Music at Zion

Amazing Grace - How Sweet The Sound




"Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world." - Martin Luther



Zion Lutheran Church has two active adult choirs and a contemporary worship group that prepares music of different genres to enhance the worship life of Zion's congregation 🎵 



The Chancel Choir aids in worship at the 10:30 service from September to June except when the contemporary group leads worship. They prepare unison, 2-part, 3-part, and 4-part mixed chorus music appropriate to the Sunday or Season. They practice Wednesdays in the chapel from 7:30 to 9. New members are always welcome. Ability to read music, while helpful is not required.


The Handbell Choir provides special music on certain occasions about 6 times a year. Zion has 5 octaves of Malmark handbells and 4 octaves of Malmark handchimes. Many techniques are used to produce different sounds and rhythms. Some music is used with the Chancel Choir. They practice Wednesday from 6:30 to 7:15 in Room 109 on the ground floor. New members are welcome. Ability to read music is not required. Ability to count at least to 6 is pretty much essential.




The Contemporary Worship Group leads worship usually at the 10:30 service on the third Sunday of the month. Rehearsals vary at the convenience of the group. Contemporary Christian music is used, often accompanied by drums, guitar, piano, etc. 


New members are always welcome. If you have a particular talent, such as ability to play a musical instrument, reach out to a member of the music staff. Solos, group performances, and accompaniments are most welcome. 

Vocal and handbell music leadership is provided for children when there is enough interest 🔔
