All are welcome to attend the 12th annual District Music Fest (a.k.a. Choir Fest).

A mass choir comprised of UMC members from all around the Purchase District will be performing two (2) choral pieces at the event. A mass praise band will also perform. Each church choir and praise band will perform one selection of their own choosing.

Donations will be accepted at the event through a love offering with 100% of donations benefiting Reelfoot Rural Ministries, located in Obion, TN - a ministry of the Memphis Conference of The United Methodist Church. Those giving to the offering are asked to make checks payable to their local church and write “Reelfoot Rural Ministries” in the memo line. Then, each local church is asked to write one check made payable to Reelfoot Rural Ministries and bring it to Music Fest to place in the offering.

At the 2018 event, a mass choir gathered for the 11th annual Choir Fest with proceeds totaling $4,020.00 and benefiting Reelfoot Rural Ministries.
