Ministry of Worship and Music

Purpose

The purpose of The Ministry of Worship and Music at Good Shepherd is to meet the need for a wide variety of corporate and individual worship experiences, and to provide opportunities for musical expression to all skill/age levels of the congregation. Good Shepherd places a great emphasis on the quality and variety of its worship and music experiences, always emphasizing the importance of the Word of God.

Holy Communion is celebrated at every service on the First and Third weekends of the month and on all major festivals. It is celebrated at all 5:00 p.m. Saturday evening services.  All baptized believers in Jesus Christ are welcome to commune. 

We are delighted to work with family and friends of Good Shepherd at key moments in your life. That may include preparing for marriage, baptism into the church, or for a funeral or memorial service. Contact Debbie Jones for more information. 

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir leads worship for the 11 a.m. traditional services, September through the beginning of June. The choir sings a variety of music in traditional, multi-cultural, and gospel styles. 

Praise Team

A Praise Team leads the singing of the liturgy and hymns for the 9:30 a.m. contemporary services. Members are assigned to a group and rotate participation. Rehearsals are held prior to the scheduled singing date on Wednesday evenings during the school year and on Sunday mornings in the Summer. Contact Ken Holdt for more information. 

Victory Singers

The Victory Singers offers a musical selection for the 9:30 a.m. contemporary services twice a month, September through the beginning of June. Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings from 7:35-8:35. The choir sings mostly contemporary Christian music. Contact Ken Holdt for more information. 

Pipe Organ

Good Shepherd's Pipe Organ was completed in August 1991. It was built by the Bunn-Minnick Organ Company in Columbus, Ohio. The organ consists of 3 manuals, 45 ranks and 2732 pipes. 

Flowers

Flowers are a way to beautify the worship space and are a wonderful way to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or the memory of a loved one. A flower chart is available in the church lobby. The church is happy to order flowers for you at the cost of $25.00. If you prefer to order your own arrangement, please have them delivered to the church between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Friday. For more information, please contact Debbie Jones. Order forms for Poinsettias and Easter Flowers will be posted on the web about 4 weeks prior to the event.
