Music and Fine Arts

FUMC-Denton has a strong musical tradition, offering opportunities for children, youth, and adults.

Under the general direction of John Priddy, Director of Music and Worship, programs such as choirs, ensembles, instrumental ensembles and handbells enrich our worship services and offer members of the church and the community a refined array of musical recitals, concerts and presentations.

John counts on the skilled and experienced assistance of directors Carol Lynn Mizell (handbells), Jett Cheek (children’s choir and Fine Arts Academy) and Will Chandler (Credo Youth Chor).


At the Fine Arts Academy we believe the arts are a gift from God that gives us, those who bear His image, a means to worship and glorify the Creator. We also believe the arts help us to explore God and His creation, its inherent beauty and its current brokenness.


Directed by Jett Cheek, the Academy offers several classes including piano, guitar, voice, flute, violin, drums, music therapy and creative writing. For more information, contact Jett at
