Music Ministries

O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
Psalm 95:1

Music is one of the ways in which we joyfully praise and worship God. We have a rich and diverse tradition of choral and instrumental music that spans all age groups, from the children's music programs to the Chancel and bell choirs to guest artists. We invite you to find a place in our music program to share your talent and express your spirituality. For more information about our music programs, contact Shawn Portell.

Music in a Great Place

Under the leadership of Shawn Portell, Director of Music/Sr. Organist, this series began in 1996 to provide music that would enhance the worship experience beyond what we are able to provide as a congregation. Throughout its history it has attracted hundreds of musicians, actors, dancers and choirs not only from the St. Louis community, but also from across the United States, Asia and Africa. This series is partially funded by the Dysart Fund for the Musical Arts at WGPC. Contributions in support of the series are always welcome.
