Music is a servant of the Gospel and a principal means of worshiping God.
Congregational song gathers the whole people
to proclaim God's mercy, to worship God, and to pray,
in response to the readings of the day and in preparation for the Lord's Supper.

The mission of the music ministry at Trinity is to lead the congregation in liturgies that glorify God. To support this, adult choirs, handbell choirs, and children's choirs work diligently to prepare the finest music in a variety of styles and genres. In addition to anthems based on the lectionary, choral ensembles regularly lead the congregation liturgically in the form of psalm settings, liturgical chants, service propers and hymns. Trinity’s handbell choirs often participate in musical offerings during the prelude, the gathering of offerings, and the distribution of Holy Communion.
As the program continues to grow in service to the church and the community, we keep in mind that our function in the Lutheran tradition is to help and serve the congregation; to lead the congregation in the worship and praise of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is an awesome and rewarding responsibility!
