“Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.” —Martin Luther

Music in the Lutheran faith tradition is not seen as an ornament or flourish to the liturgy and worship service, but rather holds an integral part in proclaiming the Word of God.

We believe that music invites everyone into the service of the liturgy, each participant bringing one’s own unique gifts and talents to the worship service. Our musical gifts help to proclaim God’s Word and adorn God’s sacraments. Above all, we use our music to glorify God.

Here at St. John’s we encourage all to be a part of this celebration.

For cultivating and using this art, we provide:

  • Various choirs and instrumental groups for people of all ages.
  • Opportunities for youth and adult instrumentalists and vocalists to lead and enhance worship.
  • Opportunities for participation in special programs on festival days, at concerts, and activities throughout the year.
  • Music in which all worshipers can glorify God in hymns, psalms, songs, and chants.

See Our Choirs & Ensembles page for information about St. John’s choral and handbell choirs and instrumental ensembles.
