Music and Arts at First
First Lutheran Church embraces the arts as an opportunity to Share Christ's Love. Children's choirs, praise teams, instrumental groups, adult choir and bell choir all provide music for worship services. Instrumental and vocal soloists
share their musical gifts during worship and other events. Artists create visual expressions that bring meaning, richness
and texture to our worship experience. Drama and dance also provide ways to glorify God and share the love of Christ
There's room in the choir for you! Singers and instrumentalists are welcome to join any of the music ministries at
First at any time.

First Music and Arts Fund
The church council approved a resolution to establish a First Lutheran Music and Arts Fund. Steve Hawk, member of First Lutheran recommended establishing this fund as a method to provide for supplemental funding of the First Lutheran Music
and Arts program, specifically for expenses not directly provided for in the annual budget such as music, stage and prop supplies, special performance fees, expenses associated with special performances, church décor and artwork, seminars at First Lutheran, puppets, and anything else deemed necessary by Linda Schmidt, Director of Worhsip & Music and the Pastor. Money in this fund is not to be used for anything covered by the organ and bell fund or for capital improvement. If you have enjoyed the Big Band worship service in the park, children's musicals, jazz worship on Transfiguration Sunday, the Sanctuary Choir presentation of The Messiah, or special decorations and artwork, consider donating to this fund. Checks can be made payable to First Lutheran Church with a note in the memo line indicating the donation is for the "Music and Arts Fund."
