Music Ministries at Messiah Lutheran Church

 Music is a Treasured Gift from God! 

Messiah’s music ministries strive to make connections through God’s gift of music available to all ages, musical interests and preferences.

We worship in many styles and formats and as such, accompany and enhance each worship service uniquely. 

Worship is accompanied by pipe organ, piano, guitar, wind instruments, or praise band in keeping with the liturgy and tone of the service. Special music adds to the beauty and enjoyment of worship and is provided by the many adults, youth, and children involved in Messiah’s vocal and instrumental ensembles listed on this page.  

Get involved with Messiah’s music ministries! It’s a wonderful way for you and your family to worship God, grow in faith and connect with others.
