St. John’s Chancel Choir

St. John’s Chancel Choir, comprised of volunteers and professional singers, sings each week at the 10:50 a.m. worship service. Additionally, the choir offers leadership during special liturgical services, and offers concerts throughout the year. With a repertoire rooted in the Methodist faith, their music is drawn from a repertoire spanning multiple centuries and global traditions. All singers are welcome. Rehearsals take place after worship services on Sundays.

Handbell Choir

St. Johns Handbell Choir rehearses weekly on Sunday mornings at 8:30. News members are always welcome, and the ability to read music is not required. Come and support our worship experience by sharing in the joy of ringing.

 

Music for Children

Music for children is part of worship and Sunday school at St. John’s children. We strive to combine experiences using instruments, dance, body-percussion, and singing. Our children learn to raise their voices in song and participate fully in the Wesleyan music traditions.

 

Sanctuary Organ

The primary role of the organ in worship is supporting the singing of the congregation. St. John’s pipe organ combines a colorful palette of sounds and offers an eclectic variety of sounds to enhance the worship experience. The instrument was installed by the Austin Organ Company in 1921 (Opus 1036). A detailed stop list of the instrument can be found online. (https://pipeorgandatabase.org/organ/50191)
