Worship & Music Ministry

“Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” Psalm 100:2

The mission of the Worship & Music Committee is to enhance our worship experience through the celebration of our Christian faith together. We do this by coordinating several participating groups who work together with the pastor. They include the altar guild, Eucharistic ministers, acolytes, lay readers, and ushers. We also work with musicians including organists, other instrumentalists, choir members and our contemporary music group “praise band”.

  • Organists, instrumentalists and singers provide musical accompaniment and leadership during our services using voice and instruments in traditional and contemporary settings.
  • Ushers hand out bulletins, welcome parishioners, and collect our monetary offerings and direct communicants.
  • Eucharistic Ministers assist Pastor with communion.
  • Acolytes (grades 5 and older) assist pastor with communion.
  • Lay Readers read the weekly scripture passages
  • Altar Guild maintains and sets up all the adornments in the sanctuary and orders the worship supplies.

You are invited to meet with us for this very important ministry of the Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer!! We have fun and there is so much we learn from each other. We’d love to have you join us at our meetings or to have you participate as one of the worship assistants listed above (we’ll provide training and assistance.) Please check the monthly calendar for meeting dates and times and come, or you can contact us to express your interest.
