“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness; come into His presence with singing.”
From folk hymns and spirituals to cantatas and requiems, our music ministry’s diverse offerings reflect solid theology, serious rehearsal and quality performance. Corresponding to the lectionary scripture, the selections progress with the liturgical seasons. So that anyone may honor God with music, we offer a wide variety of opportunities.
For more information on the Music Ministry of St. Andrews, contact David Lukens, Director of Music, at email@example.com. You can check on the Worship Ministry Schedule at SAPC’s Worship Ministry Site.
