Music & Art
The Evangelical Lutheran Worship and the With One Voice hymnals provide many of the hymns and liturgies. Alternate songs and settings may come from Sundays and Seasons:Guide to Worship and Planning.
The Adult Choir provides anthems at worship services throughout the year. They also prepare an Advent Cantata for one Sunday during the Advent season. For many years they have been participants in the Rochester Tuesday Musicale Community Choir Christmas Concert on the first Sunday in December. The Handbell Choir provides an added musical element at several services during the year.
Worship takes place in a modern sanctuary, highlighted by a stained glass cross window. Banners and sanctuary décor change seasonally as do paraments on the altar. A one of a kind series of banners, designed and quilted by the late Marcia Russell, depicts the creation story.
At times art or poetry are used during sermons and are displayed on screens. The sanctuary is flexible and may be rearranged during special seasons of the church year such as Advent and Lent.
