Fairhaven’s principal choir, the Sanctuary Choir sings at most services and for all major holidays. This choir sings a large variety of music and forms the nucleus of Fairhaven Musical Theater.

Fairhaven’s Gospel Choir sings once or twice a month at the worship service and, as its name implies, is focused on traditional and contemporary gospel music. Members of the gospel choir also sing in a group that is well-known locally, the “Royal Harmonizers.”  The Gospel Choir most recently formed a men’s group called “Synergy in Spirit.”  The choir often participates in Gospel programs at area churches and hosts an anniversary concert at Fairhaven the first Sunday in October. In addition, over the past eleven years, the choir has traveled annually to Hillcrest UM Church in Fredericksburg, VA to perform in full concert. From time to time the Gospel Choir and the Sanctuary Choir combine to sing special music.

This choir plays approximately once every six weeks and participates in all Fairhaven Musical Theater productions. Fairhaven has a three-octave set of Schulmerich Handbells and a two-octave set of choir chimes.

Handbell Choir


Fairhaven United Methodist Church was formed when McDonald Chapel, Hunting Hill, and Pleasant View voted to combine their congregations in 1968.  We are Christians devoted to making disciples for Jesus Christ to transform the world.
