Music Ministry

At St. Mark’s there is always a sense of excitement in the air each time we come together for worship. Our adult & youth choirs, contemporary worship teams, and handbell choir lead us in uplifting, high energy worship. There are musical opportunities for all ages at St. Mark’s.

The Choir of St. Mark’s
Classical sacred music, spirituals, folk and hymn arrangements are the focus of this adult choir. Love to sing? Come join the group for rehearsal on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. from Sept. — May. The group sings primarily for the 8:45 a.m. service.  

The Morning Psalm Praise Band
This band leads the contemporary worship service at 10:15 am on Sundays. The ensemble consists of guitar, vocals, keyboard, piano and drums.  

New Jordan Singers
This contemporary adult vocal ensemble rehearses on Wednesday nights. They perform on Sundays at 8:45 and 10:15 am.  

Jubilee Handbell Choir
The handbell choir performs for major festival services, Christmas, Easter and during Holy Week. The handbell choir, which is open to high school students and adults, rehearses on Monday evenings at 7:30 p.m. The choir uses 4-Octaves of Schulmerich handbells.  

Colla Voce Choir
This choir is for young people from 6th –12th grade. We provide special music for worship services and help lead congregational singing. This is a vibrant, energetic group who love to sing and show their love of God and their church through music. No experience is necessary to join Colla Voce. Sign-up is typically in the fall, however anyone may also just come to a rehearsal and join at any time of year. Rehearsals are Wednesdays from 4:45 to 5:45 pm from September to May. The choir usually sings at two services a month (mostly at 10:15 am). 

Joyful Noise Choir
This choir is for children in 1st – 5th grade and gives children a fun introduction to faith-based music. Choir rehearses once a week (September to May) and sings twice a month at the 10:15 a.m. Sunday service.  

St. Mark’s Sanctuary Organ
The Sanctuary organ was built and designed by the Rod Levsen Organ Company of Buffalo, Iowa, and was installed in 1993. It is presently three manuals and 30 ranks. This pipe organ is unique in that it transposes and has a self-recording device and computer capabilities.
