music ministry 

Martin Luther said: "Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world."


Music has always been a rich tradition in Lutheran worship. The congregation is an integral part of worship as the people sing the liturgy and hymns which speak to the liturgical season and the scripture lessons for the day.


Choirs lead and enrich the worship life of the faith community.  All rehearsals begin September 2019 and finish up at the end of May 2020.
