Calling All Singers!

If you love to sing, there’s no better place to make “a joyful noise,” challenge yourself musically, and become part of the St. Mary’s community than the St. Mary’s Choirs! Their joyful mission is to proclaim God’s Word through hymns, psalms, anthems and spiritual songs from a variety of musical traditions. New members are welcome in both the Junior and Adult Choirs!

The Adult Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings in the choir room from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. and sings most Sundays at the 10 a.m. service and at special musical services throughout the year. Adult Choir rehearsals resume on Thursday, Sept. 5 at 7:30 p.m.

All young people age 6 and above are invited to join the Junior Choir. Rehearsals are on Thursdays from 6:30 – 7:15 p.m .in the choir room. The Junior Choir sings at the 10 a.m. worship service once a month during the school year, and at special services for Christmas and Easter. Junior Choir rehearsals resume on Thursday, Sept. 12 at 6:30 p.m.

If you are interested in lending your voice to the music ministry at St. Mary’s, please join us at rehearsal, or contact Kirsten Johnson.

Looking forward to a great year of singing!
