The Music Program
YOUNG PEOPLEThere are lots of musical opportunities for people of all ages at Saint Andrews! We love watching our children and youth grow spiritually as they develop and share their musical talents through the Joy Ringers, vocal performances, and solo and small group instrumental performances. Their musical contributions are a critical part of regular worship service, and they are especially important during our Christmas Eve and Easter celebrations!
High-schoolers and adults of any age are welcome in the Chancel Choir which leads the music in worship services each week. The choir sings a wide variety of music including standard hymn tunes, spirituals, contemporary and classical pieces, as well as anthems from other nationalities and languages. The Chancel Choir practices on Thursday evenings.
The Canticleer Ringers practice more advanced techniques in ringing hand bells and offer their heavenly sound once a month in worship. The Canticleer Ringers also practice on Thursday evenings.
Members, friends and families also offer solos, duets or small group vocal and instrumental music throughout the year.
Youth Group gathers for activities and special events of interest to our teens. Frequent service projects are an integral part of the youth ministry. The youth often participate in Worship, hold an annual Soup and Salad fundraiser to combat local hunger, shop for local needy families for Christmas, volunteer for the Community Dinner and Sunday Lunches programs, bake desserts for Meals on Wheels, and conduct an “alternative gift fair” at Christmas to support international efforts to eradicate hunger and disease.
