Music is a very important part of the service: adult and junior choirs, women’s quartet (Bon Voyage), and a variety of talent in each service, as well as a song leader to lead familiar and new hymns from the two UU hymnals. Our music coordinator is Richard McLeod.

The UUCC Adult Choir, under the direction of Bill Moody, consists of a  talented group who meet biweekly at the congregation at 9:30 to practice the songs to be sung during the service later that morning. During the school year, practices are held on the second and fourth Sundays.

The UUCC Junior Choir is made up of a talented group of young musicians, who meet 2-3 times a month to rehearse, and perform during a worship service approximately once a month.  They talk about the history and meaning of the songs they sing, make up dances, learn sign language to lyrics, and even write original compositions.  Most of all, they are able to get together to make meaningful music to share with others!  Young people interested in joining the Junior Choir are encouraged to contact Brandi Mimbs at jrchoir@uucolumbia.org. 

Bon Voyage is our woman’s quartet who come together to sing occasionally during our worship service.
The UUCC uses one hymnal—Singing the Living Tradition and a supplement that is often referred to as the teal hymnal, Singing the Journey.

Here’s our junior choir singing on May 13, 2017.
