Music Ministry

Music plays a vital role in worship at St. Michael. Our music ministry consists of adult choirs, handbell ringers, and youth music ensembles. Led by Music Director/Organist, Ryan Peteraf, the music ministry sings and rings for Sunday worship services, as well as leading various cantatas and special concerts throughout the year. In the past, our ministry has raised thousands of dollars for charities, as well as a plethora of food donations for local food pantries.


Do you like to sing, ring, or play your instrument? We'd love to have you join!
