Music Ministry

Music groups at  First Lutheran express God's love through their voices and instruments while enjoying fellowship and many moments of laughter. If you share our desire to praise God and our Savior Jesus in music, please come join one (or more!) of our music groups. You don't have to be a professional, just someone who, as St. Paul wrote, likes to “make music in your heart.” (Ephesians 5:19) Be sure to get in touch with Justin Hipp, First Lutheran's Music Director!

Sanctuary Choir

The choir sings during the school year on Sunday mornings, usually at the 11:00 am service. Small ensembles and soloists play during summer and special choir music at Christmas and Easter. Rehearsals are Wednesday at 6:45 p.m.; schedule may vary during Advent and Lent.

Handbell Choir

Mark your calendars for the return of the handbells in Fall 2022. Please speak with Justin Hipp if you are interested in joining. All level ringers are welcome!

Instrumental Music

If you play an instrument, we invite you to join our brass, wind instruments, stringed instrumentalists, and percussionists in accompanying the choir and congregation, or in performing special worship music.  Rehearsals are scheduled based on the occasion; please let Justin Hipp know of your interest.
