OUR MUSIC MINISTRY
Music is integral part of the Lutheran Service
Our worship is enhanced by the music of the service, whether it is the congregation singing the liturgy, the organ playing the prelude, the choir providing an anthem, the Praise Team leading the Contemporary Service, the Youth Choir adding their joy, Handbells resonating through the church, or enhancements by brass, violin, guitar or flute.  Many talented people add to your worship enjoyment.
