“Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise Him.  Praise the Lord with the harp;make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.  Sing to Him a new song, play skillfully, and shout for joy.”  Psalm 33:1-3

Martin Luther said, “Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.” Our music ministry is varied to appeal to a variety of “heart languages”. Four of our weekly worship services follow the pattern of Lutheran liturgy and traditional hymns that have blessed many for years, incorporating other musical styles and traditions. One worship service each week is a family service, utilizing contemporary structure and music along with some traditional hymns, led by a praise team.
