Judith Love, Director of Music
Music is at the heart of our congregation. There are many opportunities listed below for members and others to participate in or music worship. St. Mark's has a large music program that includes the senior choir, the youth choir, the children's choir, the handbell choir and our legendary pipe organ. All choirs break for the summer months but we do have volunteers to do vocal and/or instrumental solos for this season. Our Music Director is Judith Love. Please contact her through the church office. She will be happy to know that you are interested in assisting with this ministry.
