Make a joyful noise to the Lord! This might well be the theme of the musicians at St. John. Each person who sings, plays bells, or plays an instrument does it because they love to “make a joyful noise to the Lord.” We worship God by practicing weekly, by enhancing the worship services on Saturdays, Sundays and special services along with special musical presentations.

Senior Choir

Led by Director Tori Hicks, the Senior Choir rehearses on Wednesdays from 7:30 - 9:30pm and sings three Sundays a month at our Traditional Service and one Sunday a month at our Contemporary Service. In addition, the choir performs a Cantata once each year. There is always room for more members. Come try us out any Wednesday. You will experience music education, lasting friendships, and lots of fun! Contact Tori at 815-439-2320 for more information.

Ellen Goodwin directs our Praise Team which leads our 11:00am Sunday Contemporary Service. Vocalists, guitarists, and other instrumentalists are always welcome to join us to provide a forum for contemporary worship. Practices are held every Thursday, from 7:00 - 9:00pm.
