Here at St. John's we offer two worship experiences – Traditional and Contemporary. God speaks to many of us through songs and we have an amazing variety of music to keep you coming back for more!
During the Traditional Services, the Chancel Choir will uplift you with vocal and instrumental musical talents from within our congregation and invited guests. The music is chosen from the traditional Methodist Hymnal as well as carefully selected inspirational alternatives.
The Contemporary Praise Band offers upbeat Christian music. Many songs will be familiar so you will be able to jump right in and sing along. If you don’t know the words, no problem. They will be available on several screens.
We See You...
Men's Quartet from our choir singing acapella, Sweet, Sweet, Spirit. Thank you for blessing the congregation with your spiritual gifts — St. John's has so much talent on all levels! Left to right: Dick Zarfos Gene Stutman, Jim Lanier and Doug Heystek.
Dedicate an Anthem
You can now dedicate the Sunday morning anthem to someone special. Music is such a wonderful way to honor or bless someone. Each dedicated anthem is $10.00. If your choice of anthem is one we sing frequently then we can do them the following week. If your choice is a special request it may take up to 4 weeks for the choir to prepare, so be sure to get your requests in right away. Please be sure to sign up in the lobby at Sign-up Central and place your payment in an envelope and put into the box labeled "Dedicate an Anthem" (also located at Sign-Up Central).
