The St Paul Celebration Concert Series Celebrating 25 years of Casavant Opus 3728 

On Friday, February 9th we enjoyed Guest Organist Keith Shafer, as we celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Dedication of this beautiful instrument! Keith provided a great program based on Hymns of the Church.

This Concert was given in honor and memory of our brother in Christ, Larry White, (d. 2023) and also remembered and  honors the Organ Committee who made this unique and beautiful pipe organ possible.

Martin Luther felt strongly about music: "I truly desire that all Christians would love and regard as worthy the lovely gift of music, which is a precious, worthy, and costly treasure given … by God. We are blessed with people who practice this lovely gift in more than one choir or ensemble. It is a joy to serve together in this ministry that Martin Luther calls a precious, worthy and costly treasure given by God.

We are always ready to welcome new friends! Choir schedules are available in the Music Room and below on this page.
