Music & Choir
Whether singing from the pew, singing or playing in a group or supporting music financially, we believe all have a place in the St. Thomas Music Program. Here are a few ways to get involved:
St. Thomas Choir – composed of 15-20 adults who sing weekly for the 9:30 service. We rehearse Wednesdays at 5:30 pm. A friendly bunch. Come sing with us!
Handbell Choir – about 9 ringers and a three-octave set of Malmark handbells. We ring in church about once per month for in-person and virtual services.
St. Thomas Chorister Program – for children aged 5-18. We use world-class techniques for teaching singing, liturgy, and leadership.
St. Thomas Music Fund – has brought a new set of handbells and many musicians to St. Thomas. Please consider making a donation today.
