Music at St. Thomas


The St. Thomas Music Ministry dedicates its musical offerings to Almighty God.  It strives for excellence in its singing and playing, which enhances our worship experience. 

The Chancel Choir of St. Thomas, made up of adult voices, sings in worship each Sunday morning at 10:00 am in the church sanctuary. In addition to leading the hymns and service music, the choir presents anthems of the Anglican choral repertoire, works of well-known composers, early music, works from the Global church repertoire and music that crosses denominational traditions. The group sings unaccompanied literature, and accompanied music with the wonderful E. M. Skinner organ, and occasionally with professional instrumental ensembles. These dedicated singers meet on Thursday evenings for rehearsal and to share in supportive fellowship. The group welcomes all singers who have a love for great sacred music, a passion for Christian worship and a will to develop good musical skills. The Chancel Choir is directed by Director of Music, Rick L. Smith and accompanied by Church Organist, Joe Master.  Regular rehearsals resume Thursday, August 18th at 6:30pm.

The Bells of St. Thomas enhance our services with their hand bells and hand chimes.  Whether it be on a Sunday morning or at a Lessons and Carols Service or Easter, these ringers bring joy to those who listen to them throughout the year.

The Harmony Band  leads the congregation in the singing of praise music during our weekly Harmony service at 10 am in the Parish Hall. The congregation is encouraged to sing along and join their voices in praising God, using contemporary music. 

In addition to these regular musical offerings, St. Thomas conducts special services throughout the year.  The Chancel Choir, Celestial Choir and The Bells of St. Thomas present a Christmas Festival of Lessons and Carols in early December, with additional special music enhancing the Christmas Eve and Easter services.  Sung Compline is also offered on occasion.  In addition, we have special musical guests in our Harmony service throughout the year.

There are many ways for members of the parish to sing God's praise at St. Thomas.  We hope you will join us.  

Remember...Those who sing, pray twice!
