Music Ministry

Music Ministry

All are invited to become part of the Music Ministry by lifting your voice, ringing a bell, or strumming a guitar. Hymns, responses, and offertory music are all carefully selected to enhance the worship experience. The power of music is expressed so beautifully in Verse 2 of the United Methodist Hymnal #68:
How often, making music, we have found a new dimension in the world of sound,
as worship moved us to a more profound Alleluia!
 
There is always room for more singers, ringers, and instrumentalists.  You are invited to expand your own worship experience by considering participating in one of our music groups.  All you have to do is make your interest known to the various directors, and more details will be shared with you. Cina Crisara, our director of music, is also the director of the Chancel Choir, Trinity Singers and the Saint John's Singers.

Schedules and other directors' contact information is given below.

Join Us

Let every instrument be tuned for praise!

Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise!

And may God give us faith to sing always Alleluia!
