St. Mark's Music Ministry provides numerous opportunities to participate musically in the church.
For singers, there is the Senior Choir, the Joyful Noise Choir, and the Angelic/Cherub Choir. A new addition to the music program is the Messengers, the praise team, that leads contemporary religious hymns during worship usually on the third Sunday of the month.
Also, the handbell choirs, Chancel Bells and Family Bells, are an important part of the music ministry. As a result of the generosity of members anf friends of St. Mark's, the church has been to purchase handbells and handchimes as memorials. The handbell choirs usually perform during both regular and special services during the church year enriching our worship experience.
Instrumentalists are often a part of worship during special worship services as well regular services. In addition to member instrumentalists, St. Mark's Director of Music Lee Ferrier has invited guest instrumentalists to be a part of our services.
During May, as a part of Sunday worship, we celebrate our ministry of music with all the choirs participating. Music Sunday is a time for the church to recognize and honor those who have been a part of the music ministry of St. Mark's during the past year.
Lee is eager not only to share his musical gifts but also to encourage others to develop and share their musical gifts with the church.
