Music Ministries

“Their sound has gone out into all lands, and their message to the ends of the world.”

PSALM 19:4

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth,
  break forth into joyous song and sing praises.
Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
  with the lyre and the sound of melody.
With trumpets and the sound of the horn
  make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord. 
Psalm 98:4-6 NRSV


St. Peter’s Choir is a choir of mixed voices which sings a variety of repertoire from the Renaissance, spirituals, gospel and the best possible contemporary music. We welcome seasonal residents to join us as they are able. Each member brings something unique to the choir and all are equally valued. Choir is a ministry to the congregation as well as to the members; convivial fellowship is always our goal. 

The choir sings in the 9:30 service, as a rule.

St. Peter’s Handbell Choir is a group of musicians who enjoy the teamwork of making music with handbells. We utilize 4-5 octaves of Schulmerich handbells and all the fun and excitement that modern handbell music’s special effects affords its players. Members support each other in learning to ring the range of handbells. The handbell choir rings in worship, alternating services, about once a month and for the early Christmas Eve service, the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday. New ringers should contact the Minister of Music to coordinate an entry date and appropriate position within the group. 

St. Peter’s Hand Bell Choir practices in the Sanctuary at 2:00 pm on Tuesdays.

Soloists and Ensembles

St. Peter’s has many auxiliary musicians who lead worship with solos or small ensembles, instrumental and vocal. They may be soloists with choir or bell choir, sing for special services; they might be instrumentalists with special talents and are represented by all age groups.
