“Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth; break into song; sing praise. Sing praise to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and melodious song. With trumpets and the sound of the horn shout with joy to the King, the LORD.” Psalm 98
The music ministry at St. Stephen exists to enable the sung prayer of the whole assembly. All of the efforts of the many people who make up our music ministry are oriented toward the goal of raising hearts and minds to God through active participation in music and song. This ministry provides music that facilitates prayerful reflection and therefore its members respectfully prepare and practice this music with a willing spirit!
