Serve in Support of our Worship Ministry

Worship Welcome Team

Sunday morning worship is a special time in the life of the local church. It takes a number of volunteers to provide a quality worship experience for all who join us each Sunday. We need people who are able to help usher as well as check people in (temperature check & registration verification). Please let us know if you would like to be a part of the team.

Worship Music

The Lutheran tradition has always placed great importance in singing praise to the glory of God. Wherever and whenever Christians gather, they sing songs of praise, songs of confidence and faith, songs of confession and contrition, songs of exile and rebirth, and songs of sin and salvation. The gift of song in the Lutheran church serves as a means by which the Christian proclaims thanksgiving for the victory and salvation from sin won through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

If you have vocal or instrumental talents that you would like to share in the worship of our Lord please let us know.
