Music at St. Martin’s incorporates many musical styles and many people. At our 10:15 Sunday morning worship service (Eucharist) you will find traditional organ music and hymns, along with our beloved choir singing Psalms and anthems. We also have folk hymns and contemporary songs that are easy to sing accompanied by guitar and other instruments.
Children and youth will find opportunities to sing or play instruments at special times throughout the year. Our handbell choir provides another layer to music in worship. At special times during the year, such as Christmas Eve and Easter, we encourage everyone to join us in presenting the Hallelujah Chorus with our orchestra.
If you have a musical gift you would like to share, or you are interested in getting involved in one of our musical programs either occasionally or on an ongoing basis, we would love to hear from you!
Contact Denise, the Music Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
St. Martin’s Choir

Being a part of the choir is about making joyful music to God and no prior musical experience is necessary. Both adults and teenagers are welcome to join the choir. The choir meets weekly on Wednesday evenings for rehearsal and sings at the 10:15 am Sunday Eucharist.
O Christ Surround Me (performed June 11, 2017)
The Handbell Choir is a group of parishioners who meet to play handbells for the purpose of bringing lovely bell music into the life of our congregational worship. Being in the handbell choir is spiritually enriching not only for our congregation but also for those who participate in the group. Adults and teenagers are welcome to be a part of the handbell choir. The choir rings monthly for the 10:15 am Sunday Eucharist. No prior musical experience is necessary, as long as you can count to eight.
