“Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!” Psalm 95:1-2
Music has been an integral part of the Lutheran liturgy since Luther first nailed his 95 theses to the church door in Wittenburg. Did you know that several of our hymns were written by Luther?
The Chancel and hand bell choirs would like to invite you to come and make a “joyful noise” with them this fall. We love our small group of dedicated singers and ringers, but we have plenty of room for more! Please join us on Wednesday evenings for rehearsals. Hand bells will be starting Sept. 4th as well.. Hand bell rehearsals will follow directly after Chancel Choir.

The Worship and Music Committee helps further the Mission of Advent: “So All May Know Christ’s
Love“. Music is a form of worship that teaches us the gospel. The melodies and phrases we sing make
our faith memorable. St. Augustine is reported to have said, “Those who sing pray twice”. Singing allows
our hearts to speak to God in ways that enhance the Word of God.
How the Worship and Music Committee support our mission:
The committee provides the structure and format of our worship service.
The committee strives to blend contemporary with traditional songs.
With the assistance of the Pastor, hymns are selected to enhance the theme of the day.
The focus is to stay within the framework of Lutheran Theology and tradition.
