Music Ministries

Music is an integral part of the worship services at Holy Shepherd Lutheran Church.  Many opportunities are available to participate!

The Festival Worship Services feature classic and modern hymns with primarily organ accompaniment.  Other instruments are occasionally used.  This service begins at 8:30 am Sunday morning.

The Celebration Communion Services feature contemporary worship songs accompanied by the Praise Band Musicians and Singers.  Worship service times are 5 p.m. on Saturday and 9:50 a.m. on Sunday.

The music groups participate primarily in one style of worship service; however, they do occasionally cross over and play in the other style of service.
