Music Ministries

St. Michael Lutheran Church believes that music is a power way to proclaim God's Word.  Therefore, we augment our worship services with a variety of musical groups.
Chancel Choir
A group of singers committed to providing special music at our 8:30 am Traditional Worship service.  The Chancel Choir also provides special music at Christmas, Lent, and Easter special services.  Music styles include classical, Gospel, and contemporary. Any and all are welcome to join this choir.  Rehearsals take place on Thursday evenings at
7:30 pm.  The choir typically sings on the 2nd and 4th Sunday's of the month, September through May.
Contemporary Worship Team
This music group has the responsibility and privilege of leading the congregation in praise at our contemporary worship service on Sundays at 10:45 am. Typical instrumentation will include acoustic, bass and electric guitar, drums, keyboard, lead and supporting vocals. The team is led by Mark Elvey and his assistant, Aaron Reed. If you think you have a gift for playing an instrument or singing, we would love to have you come in for an audition! If you are interested, please contact the church office.
St. Michael Brass Quartet
A group of brass musicians dedicated to adding a little power to our proclamation! The group typically plays for special worship services (Reformation Sunday, All Saints Sunday, Christmas Eve, Easter Sunday.) If you play a brass instrument, we probably can use you. Please contact Pastor Gibbs if you are interested in playing with us.
Bells of the Spirit
A music group for elementary and Junior High youth. Each member of this group rings one or two bells. Little or no musical training is required to join this group. We will provide all the training you need. See Pastor Gill if you are interested.
Youth Wind Ensemble
This musical group includes brass and woodwind musicians of all types. The group sometimes is small - 4 to 6 players - and sometimes larger. A couple years ago we performed at Easter with 14 musicians! If you are 18 or younger and play in your high school or junior high band, we would love to have you play with us. Contact Pastor Gibbs is you are interested.
