St. Mark's Choir & Handbells
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works. Sing unto the Lord, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.
I Chronicles 16:9, 23
O sing unto the Lord a new song: sing unto the Lord, all the earth.
Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.
Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.
Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord.
O sing unto the Lord a new song; for he hath done marvelous things. Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
Psalm 98:1a, 4
The Holy Scriptures command us to sing to God with joy. The choir of St. Mark’s joyfully leads in worship each Sunday, at the 10:00 a.m. service of worship. From the beginning of Christianity, music has been an integral part of worship. The Episcopal Church enjoys a long, rich tradition of choral music inspired by and created for worship. Here at St. Mark’s, singing is central to our worship.
The St. Mark’s choir is made up of individuals from all walks of life: men, women, young, old, singles, and couples. We seek out those who have hearts for God and love to serve others through the beauty of music. In addition to providing musical leadership at the 10:00 a.m. service of worship, the choir prepares special music for the festive and reflective seasons of the Church Year. This special music includes hymns, carols, anthems, and major works with instrumental accompaniment.
The St. Mark’s choir offers opportunities for Christian fellowship throughout the year. The choir members take care of each other and seek to help and support each other during times of joy and crisis. If you would like more information or would like to join the choir, please contact Tom Thompson, the choir director, by phone (281-545-1661) or via email email@example.com.
