Please contact Kari Fedde at 482-9692, if you have any questions or are interested in making music in any of these groups.
Music is an important aspect of our worship experience at church. Shepherd of the Hills offers several opportunities to parishioners who wish to share their musical abilities. Prayerfully consider the following musical opportunities available to you:
Adult Choir is a group of dedicated members that volunteer their time and talents to assist in the Sunday morning worship services. Senior Choir collaborates regularly with instrumentalists and groups within the church such as Shepherd’s Song Praise Team, Rejoice Quartet and Bell Choir as well as with other area churches and visiting musicians. Senior choir meets on Wednesday nights from 7pm to 8pm, September through May.
Our Bluegrass Band is a bunch of musicians who come together to enjoy the sound that bluegrass music brings to worship. They are a new group at SOTH and are open to new members. This group includes banjo, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, piano, and bass, with vocals added by the instrumentalists.
Handbell Choir currently rings four octaves of handbells and chimes once a month in worship services. Literature is varied and mid-level in difficulty utilizing a variety of ringing techniques such as “martelating” (striking the bell on the table pad) and “plucking” (reaching into the bell to flip the hammer).
Shepherd’s Song: This talented group of musicians provides the worship songs and offertories for the contemporary service. This group also performs special concerts on occasion. Membership in this group is by audition. Contact the church office with any questions.
Lost Sheep – Every once in a while, we gotta rock! Lost Sheep is the rockin’ worship band at SOTH and they get everyone’s toes tapping. Want to jam with the ‘sheep? See Pastor Dana
Swinging Shepherds – The newest group at Shepherd is our jazz combo, Swinging Shepherds. They bring an upbeat style to some familiar tunes. Want to swing with the shepherds? See Pastor Dana
The Flock – Our SOTH orchestra, The Flock can be heard in worship on Reformation Sunday in October and in our Easter Sunday worship. We have youth and adults playing together with the organ to pull out all the stops and fill the sanctuary. The Flock meets in October to prepare for Reformation and has several rehearsals before Easter Sunday. Strings, winds and percussion instruments comprise this group.
