We use the Lutheran Service Book (2006) for our worship, and rotate through various settings of the Divine Service and Daily Office. Recordings of the liturgy settings are available here. Recent and upcoming bulletins are posted weekly on our website.
Please enjoy one of our virtual projects from Christmas 2020.
Contact our cantor, Dr. Priscilla Gabriel to learn more or get involved!
Open to anyone in middle school and older, the Senior Choir sings weekly for the Divine Service, following the communion service schedule. Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 pm in the sanctuary, or following the mid-week service during Advent and Lent.
For children in elementary school, this choir combines the Kodály Concept with the Royal School of Church Music’s Voice for Life program. Choir members grow spiritually as they develop an understanding of the texts they sing and are instructed in the meaning of the liturgy.
First Steps in Music
First Steps is an early childhood music and movement program for infants through five-year-olds, based on a curriculum designed by Dr. John Feierabend. Our current class offering is geared primarily towards two- and three-year-olds and their caregivers.
Composed of members of the regular choirs and additional volunteers, this ensemble sings for the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day services. Sectionals and full rehearsals are coordinated on a week-to-week basis during December.
Instrumentalists with at least two years experience are encouraged to play in worship. Brass & timpani ensembles are often organized for major feast days.
Rehearsing on an “as needed” basis, handbells support worship by accompanying the choir or liturgy.
