First United Methodist Church of Bartow, FL




The choir is under the direction of Mrs. Bonnie Allen, who joined our staff in 1999. We are dedicated to bringing our congregation into the presence of God with our music. This takes a  dedicated effort to practice and to commit to Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings in order to understand the music and communicate its message. In addition to many fine voices, we have a number of gifted musicians who play a wide variety of instruments such as organ, piano, trumpet, cello, flute, horn, and hammered dulcimer.
