Music & Fine Arts

At Manchaca UMC, we believe the Arts are a language of Faith with in the Church, a language of outreach from the Church to the world, and a means of attracting others to the Faith.  Our Music & Fine Arts Ministry consists of many different areas and opportunities for involvement including vocal, instrumental, drama, art, & more.  We are blessed with many talented people, however, we are always seeking to develop and involve new people of all ages.

For more information about the Fine Arts Ministry or any of the ensembles, contact Mark Hixon at 512-282-7274, ext. 325 or Mark@ManchacaUMC.org
