Music at SMPC

MUSIC for WORSHIP

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

     Colossians 3:16

Our first priority in music at SMPC is to help to lead our congregation into God honoring worship through song! We sing a wide variety of Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs in our worship together each week. Click below to listen to the songs we sing.

(Songs we will sing in 10am worship the coming Sunday are the first 5 or 6 at the top of the list - updated midweek.)

JOIN the MUSIC TEAM

Joining a music group is one of the best ways to meet people and build community, especially in the Church. Consider whether the Lord is calling you to join and serve in one of these musical ways.

'In the Light' Worship Band (ITL)

The band helps to lead worship weekly at our 10:00 am service. We rehearse Thursdays at 8:15 pm. We play a wide variety of styles to keep things interesting.

New instrumentalists and singers are always welcome. Play an instrument? Want to LEARN to play one? Come jam with us on a Thursday night. You don't need a special invitation! Just come to enjoy making music to the glory of God. Walk-ins welcome.

Choir

Our choir meets Thursdays at 7:00 pm from September through May. The choir sings a couple times per month to enhance our worship service with beautiful music. Come and join us! You do *not* need to have experience singing in a choir, or even reading music - just bring your voice and a desire to praise the Lord in song!

Children's Choir

Kids Pre-K through 6th Grade are invited to sing! Children's choir meets periodically throughout the year to sing in the 10:00 am service and our annual Christmas Cantata. While in session, we rehearse on Sundays right after the 10:00 am worship service. We begin around 11:10 and rehearsals last just 20 minutes. (Exact start time can vary depending on the worship service that morning.) Done in plenty of time for lunch!

Rehearsals:  Feb 18, 25, Mar 3, 10, 17

     *This one is extra fun for the kids because as soon as they are done singing, they get the special job of passing out palm branches to everyone in worship!

Easter Choir + Handbells

Each year we are happy to augment our "regular" choir with all you folks who love to sing but are not able to make a longer term commitment to choir right now. We have 5 rehearsals, and sing on both Palm Sunday and Easter! It really is a wonderful time sharing in song God's great love for us - that He gave His only Son so that we might LIVE.
