Music is an important component of worship and community at Good Shepherd. Many parishioners of all ages make musical offerings to God as they sing in our three choirs. St. Augustine has often been quoted as saying that “those who sing pray twice.” Music at Good Shepherd, which is our concert series that we bring to the entire community of Rocky Mount, includes services sung by our own choirs as well as performances by outstanding local, regional, and internationally acclaimed artists and ensembles. All are welcome to join us in making music to the Glory of God.
