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.
Our first priority in music as 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.
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
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.
Our choir meets Thursdays at 7:00 pm from September through May, and sings in the 10:00 am worship service a couple times per month. We sing choral anthems and also regularly join forces with the band.
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!
