Music has always been central to Lutheran worship and liturgy, and this is clearly exemplified in the music program of Messiah Lutheran Church and School.

Welcome to the ministry of music at Messiah Lutheran Church!
Every worshiper at Messiah Lutheran church is a minister of music. When we raise our voices in song to God during worship, we are minstering to ourselves and others! So, come worship with us and raise your voice in song!
Additionally, the Messiah Church Choir is open to everyone from freshman in high school and on up! We rehearse on Thursday nights during the school year from 7-8:30 pm. I invite you to experience the closeness to God you can experience when, in rehearsal, we join with others in preparing for worship. The worship experience is a much more powerful experience on Sunday when time has been spent during the week preparing for worship.
Our church choir sings music in four part choral harmony. The style is best described as whatever communicates the message on that Sunday - which may take the form of a rousing spiritual, a reflective ballad, or even an historical reflection. The choir sings on most Sundays (usually taking one Sunday off per month to worship down in the pews with other family and friends). The choir sings mostly at the 11 am worship servivce and occasionally at the 8:30 am service.
The Messiah Joy Ringers is the Handbell Choir of Messiah Lutheran Church. This choir rehearses on Monday nights at 7 pm.
High schoolers who are proficient at playing guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, or drums are encouraged to contact our Youth Director, Mrs. Kate Ilg. This Praise Band instrumentation will be used occasionally throughout the year.
Finally, we're always looking to praise God through the special music of individual instrumentalists. Are you proficient at an instrument? Would you like to offer a reflection as a way to give back to God the gift of music? Contact our Music DIrector for information.
Once again, we welcome you into music ministry at Messiah! Come worship and praise the Living Lord with us!
