Music and art have played a significant role throughout Prince of Peace’s rich history. We deeply value the artistry that contributes to our vibrant worship services. There are several opportunities to get involved with various groups ranging from children’s choirs to instrumental ensembles and more.

Christmas Celebration Choir

High school students through adults are invited for an amazing time of singing praises to God. Thursday rehearsals from 7:00 – 8:30 pm in the Media Center of the Christian Life Center. We sing in worship services on Sunday mornings at 8:30 & 9:45 am, September – May.

Sing With Us This Christmas!

 If you love to sing Christmas carols and enjoy the musical excitement around this season of the year, we have just the place for you. Unite your voice with 100 others to share some of the very best in choral music. You will be surrounded by a 20+ piece orchestra, incredible lighting, video, dance, special effects, and a great community. All of this excitement is to celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

If you’ve ever sung in a choir, then you will qualify to be in ours! Music reading is helpful but not essential. We will teach you everything you need to know to make a wonderful contribution to the overall worship experience. We also realize that everyone has very busy schedules so we’ve tried to provide enough rehearsal time to prepare you to do your very best.
