Music Ministry

Music is a great gift for drawing people to the gospel of Jesus Christ. It has the power to change the hearts of the hearers and the participants. God blesses us with many talents and it is the mission of the Worship and Music Ministry to use those talents to serve and praise the Lord.

Music and the Arts are an important part of the worship life at Holy Trinity. Our musical groups are always in search of talent and all are welcome to join. If you are interested learning more about one of the groups below, contact our Director of Music Ministry, Chris Murphy.

Children's Choir

 The Children’s Choir is a part of the BYG (Building Youth Groups) program as scheduled. Children also learn music during Sunday school through singing, hand chimes, and Orff instruments. The children help to lead worship throughout the year. It is a way for kids to “make a joyful noise!”

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir leads worship at the 11:00 traditional service and performs a variety of choral literature. The Chancel Choir is open to anyone high school age and older. The choir also participates in several community services throughout the year, including the annual downtown area Thanksgiving Service. Rehearsals are Wednesdays from 7:00 – 8:00 pm in the choir room. 


The SNL Praise Band is made up of high school students involved in our SNL Youth Group. Rehearsal for the praise band is Sundays at 4:30pm during the regular school year. All talents are welcome. From singing, guitar and drums to keyboard, violin and baritone. No matter the instrument or music talent you have, you will have a place! The SNL Praise Team primarily performs monthly during the SNL Youth worship service in the "Underground" (a worship space specifically for our youth on the lower level of the building).

Contemporary Praise TEAM

The contemporary praise team is the primary musical ensemble for the weekly 8:30 am contemporary worship service and leads the annual Holy Trinity Christmas Concert in mid-December. Participation is open to vocalists and instrumentalists from middle school age through adult. The Praise Team rehearses on Tuesday nights at 7:00 pm in the PLC.

Handbell Choir

The handbell choir is our true melting pot. From young to old, men and women, traditional service and contemporary service, experienced ringer and novices. It truly is a blessing to hear and be a part of this musical ministry. The handbells play at select services (both contemporary and traditional) throughout the year, including the big church holidays. Handbell rehearsals are Thursdays at 7:00pm in the music room.

Instrumental Music Offerings

All types of music instruments and talents can be used to enhance worship. If you or someone you know plays a musical instrument and would be interested in playing a solo or duet piece during the offering, let our Director of Music Ministry know!
