Music at First Lutheran

All are welcome

“Sing to the Lord a new song; sing his praise in the congregation.” Psalm 149

To praise and worship God is at the center of our Christian faith, and music is the glorious gift of God by which we can offer our praise and thanksgiving. Through music people's hearts are touched, their souls are stirred, and the gospel is proclaimed. God calls us to use our gifts and talents for ministry; to build up the body of Christ. If your gifts and talents are in the area of music, we invite you to serve in First Lutheran's ministry of music.


Our 80 voice choir divides into three smaller choirs, supporting all three worship services on Sunday morning.

  • Offers a special worship celebration of Advent Lessons and Carols in December and the Gallery of Living Art in March.

  • Offers a choice of rehearsals either Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. or Thursdays at 7:00 p.m.

  • Offers a faith community who rejoices and cares for each other.



Youth handbell choirs for elementary, middle school and high school meet on Sunday afternoons. The high school choir, the Celebration Ringers, takes a tour every year in June.

Our adult handbell choirs meet during the week. Carillon Ringers rehearse on Wednesdays at 6:00 P.M. and Joy Ringers rehearse on Thursdays at 5:30 P.M.

Instrumentalists throughout the year participate in worship by accompanying a choir anthem or special prelude and postlude. If you play an instrument, you are encouraged to speak with Eric Wicks, organist, to schedule an audition.
