The music ministry of Good Shepherd represents a variety of groups and a wide range of musical styles in which to participate. Opportunities for adults include participation in the Good Shepherd Choir and in ShepherdSong. Instrumental musicians have opportunities to offer solos, play in ensembles, or accompany our various vocal music groups.

Good Shepherd Choir is a traditional choir that provides music for the 8:30am worship service on Sundays. The choir sings a new anthem (from virtually all periods of music) every week for our offertory, leads the congregation in musical psalm settings and hymn singing, and occasionally sings special music for communion. They present an annual Advent Lessons and Carols service and special music during the seasons of Advent, Lent, Easter and Pentecost.

The choir rehearses on Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:30 and on Sunday mornings at 8:00 from September until early June. Membership is open to anyone (with the ability to match pitch) regardless of previous experience.

ShepherdSong is a group of singers and instrumentalists that provides musical leadership of a more contemporary nature for the 11:15am worship service. The group leads the congregation in praise songs, service music, and presents an offertory selection every Sunday. The group rehearses on Monday nights from 6:45-9:15 and on Sunday mornings at 10:00. Because of the ensemble nature of the group, persons interested in participating are asked to audition.
