The Senior Choir
Do you enjoy singing four-part harmony? You would be welcomed to join our Senior Choir! We rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7 pm until 8:30 pm in the choir room in the church building. Since we work on anthems for several weeks before we present them; sight-reading ability is not a requirement. We lead the 11 am church service with anthems, hymns, and other service music. If you are interested, let Jonathan Leonard know.
Occasionally, the Men’s Choir leads the 11 am church service. On the Sundays when they sing, we rehearse before the 11 am service in the choir room. We keep in contact via memos. If you would like to join this group, contact Mary Ward and she will send you a memo, too. The men would be glad to have you in their choir!
St. John’s Children’s Choir is for young people in grades K-5. This group practices on Sunday evenings (6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.) from September-May in the youth music room on the second floor of the Education Building. The children sing at both the 8:30 and 11:00 Sunday morning worship services, including Palm Sunday and Easter, as well as at the family service (7:00 p.m.) on Christmas Eve. The Children’s Choir also participates in the annual congregational Christmas program.
St. John’s Youth Choir is for young people in middle school and high school. This group practices on Sunday evenings (7:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m.) on the weeks that Youth Group is held (approximately every other week), and meets in the youth choir room on the second floor of the Education Building. Youth Choir sings on Christmas Eve, Easter Day, and a few other Sundays throughout the year. The Youth Choir also teams up with St. John’s New Spirit Praise Band to provide music for Youth Sunday, held in the spring of the year.
New Spirit Praise Band
St. John’s New Spirit Praise Band leads worship on Wednesday evening at 7 p..m (Mid-Week Joy) and on Sunday mornings at 8:30 a.m. in the Tree of Life Worship Center in St. John’s Education Building.
Being part of a handbell choir is like being part of a football team. Each person has a part; and when all the parts blend together, it’s like scoring a touchdown—very rewarding! We usually rehearse on Sundays after the 11 am church service in the sanctuary with extra rehearsals as needed. We ring at the 11 am service and other special services throughout the year.
