SPLC Music in Worship, Choirs, Ensembles

Music plays an important role at SPLC. The ministry of music at St. Philip’s offers several opportunities for people of all ages to discover, develop and share their musical gifts.  Many instrumentalists and singers who support strong congregational singing provide music leadership in worship.

Young people and adults who are interested in being a part of this dynamic music ministry are invited to contact Ellen Diischer, Director of Music, or just come to any rehearsal, anytime, to “check it out.”  You do not have to be a member of St. Philip's to be a part of any of the following groups.  All are welcome!  Come and see!
