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!

The Fabulous John Glosson – Sunday, March 10, 2 PM

We welcome the super-talented John Glosson to St. Paul UCC. 

John grew up in Georgia as a pastor’s kid. Music has always been a huge part of his life. After attending Liberty University and singing for the Sounds of Liberty he then became a worship leader in Jacksonville, Florida.

After making it to Hollywood on American Idol, John was chosen to be a contestant on ABC’s Duets. On Duets, John was paired with the amazing and talented Jennifer Nettles and he ultimately finished as the runner up. After returning home to Douglas, Ga John continued to lead worship for his local church and along with his wife Debra…worked hard at building their business J&D Designs and Cafe.

Even though God had blessed J&D Designs and Cafe, John couldn’t help but hear that still small voice nudging him to share his gift and his love for worshiping the Creator. His new EP Spirit Move is a reflection of what God has done in his heart and life. John is now completely dedicated to using his gifts in the hopes that others will be encouraged and worship with a bold spirit.

John is a  singer/songwriter and finalist and runner-up on ABC’s Duets with Jennifer Nettles. 

This is the concert of the season.  Please join us for this must-see event.
