Lutheran Church of the Redeemer

Adult Music


The joyful mission of Redeemer’s Choirs is to lead the congregation in worship through hymns and liturgy, and to proclaim the Gospel through psalms, anthems and spiritual songs which underscore God’s Word as it is read and preached. Drawing on the rich Lutheran musical heritage and a wide variety of other musical traditions, Redeemer’s choirs reflect a diverse and growing congregation.

Redeemer’s choir welcome new members throughout the year. Each year offers a variety of musical services and concerts in addition to regular weekly worship. Participation in Redeemer’s choirs does not require membership in the church.


The Redeemer Choir – Our primary adult choir

Members are adults (high school or older) who love music, have pleasant voices, and are willing and able to learn and work as part of a team.

Participation includes Sunday services at 8:15 and 11:00 a.m.. We usually do the same music in both services. While a few singers sing both services, most do one or the other; on festival Sundays, we ask everyone to sing both services, as they are able.

Rehearsals are Wednesdays, 7:30-9:00 p.m. and  Sundays, 9:30-10:30 a.m. Each rehearsal has people from both the 8:15 and 11:00 a.m. services; they choose the one that is most convenient for them. The Sunday morning rehearsal provides a good option for people who travel during the week, or who have children in Sunday School. Wednesday night is a little more thorough rehearsal because of the extra half-hour.
