Music is a big part of life at St. Paul. Hymns both modern and traditional are sung during worship. Special guests visit and add their musical gifts to our services. Our choir under the direction of RyanPhelps leads the congregational singing and provides beautiful anthems to enhance our worship. They are a fun and enthusiastic group who enjoy “making a joyful noise” in praise of God. Everyone is encouraged to join them; no formal training is required! Rehearsals are 7:30 Thursdays.
St. Paul’s has a long history of putting on musicals with Biblical themesthat involve congregants of all ages as actors, costumes and set designers. The acoustics of the St. Paul’s sanctuary has also made it the perfect venue for musical concerts for the community.
