Choir

Adult Choir

Rehearsals on Wednesday from 6:00 - 7:00 PM. Choir practice is canceled the third Wednesday of every month because of the St. James Food Pantry distribution.

The choir performs at the 8:30 and 11:00 AM worship services three out of four Sundays from September through May and on selected Church holidays (Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday.)

Men's Choir

Rehearsals on the second Wednesday of every month from 7:00 - 7:30 PM in preparation to perform at the 8:30 AM worship service the following Sunday.

Women's Choir

Orchestra

Orchestra

The St. James Orchestra rehearses on the second Thursday of every month and performs the Prelude at both the 8:30 and 11:00 AM worship services the following Sunday.

Hand Bell Choir

The hand bell choir currently has a waiting list for those wishing to join. Please contact the St. James Music Director Mark Lindvahl for more information.

Second Sunday Singers

The Second Sunday Singers choir - which perform at the 8:30 and 11:00 AM worship services on the second Sunday of each month from September to May - is a casual group of vocalists who simply like to sing and whose membership changes each month!

Not everybody has the time to commit to becoming a regular St. James Choir Member. The only rehearsal, therefore, takes place at 8am in the sanctuary on the same Sunday as the worship.
