“I, Doctor Martin Luther, wish all lovers of the unshackled art of music grace and peace from God the Father and from our Lord Jesus Christ!

I truly desire that all Christians would love and regard as worthy the lovely gift of music, which is a precious, worthy, and costly treasure given to mankind by God.”

Foreword to Georg Rhau’s Collection, “Symphoniae iucundae”
Georg Rhau. 1488 – 1548

Music is a vital ministry in the Lutheran Church. Shepherd of the Hills continues to support music in many different ways. We have many talented guitarists who form The Shepherd’s String Choir. If you are interested in joining this group, please visit a rehearsal on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. in the Music Room. All are welcome!

In the past, we have had a chancel choir of volunteer singers. We have many talented vocalists in the congregation who perform solos as well. Because of the lack of a choral director, we are currently working with The String Choir for special occasions.

We have two octaves of Schulmerich Bells and interest in forming a handbell choir. In 2011, we had a great handbell choir, but graduating students decimated the choir. We hope to reform the handbell choir in the coming year.

Because of our love of music and our Appalachian Community, we also seek to support the many talented people in our area who play instruments.

If you are interested in playing or singing for our congregation, please contact Robin and she will make arrangements for you to share
