All God's critters got a place in the choir!
Some sing low, some sing higher,
Some sing out loud on the telephone wire,
And some just clap their hands
Or paws or anything they got.
The words to this delightful Bill Staines song say a great deal about what it means to sing in the Choir. 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, and here at St Mark’s, singing is central to our worship.
The St. Mark’s Choir is made up of and seeks out different kinds of "critters" from all walks of life: men, women, young, old, singles, and couples. At present there are about 10 choir members. The choir director is Steve Godowns. The Choir provides musical leadership at the 10:00 am service and prepares special music for the more festive seasons of the Church Year. This special music has included hymns, carols and anthems with brass accompaniment. The St. Mark’s Choir offers opportunities for Christian fellowship throughout the year. Choir members take care of each other and seek to help and support each other during times of joy and crisis. If this sounds like the group for you, come join the St. Mark’s Choir! Sing high! Sing low! And clap your hands!
