Music Ministry

 Here at St. Stephen’s, we believe that music is a means of prayer, worship, and spiritual encouragement – whether we are singing, playing, or listening. Our 9:00 a.m. service on Sundays is full of music, including the hymns and acclamations that are shared by the whole congregation, as well as special offerings by our choir and other musicians.

Our voice choir is an integral part of the worship life of St. Stephen’s. Guest musicians are often added to help us celebrate the Principal Feasts of Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, and All Saints. Our handbell choir provides music for services using our three octaves of handbells and hand chimes, in coordination with the voice choir. These choirs form the heartbeat of an exciting and dynamic ministry area.




Invitation to Join The Choir of St. Stephen’s!

As you think back over the year, perhaps you remember a Sunday when you left the service invigorated and nourished by a choir anthem or a hymn. Maybe you’d like to add your voice to the mix and join us in the choir.  Some of our members read music, others learn by ear, some have amazing voices and others are starting on ground level and learning how to produce beautiful sounds. Everyone’s contribution is essential.  If you have any interest in joining the choir, please contact our Music Director Anh Nguyen.  Rehearsals are Thursdays evenings at 7:30-8:30 and Sunday services are at 9:00 a.m. (warmup at 8:30 a.m.).

All are welcome to participate!

Handbell Choir

Our small but dedicated group of talented ringers rehearses once a week and provides music for worship at least every other month. We welcome new members of any age who read music, both to help us expand our repertoire to include more complex pieces and to enable us to participate in worship more frequently.
