Next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise.  The gift of language combined with the gift of song was given to man that he should proclaim the Word of God through Music. — Martin Luther

Good Shepherd knows how integral music is to our lives.  It prepares our hearts and minds for worship.  It recalls memories of weddings or funerals.  It lifts us up.  It helps us take on the day ahead.  Ultimately, it brings us into closer relationship with God.

Good Shepherd is blessed to have a wide range of musicians that are willing to share their talents with our community and help us provide a vareity of styles of worship.  From traditional hymns and organ to the latest Christian-pop with guitars and drums, Good Shepherd has a style of worship and music that will speak to you and your faith.

Praise Band

Good Shepherd's Praise Band offers music during Contemporary Worship services.  There are actually three rotating bands that play with each other, each featuring two guitars, a bassist, and a drummer.  Ken Holdt, the Director of Contemporary Worship, provides piano for all three bands.  

There are also a number of "auxiliary players" join the bands on a less frequent basis providing music from different instruments, such as strings, hand percussion, or using software patches.

For a sampling of the music you'll hear provided by the Praise Band, check out their YouTube playlist of songs they recorded for use with our online worship at one point during COVID-19 pandemic:

If you'd like to share your musical gifts with our congregation at Contemporary Worship, reach out to Ken Holdt!
