Some of Our Many

Ministries Music

Luther commended music
as an "excellent gift of God"

  • Adult Choir:  All adult voices are welcome. If you can’t join for the full year, consider joining us at anytime during the year as we prepare for special occasions (like Christmas, Easter, and other festivals). We sing, pray, and laugh together and welcome you to join us! (Thursdays: 7-8:30pm)
  • Joyful Noise Choir:
    Contemporary Ensemble: Adults and Youth (grades 7-12). Looking for a short-term opportunity to sing? This group sings more contemporary music, often with other instruments, including brass, guitar, woodwinds, and drums.
  • Jubilate Choir:  Kindergarten through 6th grade: Jubilate Choir is the Worship Skills portion of LOGOS – focuses on providing opportunities for children to be Worship Leaders – singing in the choir, learning about liturgy and hymnody, creative interpretations of scripture, etc.
  • Praise in Time Instrumental Ensemble (PiT):  All ages and instruments. PiT plays occasionally in worship, rehearsing a few times prior to each appearance. Typical repertoire is praise and worship band literature.
  • Instrumentalists/Soloists:
    Accompanies hymnody and liturgy; may play/sing solo music to enrich worship service.
