Music Ministry at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church
St. Paul’s Lutheran Church has an active music ministry featuring four singing choirs and a handbell choir. We are blessed with wonderful acoustics and backed by a splendid pipe organ. Our worship is liturgical but not overly formal, and we use the Evangelical Lutheran Worship Hymnal of the ELCA.
Children’s Choir: Elementary school age children, beginning in first grade [kindergarten is possible if the parent and child think he or she is ready] are invited to sing in this group. The choir meets on Thursday evenings from 6:30-7:25, and usually sings on the first Sunday of the month in the early service, and in special services throughout the year.
Youth Choir: Older children and youth from middle school and high school make up this group. The youth choir meets two Sundays a month, 7:00-8:00 pm, and sings usually once a month and at special services. Contact Andy for the Youth choir schedule.
Adult Choir: The adult choir rehearses every Thursday from 7:30-9:00 pm, and sings usually in the late service every Sunday morning. They are backed by a professional quartet. They also sing in concerts and festival services throughout the year.
Handbell Choir: This group is led by Gordon Downing and meets Sundays after the late service to practice. They play periodically in Sunday morning worship services and are open to all who would like to learn the art of handbell ringing.
Matins Choir: the Matins Choir provides liturgical leadership in the early service, and has a warm up rehearsal at 8:40 on Sunday mornings.
There are also needs for vocal soloists and instrumentalists throughout the year. Do you play an instrument? Please contact me so we can use your gifts as well.
There are no auditions for any choir at St. Paul’s. All you need is a love of singing and leading worship to find your place in one of our choirs.
