Lutheran Churches have a long musical heritage, and Beautiful Savior uses various individuals and groups to fill our Worship Services with music that is appropriate to the season and setting to enhance the edification of the worshipers.
Almost all services are led by traditional organ music. The organists lead the congregation not only in hymns, but in the mostly sung liturgy as well.
The Senior Choir is open to interested people from ninth grade up. The choir meets for an hour on Sunday afternoons at 12:00 except during the summertime break. The Senior Choir will sing during the Sunday services approximately twice a month with a strong emphasis on festivals and the preparatory seasons of Advent and Lent. Typical literature for the choir is 3 or 4 part music accompanied by the piano. No prerequisite of singing ability is required, just the desire to bring Glory to the Name of the Lord through song.
Solo / Small Group / Instrumental
Individuals or small groups are welcome to offer praise to the Lord either by song or with instrumental music. It is wonderful to hear the variety that a pure voice, string duets, brass ensembles, or the unique sound of bagpipes can add to the worship service. Anyone who is interested in serving the Lord with their talents in this way should contact either the Pastor or the Director of Music.
Beautiful Savior is blessed to own a four octave set of Schulmerich Handbells. At various times the church has had as many as two full handbell choirs (Jubilant Ringers and Golden Notes) and various small groups and solo ringers. In the past, the church choir has participated in community events such as Children’s Hospital’s “Breakfast with Santa”. Every year members look forward to the ringing of Silent Night by candlelight at midnight on Christmas Eve. No handbell experience is required, but ability to read music is recommended.
