Music & Art

Music

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.

Art

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.

This Week's Events...

April 8, 2020
  • Camino on Zoom

    April 8, 2020  10:00 am - 11:00 am

    Join us for Camino on Zoom Wednesdays at 10 am and 7 pm, starting, April 1st. Camino is the word for 'way' in Spanish. Early Christians were called people of The Way (of Jesus Christ). 'Camino' often refers to the Camino de Santiago or the Way of St. James, a pilgrimage route in Spain that concludes in the city of Santiago de Compostela. Camino also refers to variations on pilgrimages of the Way of St. James, and in the Christian tradition refers to a spiritual journey of uncertain endings.

    As a world community we have not faced a pandemic in over a century. As those who are sheltering at home, this is an unfamiliar way for us to live. Being isolated at home, and advised to keep a distance of six feet between us and others, this time is a new journey for each of us and an opportunity to ask ourselves how will we be changed by this experience.

    To give us a chance to check in with each other and be mindful of this new time as an opportunity to grow in faith, we are offering a time for us to gather. We will check in, share our joys and struggles of sheltering in place, and pray together.

    Join Camino on Wednesdays at 10 am or 7 pm.
