Music Ministry

“…next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise.”
Martin Luther

Music, especially singing, has been inextricably linked to our story as God’s people. All of God’s people have sung throughout recorded history. The Israelites sang after their deliverance from Egypt. The Psalms, the Bible’s hymnbook, testify to the link of story to song: “Your love, O Lord, forever will I sing; from age to age my mouth will proclaim your faithfulness.” (Psalm 89:1). While Scripture and Christian history attest to the gifts of instruments and dancing, the human voice has remained central to our worship and celebration of God as a community!

At First Lutheran Church we are blessed with our rich music ministry including opportunities for people of all ages.
