Music

Music has always played a very important role in the life of those who follow God, and it has been a cornerstone of St. Andrew for almost thirty years. As we build upon the firm foundation of Christ through a rich history of quality church music, we have a diverse group of talented musicians in multiple styles that serve faithfully in our music ministry.

Music remains a primary way that we can hear the word of God and experience God’s love. 

 

Traditional

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. This long tradition is lived out every week in our Saturday night and Sunday morning services in the Sanctuary led by Taylor Davis, our Director of Music and Worship Arts.

 

Contemporary

In 2012, St. Andrew added to the breadth of musical styles with contemporary worship as we launched services in Smith Worship Center. Contemporary Worship Curator Josh Miller leads this style of worship each week with a live band. Our contemporary team has also introduced Night of Worship, on select Sunday evenings, for our community to more deeply explore the meaning of worship.
