Music is a vital ministry to the parishioners of St. James’. With a powerful organ and the voices of believers echoing through the sanctuary, it’s hard not to feel connected to our Lord. We have a dedicated Chancel Choir that sings at the 10 AM service on Sundays, as well as many special services throughout the year. There is also a 3 octave handbell choir which rings during worship approximately 6-8 times per year. St. James’ has an historic carillon in the bell tower—the first complete carillon forged in the United States! There is a Carillon Concert Series every summer where we host local and international Carillonneurs.
Praise the LORD.Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Psalm 150:1-5
