The Choir leads our worship and enjoys singing anthems from across the centuries, incorporating music from diverse traditions alongside the treasury of Lutheran hymnody. We rehearse every Thursday (during the school year) at 7:30pm and we welcome new voices. For those who enjoy singing but cannot do so on a regular basis, we also have a Sunday morning choir that sings about once a month, meeting at 9:15 am on select Sundays.
Our children meet at 9:15am in the choir room for a special music time before Sunday School. During this time we meet different instruments, sing together, play rhythm games, and often learn some sign language to go along with the songs we are singing.
Our newest musical group meets on Tuesday nights from 6:30-7:15 pm. Open to children from Kindergarten through 8th grade, we will be learning to sing in parts, and how to read music notation, as we prepare to share some music in the worship service.
We are beginning a free community concert series on Sundays at 1pm. We welcome our friends and neighbors to partake in the musical gifts that our artists present. Concerts take place about once a month, and our fall dates are September 18, October 30, and November 27. Stay tuned for more details about the artists and programs. All of the concerts in the 2016-17 season will be given to raise money for our food pantry.
We are blessed with a beautiful 1969 Beckerath organ, whose primary purpose is to lead our choir and congregation in song. It is a musical treasure and we hope to offer more opportunities for the community to hear it through our concert series.
God is the ultimate in creativity and we believe the church is called to be creative, too. We encourage one another to explore life with God through the arts and to experience the beauty all around us. We bring art into our worship space along with dance and drama. The walls of our gathering space are filled with changing art from our community and artists around the world.
