Psalm 33:1-3: “Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise Him. Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.”

Singing God’s praise and offering our worship both empowers and strengthens the Church. Indeed, the congregation itself is the largest choir in our Church – and,as Scripture tells us, we are always encouraged to sing our wonderful hymns with all the might, vigor, and enthusiasm that we can offer... the “first fruits” of our hearts and voices! If you would like to take this even a step further by joining a choir or offering instrumental music during worship, your participation in music at St. Peter’s is most warmly welcomed!

If you are interested in serving in the music ministry in any capacity, please contact Chris, Director of Music, at 701-0664, ext. 28 or via email at

St. Peter's shield - small How can I help?

  • Join a choir, or invite your children to join the Beginning Choir or Choristers (Many studies clearly demonstrate the great and lasting academic benefits of musical training for children… but even greater are the spiritual benefits!)
  • Donate the gift of music! Musical scores for choir anthems may be given in honor or in memory of a loved one. Or, offer a gift that enhances our worship by making a donation to have instrumentalists in our services!
  • Offer to play instrumental music during worship services.
  • Be a “choir angel” – come in on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to clean out choir folders and file music
