For many years, St. Andrew has been known for its traditional worship. From adult choirs, youth choirs, children’s choirs, handbells, ensembles and even an orchestra, we believe that we can encounter God meaningfully through traditional worship.

As we cherish our customs, we also embrace innovation. The word "tradition" is not the maintenance of rigidity but shared, habitual customs that represent our family. We share these sacred values and delight in the fruits from each new season in our Saturday night and Sunday morning services in the Sanctuary led by Taylor Davis, our Director of Music and Worship Arts.

At rehearsals, all children gather together for a few minutes to begin before separating into respective choirs. The children have several opportunities to share their music as a combined choir, including select church services, the spring musical, and the Family Advent Celebration.

You can join at any time during the school year! No prior experience is required. For more information, contact Sarah Brammer.


Handbell Choir

Rehearsals: Sunday afternoons, 1:00-2:30 p.m. Break during summer months.

Bells of St. Andrew, an advanced adult bell choir, is an integral part of traditional worship at St. Andrew. Under the direction of Lynn Hayes, the group regularly participates in our worship services, as well as special programs and occasional community events.

While participation in this group is open to all, an interview with the director is required. Prior ringing experience or participation in other musical groups is helpful but not mandatory.

For more information, contact Megan Gackle.


During a Bell Blast weekend, students fellowship and learn at a Saturday workshop then ring bells in worship on Saturday night and Sunday morning. They learn the basics of ringing bells and chimes while expanding musical skills and increasing confidence in reading music.
