The Music Ministry of Gethsemane United Methodist Church is:
- two part-time staff people: Judy Schulze, director of music and Roger Ask, accompanist (organ and piano);
- a small but dedicated group of people we call the Worship Singers who rehearse on the 1st, 3rd and 4th Sundays at 9:15am and sing at those services (summer rehearsal is at 9 am on those Sundays);
- and a group of musicians called the Praise Team who rehearse on Wednesdays (mid-August through mid-May) from 7-8 pm and enhance worship with their music on the 2nd Sunday of the months September through May.
- the voices of the entire congregation as we sing a variety of old familiar hymns and brand new songs.
Musicians in our congregation lead services a couple of times a year, and we also offer hymn sing Sundays during the year. We encourage other musicians from the congregation to share their musical gifts at any service as they are available. New members to either the Praise Team or the Worship Singers are always welcome. Please call the church or Judy Schulze (763) 792-2885 if you wish to know more on how you can become part of our music ministry.
