Music

The music for worship at The Lutheran Church of the Ascension is carefully selected each week to move people to rejoice, to repent, to feel sorrow, to reflect, and much more. Our hymnody for each service primarily comes from the Lutheran Service Book, and the music ranges from the early Baroque Era to modern music.

Two great attributes of The Lutheran Church of the Ascension are the reverberant acoustics paired with the beautiful aesthetic qualities of the sanctuary. The acoustic makes the space wonderful for singing, speaking, and playing other music. The choir currently rehearses at 8:45 am Sunday mornings before the 10:00 am Divine Service. We go over several anthems during that time and also service music because the choir serves as a guide to the congregation for unfamiliar music. If you are interested in joining, please e-mail the music director.
