Music | Shepherd of the Lake

Welcome to Music at Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church! We gather on Sundays to sing together, join voices in a choir, or make a joyful noise with an instrument. With each one of these opportunities we remember that music is a gift of God to be celebrated. It’s our hope that you will find your place here, no matter your level of experience. Come with an Open Heart, to develop an Open Mind, and to invite others to God’s Open Table.
