Music

The St. James Choir is open to all singers, high school age and older. We have the privilege of leading the parish’s worship on Sundays at 10 am, as well as for other special services throughout the year. Singing the hymns and songs of our faith, as well as a variety of choral literature, the choir seeks to grow musically and spiritually as we rehearse, fellowship and worship together. Please consider joining us! Rehearsals are in the Sanctuary on Wednesdays at 7 pm; 2016-2017 rehearsals begin on Wednesday, August 24, 2016.  Contact the church office for additional information.
