Vibrant and varied, music at St. Paul’s is central to the worship experience.
Under the direction of Helen Kegerreis, the program provides opportunities for musical and spiritual expression and growth for Senior and Junior Choir members, bell ringers in the Jubilate Ringers Handbell Choir, other musicians, and the general congregation.
The Senior Choir presents more than 70 anthems and choral responses each year, not only in Sunday morning worship, but also in special services, including Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Christmas Eve.
Instrumentalists from the St. Paul’s congregation, as well as guests from outside our membership, often accompany the choir. Singers from other church choirs add their voices to our worship services a few times each year.
On one Sunday service each December, the choir blesses the congregation with a special hour-long Christmas program of singing and music.
The Junior Choir adds the enthusiastic voices of children to several worship services during the year. Director Helen Kegerreis develops the musical sensibility and skills of the members by teaching them to accompany their singing with Orff instruments and other percussion instruments.
The Jubilate Ringers Handbell Choir is a shining jewel of the music program. Talented and dedicated bell ringers representing all ages of the congregation fill the sanctuary with soaring harmonies once each month from October to June.
Guest performers and St. Paul’s members bless worship services with special solo vocal performances and instrumental music several times each year.
