Music is important at St. John the Divine. Virginia R. Scott is the Minister of Music. She leads two handbell choirs and the Chancel Choir. The Divine Joy Handbell Choir introduces new ringers to handbells. Many go on to join the Divine Jubilation Handbell Choir.
In 2015, St. John the Divine received a pipe organ for our worship space. The sound fits our space in a marvelous way.
