Music at St Paul
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are not holding rehearsals on site yet. However, our 9:45 Musicians, the Joyful Noise Handbell Ringers, the 8:30 Choir & the 11:00 Choir are meeting by Zoom each week. Contact Deacon Kathleen if you wish to attend those.
We ask all families with children and youth to contact Kendall Kirk about gatherings via Zoom on Sunday mornings and Thursday evenings during this time.

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 to have multiple Ensembles, Choirs and Instrumentalists in our community.
It is a joy to serve and work together in this ministry that Martin Luther calls a precious, worthy and costly treasure given by God.
