St. Margaret of Scotland Episcopal Church
Fellowship for Everyone
Episcopal Church in Sarasota Celebrating Christ with
Fellowship and Choir Music in Sarasota, FL
Music is a vital part of our worship lives at St. Margaret. Music can unite our hearts and souls as the body of Christ and express that which words alone cannot. Music can soothe the mind, heal the heart, calm and uplift the spirit. The primary “choir” at St. Margaret is the congregation – every member is a gift of God and contributes to our corporate voice in worship. Our additional choirs provide musical leadership to the congregation and our goals are to enhance Sunday morning worship, preserve and expand our musical traditions and illuminate the scriptures.
All of the choirs rehearse weekly, enjoying the social fellowship and spiritual growth as well as working continuously to improve their musical skills. All choir members receive a CD to practice with at home, so music reading, while helpful, is not required. New members are welcome at any time, and you may also join short-term to participate in special Easter or Christmas music.
The Praise Team leads the congregation in the Hymn of Praise and Gospel Sequence each Sunday. Rehearsals follow 9:30 a.m. worship on Sundays.
