Music plays a major part in the ministry of St. Paul’s, from our organized Chancel Choir and Bell Choir ensembles to our new U’kulele choir or our congregational singing, overall music enhances the worship experience.  It has been said that one should make a joyful noise unto the Lord and that is supported in the music that is woven into our weekly Worship experience.

The Music Ministry is an important part of the total worship experience.  We invite you to add your talents to this ministry by participating in the Chancel Choir, Bell Choir or adding your instrumental talents to the music program.
