MUSIC MINISTRY

"Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!"  Psalm 95:1

                     

We love to praise the Lord with music and song.

Music is an important part of worship at St. Peter’s that would not be possible without the dedicated volunteers who make up our choirs, bands, ensembles, orchestra and handbells. We invite you to look over our musical groups and rehearsal times to see if any may be a good fit for you. We would love for you to get connected and join us as we praise the Lord through music.

We have groups for all ages!
