Greetings from the Music Department of Alsace Lutheran Church
The Bible tells us to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. Well, you couldn’t ask for a better response to that than the music ministry at Alsace Lutheran Church. With two very talented and dedicated leaders along with the many faithful and talented volunteers, our music program is one of the many joys associated with our worship services. We have 9 different choirs that compliment our Sunday morning as well as our many special services. They cover a diverse range of musical styles and age groups and encompass the joy with which we lift our praises to the Lord.
Whatever your musical tastes or abilities, you will certainly find a place to share your voice or musical instrument and have a lot of fun at the same time! You don’t have to have “professional” quality talent, just a willingness to offer your praise to the Lord through music. Take a look at all the choirs we have to offer and see if you can’t find a place to join in and make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
