St. James’ parish is blessed with a wonderful ministry of music that provides meaningful and moving accompaniment in the worship of God.
Forever Endeavor Contemporary Group
Forever Endeavor’s music is a blend of pop/rock and gospel styles, using keyboard, guitars, bass, percussion, and other instruments to accompany the congregational singing.
The musicians and singers strive to provide an uplifting, joyful praise and worship atmosphere in harmony with the popular trend of many churches. New members are always welcome to the group, which rehearses in the sanctuary on Thursday evenings. Contact the parish office to get involved.
The St. James’ Choir
The St. James’ Episcopal Church Adult Choir is a group of volunteer singers who provide choral accompaniment to the music at the 11:00 a.m. Sunday worship service. The choir’s beautiful music can be heard from September through May and at other major feasts and festivals in the church year, including Christmas, Lent and Easter. Over the years, the choir has become a close and affirming group of parishioners dedicated to leading worship.
Organist Jill Lewis accompanies the choir at each service and at rehearsals on Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 8:45 p.m. in Bartholomew Hall for fun, fellowship and repertoire building.
There is a continuing need for new voices. New members are always welcome and are cordially invited to attend rehearsals on Thursday evening.
