The mission of the Music Ministry is to minister to the Batavia United Methodist Church congregation, using music to praise God, raise up each other, and amplify the Word through our presence, our gifts, and our service in worship.
We offer opportunities for musical expression and service across all age groups, interests, and aptitudes. We encourage all who are interested to contact our Director of Music Chris Plasch for more information.
