flags Music is essential to our worship and spiritual life at First Lutheran. We are passionate about music. From our accomplished choirs and organist to the 26-rank Casavant organ, we enjoy sacred music from various traditions and periods. True to our Lutheran heritage, congregational singing is an important part of our worship. Please join us as we enthusiastically lift our voices in praise and prayer!
