Music

July 29th, 2015
Music at Salem Lutheran Church is an integral and cherished part of worship. Congregational song, through liturgy and hymn singing, forms the greatest part of our music in worship. Traditional hymns and songs combine with more contemporary music to create a traditional, yet eclectic worship. Our fine organ together with a variety of other instruments helps lead our song.

Emphasis is placed on spiritual growth, fellowship and enjoyment through music. All are welcome to sing with the choir.
