As believers and followers of Jesus Christ, we give back to the Lord from the abundant blessings He has given us – not only our whole lives, since He gave His, but we worship Him with the various talents and skills He has bestowed on us.
St. Paul Lutheran Church thrives with music ministry and all members are encouraged to participate in an area of worship that suites their skills and abilities the best. To God be the glory!

The St. Paul (Adult) Choir shares their vocal praise in Sunday services and with special music on holidays. Participants consist of college-aged and up men and women. No previous experience necessary, but music knowledge and being able to read notes will help! Rehearsals take place Tuesday nights from 7:00 - 8:30PM.
The bell choir provides music during worship services and other special occasions. For those who want to make a joyful noise to the Lord and have a fun time doing it! The commitment is practice Tuesdays from 5:45-6:45 PM and performances at the 7:45 & 9:15 services on the third Sunday of the month. This group is led by Mary Ann Fibiger, our organist.
Thursday Informal Praise Team
Thursday Informal Praise Worship is led by a group of various musicians and singers. If you’d like to give your musical gifts to the Lord and are otherwise busy on Sundays, this is a great opportunity! The group practices right before the 6:30PM service at 5:15 PM.
