Music has always been an integral part of worship at St. John’s. Through the years we have been blessed with members who value and support music in our service – realizing that music adds another dimension to the spoken word.
We are fortunate to possess a Hallman Pipe Organ which adds richness and fullness to liturgy, hymns, and congregational singing. As well, several years ago we purchased a Yamaha Grand Piano to provide accompaniment for services, choirs and also is used during the Rotary Music Festival. Many young people have boosted their musical training playing on these two instruments.
We also purchased a 3-octave set of Malmark Handbells which adds another dimension to our music worship. A Handbell Choir has been part of our church since 1990 and continues at present. Our handbell choir includes members from youth to grandparents!!
Vocal choirs have been in existence in many forms for adults and youth under numerous directors. The choir’s purpose is to support regular services and provide music for special occasions in the church year. (i.e. Christmas ) Currently we have an adult choir which meets weekly to prepare music for upcoming seasons.
