Music has been a very important role at St. John's for many, many years.  This tradition of praising God through music is evident today.  Listed below are the many opportunities that are available to praise God through song!  New members are always welcome!!!
St. John's Choir  ~  Director - Students from Morningside College    Pianist - Tyler Nordstrom  This choir meets Sept. - May.  Rehearsals are held Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm in the choir room.  Performances are typically during the 8:15 am worship service on the 1st, and 3rd Sunday of the month.  Please join us!!!
People of Praise  ~  Director - Rich Ziettlow    Pianist - Adam Curry   Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm in the Sanctuary.  This group leads our 10:45 am worship services in song each Sunday.  If you have a gift of playing a guitar, drums or another instrument, this would be the group for you.  They are always looking for new members to add to this worship experience.
Men's Chorus   ~  Director - Open    Pianist - Kay Koch   Our Men's Chorus rehearses on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am in the Choir Room.  Sept. - May  This group is small, but has a mighty voice.  They perform on the second Sunday of the month at the 8:15 am service.  Make a joyful noise!  Join the Men's Chorus!
Children's Choir  ~  Director - Christine McInnis   This choir is for ages 2nd grade through 6th grade.  Rehearsal is held on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm till 6:30 pm, September through May.  Christine has a magical way of getting these young people excited to sing fun, contemporary songs.  They sing once a month at varying services and are a true blessing whenever they perform.
Bell Choir: JuBellation  ~  Director - Open    We have a multi octave set of handbells and chimes.  For many years we have had this choir perform once a month, however, we currently are without a director.  If you would like to become involved with directing this choir, please call the church office at 546-8855.
St. John's Brass  ~  Director - Dave Renken, Brad Pick   The St. John's Brass has been around for many years and has built quite a reputation.  The name is a little deceiving, because we routinely have many wonderful brass players from throughout the community join us for performances.  The Brass Choir offers music during High Festivals, such as Reformation, Christmas Eve, and Easter.  They have also participated during Confirmation Services and 4th of July Parades.  Christmas Eve is probably their most notable performance, when they perform a 30 minute prelude to our 10:30 pm Christmas Eve Service, playing many recognizable Christmas Hymns.  It is a service that can't be beat!
If you would be interested in joining any of these choirs, please call the office (546-8855) or click Contact Us, so we can put you in touch with the appropriate people.
