Music Ministry

Intro

Music has long held a vital role in the worship and ministry of St. Peder’s. Through the unique language of song, our musicians strive to explore and express our daily call to live out the Gospel. Embracing our faith mission, we welcome all with open hearts to join us in song.

St. Peder’s Choir

Celebrates it’s Lutheran choral heritage contributing weekly anthems and liturgical music to worship. The choir’s dedication to musical excellence accompanies a strong commitment to fostering a unique singing community. In both Advent and Lent, the chorus presents a masterwork with chamber instrumentalists and prides itself on exploring diverse repertoire ranging from the Baroque to Gospel. All are welcome for Thursday evening rehearsals and Sunday morning services.

St. Peder’s Youth Choir

Welcomes young adults in 4th-8th grades to gather in song Sundays from 10:15 – 10:45. Selections prepared vary from choral anthems to U2 covers which are shared monthly in worship.

Solo Vocal and Instrumental Music

Solo vocalists and instrumentalists generously share their time and talents at St. Peder’s. Whether interested in contributing special music for the 10:30 a.m. worship or summer services, or hoping to collaborate with the St. Peder’s Adult or Youth Choirs, we invite you to contact Rita Juhl to learn about opportunities.

Sunday School Music

Believing in music education opportunities for all youth, St. Peder’s weekly Sunday School begins with 10 minutes of group vocal warm-ups, music games, and choral singing. All youth share their young voices throughout the year in special worship services including the annual Children’s Advent Pageant and May’s Youth Music Day.
