music at st. mark's

Music and worship are woven together at St. Mark's. 

Our Sunday morning worship blends the hymns of our tradition with accessible service music and some more contemporary worship songs. We believe worship is about God and we seek to include as many people in this experience of worship as we possibly can.  Therefore our music is approachable and easy to sing for everyone.


Our music program continues to develop. Below please find more information about current ministries.


The Choir Program: 

Our choir is made up of volunteers from our congregation. The choir generally sings each Sunday during the 11:00 Service. 

Choir rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings beginning at 5:30 P.M. We are always looking for new singers! 

Anyone interested should contact Kate Amatuzzo for more information: kamatuzzo@saintmarkserie.org


The Bell Choir Program:

St. Mark's has a long tradition of bell ringing. Directed by Craig Dressler, the Bell Choir provides special music at St. Mark's on a quarterly basis and on major holidays. Bell ringing requires no musical background, just a willingness to learn and have fun.

If you are interested in ringing or learning more, please contact Craig at cdressler@saintmarkserie.org
