St. Andrew enjoys a vibrant Music Ministry led by both the Chancel Choir and the Praise Band. The mission of the Music Ministry team is to enhance the worship service and to help people experience the joy of worshiping God through music.  The Chancel Choir sings a wide variety of musical styles including classic oratorios, spirituals and contemporary anthems.  The Praise Band plays contemporary Christian music, some of which has been composed by one of the members of the band.

 

The choir and praise band both play at our Sunday service from the Sunday after Labor Day through the beginning of June. The two groups collaborate from time to time to present music for special services, particularly in the spring for the annual Music Festival service.

 

The Children’s Choir sings periodically throughout the year.  The choir presents two cantatas each year, one at Christmas and another at Easter. Praise Band members often join in for the cantatas as well as other members of the congregation who are not full time choir members. An annual Men's Chorus sings an anthem during Advent while the women of the choir are busy with one of the church's main fund-raisers, Christmas Faire. Members of the congregation step up during the summer months to offer their talents in the worship service while the choir and praise band are on break.

 

The congregation also enjoys "Hymn Sing" Sundays where they are invited to sing their favorite hymns.
