Martin Luther felt strongly about music: "I truly desire that all Christians would love and regard as worthy the lovely gift of music, which is a precious, worthy, and costly treasure given … by God.
We are blessed to have multiple Ensembles, Choirs and Instrumentalists in our community. It is a joy to serve and work together to attain what Martin Luther calls a precious, worthy, and costly treasure given by God. We are always ready to welcome someone new!
