Welcome to the music ministry of St. Paul UCC!

If you have an interest in and a talent for music, there is a place for you here! Our goal is to “make a joyful noise to the Lord” and to enhance the worship experience! We do that through many different groups, all with the same philosophy — serving Christ in every way possible. When the various musical groups perform in church, people usually clap, and that makes us happy. But that is not why we do it. We do it as a personal offering to God, delivered within the framework of the specific group performing. Please join us as we progress on our journey. All are welcome here!
