Music and

Fine Arts

Music is how we worship

We have a variety of ways for all ages and talents to express our love of God through music and fine arts.  




Children in Music and Fine Arts

Children singing in church produce unparalleled music to our ears and irrepressible smiles on our faces.
  • Children from K3 through 5th grade have their own role in music ministry.  Split into three age groups, the choirs rehearse on Wednesday at 6:15 pm. 
  • The annual Christmas pageant and spring musical are major highlights for the children and the adults.  Church members of all ages pour their creativity into making magnificent sets and costumes. 
  • The spring musical this year will be "It's Cool in the Furnace," the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego!  

Adult Music and Fine Arts Groups

Chancel Choir - Come join our 40-member adult choir as we lead worship at the traditional worship service.  We sing many styles of music, from renaissance motets to gospel anthems.  Once or twice a year we present a major work with a professional chamber orchestra.  The first rehearsal for the season is September 8th at 7:30 p.m.

Praise Team - Our 20-member praise team sings at our 9 a.m. contemporary worship service.  If you listen to Chris Tolin, Lauren Daigel, or other Christian rock groups, this ensemble is for you!  Guitar, keyboard, and drumming skills are always in demand. We rehearse on Mondays at 7:15 p.m.

Handbell Choir - Ringing bells is a great opportunity for those who read music to contribute.  With five octaves of handbells, we have plenty of room for more ringers.  We rehearse on Mondays at 6 p.m. in the Sanctuary.  

Brass Ensemble - The sound of our brass ensemble on Easter morning and other times during the year is an experience to be treasured.  If you are from age 12 to 112, we have a chair and music stand for you.  

Concerts and Cultural Events

Music in all its forms is truly a gift from God, and we encourage the development of musical skills from an early age.
  • From an Irish tenor who toured with Celtic Thunder, and a nationally-recognized soprano from the Sante Fe Opera, to the piano recital of a 6-year old church member, something musical is always happening here.
  • Musical talent among our members runs deep, including music educators, members of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, and teens in the Milwaukee Youth Symphony.  Their gifts often inspire us during worship services.
  • Through our Chancel Choir Scholarship Singer program, we have a strong connection to the music programs at University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. 
  • Check out the Livestream lineup from Fall 2020 and Spring 2021.  Look for the Fall 2021 schedule soon.
