foundation (PHUMC) to establish the Stanley and Arminta Berry Music and Arts Scholarship. The music and arts ministry of this church was extremely important to the late Mr. Berry and continues to be of vital significance to Mrs. Berry. When Mrs. Berry made the donation, she said, “This church has meant a great deal to our family for almost 50 years. Because of all it has done for the Berry family, I want to make a contribution to its future so that its ministries will continue to help others.” The vision and foresight of the Berry family will indeed help others in their church family for years to come as talented young people are given the opportunity to further their education in one of the arts. The Berry Music & Arts scholarship application is available starting in January.
