Music in Worship

Music is an integral part of worship each Sunday morning and music is carefully chosen to complement the spoken word. Hymns, anthems and all service music is chosen and planned with liturgical themes in mind. The chancel choir meets regularly for rehearsal and features prominently in the 10:30 a.m. worship service as well as special services. Each service begins with an organ prelude in preparation for the ceremony to follow and ends with a postlude. Throughout the year various guest soloists, instrumentalists and choirs are invited to take part in worship. The 10:30 service is a sung Eucharist. Settings include those from Common Praise, Tilley Missa Nova in C, Haugen Mass of Creation, and, on occasion, gospel settings. Anthems are sung most Sunday mornings and are chosen with diverse styles and periods in mind. A choir made up of members of the congregation sing at funerals at St. John’s as well as in Sweeney’s funeral home.
