Music Ministries


Prince of Peace celebrates the musical talents of our members and provides outlets for these abilities. We have a wide range of musical ensembles that welcome children and adult singers and instrumentalists.

Music is a meaningful expression of the scriptures and theologies of the church. Through our music we can reflect on and “live” those texts in new and exciting ways.  From the music of Martin Luther and J. S. Bach to current composers, the Lutheran Church has welcomed music that reflects the thoughts and beliefs of the church.

Through music, God’s spirit “lives” in all of us. We all have our favorite hymns and styles of music, but new musical pieces are constantly being created as people explore new ways to experience the Word. Through these new pieces we are given the opportunity to have new favorites.

Prince of Peace’s music staff is continuing to find ways to involve choirs and instrumentalists during this time of worshiping-at-home. Small groups of vocalists and musicians record at home or in the Sanctuary, following the guidance of the Smart Team, and Prince of Peace staff and volunteers are continuing to learn new techonology that will allow for more people to be involved in Music Ministry at Prince of Peace.  

Thank you to Chris Thornton, Bill Thornton and Erika Warkentien for the incredible amount of time and dedication to bringing Prince of Peace’s virtual services to life and allowing us to use musicians gifts to enhances Prince of Peace’s worship experience.

You Can Make Prince of Peace Even Better

To keep our community connected and maintain a vibrant worship life, we have made some significant investments into our sound and video technology over the past year. Now that we’re preparing for the return to in-person worship in our sanctuary we need help from our community to continuing using these powerful tools for the benefit an even larger pool of participants. But we can’t do this without more help.
