Music at St. Peter’s

St. Peter’s is blessed with a strong and vibrant music ministry that offers many ways to make a joyful noise.

We have participation of the congregation singing hymns at the 9 AM and 11 AM services. We also feature a rotation of our children and youth choir, men’s choir, adult full choir, and a handbell choir. We have a Steinway grand piano and impressive pipe organ. We also feature instrumentalists from the congregation who wish to share their musical gifts. Information about the music staff is here.
