Music Ministries


Prince of Peace celebrates the musical talents of our members and provides outlets for these abilities.

Prince of Peace has 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.
