MUSIC at St. Paul's

“Music indeed is the knowledge of apt modulation. If we live virtuously, we are constantly proved to be under its discipline, but when we sin, we are without music.” Cassiodorus, secretary to the Roman emperor Theodoric in the 500's



Welcome to St. Paul's! We hope that if you enjoy singing or playing an instrument, you will join us in our weekly praise and worship of the Lord. Below you will find information about music activities at St. Paul's. If you have further questions, please speak with organist and choir director Kathleen Prevost after the 10:30 service, or call the church at 704-289-8434.


The nursing home hymn sings are every 2nd Sunday of the month at 1 p.m., at Union Park Assisted Living, in Monroe, off of Circle Drive.  All are welcome to join.  It's great fun and the residents do love gift of music that is brought.  Call Kathleen Prevost at 704-289-8434 if you have any questions or would like to join.



The St. Paul's adult choir sings at the 10:30 service. During our regular season, we rehearse at 6:30p.m. on Wednesday evenings, unless otherwise communicated. Anyone is welcome to join our "summer" choir, which meets at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays to rehearse the hymns for the day.
