Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth
break forth into joyful songs and sing praises!
Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre,
with the lyre and the sound of melody!
With trumpets and the sounds of the horn
make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord!
Psalm 98:4-6

The Scriptures remind us that music is a wonderful invention of God.  The Music Ministry of St. James United Methodist Church provides a program of graded choirs that gives people of all ages an opportunity to grow in faith and in Christian leadership through music.  The Music Ministry is a comprehensive program that prepares our children, youth and adults for a lifetime of service to God and the Church.  We seek to create beauty and inspiration as we lead in worship.  We believe that music is a very effective tool in teaching Christianity and the Scriptures – and that the music of the Church is an offering to the glory of God.

The choir experience includes the teaching of the great hymns and anthems of the Church, skills in singing and reading music, and special activities of fellowship and service.  Each of our choirs is open to, and encourages, new members, both the greatly experienced and the sincere beginner.  The only qualification is a true desire to serve God and the Church.
