Welcome to Music at Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church! We gather on Sundays to sing together, join voices in a choir, or make a joyful noise with an instrument. With each one of these opportunities we remember that music is a gift of God to be celebrated. It’s our hope that you will find your place here, no matter your level of experience. Come with an Open Heart, to develop an Open Mind, and to invite others to God’s Open Table.

Handbells are a unique instrument and require techniques ranging from moderately easy to those which require a bit of practice to perform well! Reading music is not required, but can be quite helpful.
Students who participate have an opportunity to meet new friends (from a safe-distance), participate in an ensemble, learn handbell ringing techniques, and rehearse music for future performance opportunities.
