Ministries

Music

The Music Ministry is here to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through song, encourage believers in their walk with Christ, lead

the congregation in worship and provide an avenue through which individuals may share their gift and be an integral part of worship. The Music Ministry spreads the Word of God through music experiences. Music is an important part of each of our worship times.

We hope that if you can play an instrument or can sing that you will come be a part of our music ministry. Email Sterling at sterlinga@goodchurch.us for more information or to audition.

  • As an integral part of the traditional worship experience at Good Shepherd, the CHANCEL CHOIR meets together to worship, rehearse, minister, fellowship, pray and care for one another in a family atmosphere. The Chancel Choir is an integral part of our time of worship as we lead our traditional 9:15 service (GS Classic) each Sunday morning, and provide great seasonal events for worship and outreach. The Chancel Choir welcomes all adults who have a desire to raise whatever voice they have! The requirements for membership are enthusiasm, energy, and effort. Our rehearsals are as uplifting as they are challenging. We work to develop a collective sense of community that enables us to share glimpses of God’s love with one another. Singing in the Chancel Choir is without question a major commitment, but the rewards are worthwhile in every way! Rehearsals are on Wednesdays at 7:00pm in the Music Suite.

    The Good Shepherd Fine Arts Academy is enrolling students now! Private lessons in musical intruments, voice, drama and other fine arts now enrolling students. Contact Lisa Eaves at GSFAA@goodchurch.us to learn more about enrolling.

    The CHANCEL ORCHESTRA provides accompaniment for congregational singing, preludes and other incidental music in our traditional 9:15 service (GS Classic) each Sunday as well as regularly accompanies the Chancel Choir in anthems and seasonal events. This is a dedicated group of musicians ranging in experience from professionals to aspiring students. We welcome any instrumentalist who has at least one year of experience on their instrument.

    The Fusion Praise Team/Band provides music leadership in the 10:45am Fusion service with an energetic contemporary style. Vocals are added to guitars, drums and keyboard to generate a vibrant, uplifting atmosphere for worship. Other instruments and vocals

    are added by audition. Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings and Sunday mornings.

    PEALS OF JOY is an outstanding handbell choir which meets for rehearsal on

    Mondays at 7:00pm in the worship area. We welcome new members who are at

    least fundamental music readers and have the desire to offer excellence in musical performance. This group plays preludes, offertories, and other music for worship, festivals, and other church functions.

    Audio/ Video Service Opportunity

    We have a volunteer opportunity for those who are interested in the audio

    and visual aspects of worship. We are looking for people to serve on the soundboard and run ProPresenter during church service.

    All service times are available! Training will be provided, and you can either serve on an "as needed" basis, or every Sunday.

    We would love to have you join our team. Email marke@goodchurch.us to learn more.
