As we head into September, I want to say thanks be to God for the ministry of Peter Schmidt! Peter has been our Director of Music Ministry for a quarter of a century. This September marks his 25th year leading us in song at Good Shepherd. We will have a time in worship on Sunday, September 29 to say a public thank you for a job well done. My hope and prayer is that Peter is ready to serve another 25 years!
Peter clearly loves the Lord and loves leading us in worship. I enjoy watching him direct our chancel choir and special ensembles. He leads our contemporary band with such passion and energy. He “pulls out all the stops” for Christmas, Easter, and the festivals of the church year. He is generous with his time and the consummate team player. His encouraging presence is one that lifts me up time and time again. He is a great “shepherd” for our choirs; continually sending messages of thanks and encouragement for a job well done.
When you think of the strengths of Good Shepherd, I am certain that you will mention our music. And, I’m just as certain that you’ll think of Peter right away! But Peter is very humble. He continually reminds us that what he does is for the glory of God. And secondly, he reminds us that he is carrying on a great legacy of music that’s always been a part of Good Shepherd. As we enter September, we remind ourselves how God has blessed us in giving us such a great musician and friend in Peter Schmidt! Please reach out and share your gratitude this month.
