Music @ Immanuel
Music is one of God’s most powerful gifts. It can reach the hardest of hearts when nothing else can. It can sooth broken hearts and compel people to action. When music is combined with the Gospel, we have an explosive combination. Music IS ministry. Music ministers to both listeners and performers. There is no richer musical heritage than that found in the Lutheran church. This is your opportunity to share your special gift of music. You will be a blessing to many, and in return, God will bless your efforts.
To God be the glory!
