Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing. [Psalm 100:1,2]
Music is very important at St. Christopher's. There is a wide range of opportunities to become involved both as a performer and to enjoy the gifts of our members.
The choir is an active part of the service from September through the end of May. We rehearse on Wednesdays from 4:30 – 6:00 pm, and we welcome all who wish to sing with us. Each of us is called upon to actively participate in our service music and hymns through vibrant singing as a worshiping community. The music of our Christian tradition is a vital part of our Eucharist and other services. Participation in the song of the assembly is an important way to express prayer and praise during our liturgy.

Members with particular musical talent and interest assist with the musical leadership of the choir as a member or instrumentalist. The choir is a significant element of our music ministry, singing at the 9am Sunday service as well as for special services. We strive to present choral music that both expresses our praise of the Lord and contributes to the prayerful atmosphere of our services.
In 1988, twelve members of St. Christopher’s started a sing-a-long ministry to care centers and assisted living facilities. This is, and has been, a fun time for the residents and us as well as a rewarding time for us. These outings are usually from October through April, and occasionally we do a sing-a-long at St. Christopher’s as well. If you like to sing the “oldies” and would like to join us we would love to have you. Some of our singers don’t sing; they help the residents find the songs on the song sheets. All are welcome.
