sr choir 3 (best) 448x336


Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!  Come into his presence with singing!  The senior choir is a friendly group of men and women who love to contribute their talents to become an integral part of Sunday worship.  They often become good friends through this joint experience. 

We practice at the church on Thursday evenings during the school year from 7:30-8:30.  Sr-choir-w-violin-(distance)We have a special room for our choirs (senior, youth, and handbell) upstairs from the lobby with the slate floor.  It's called the "Dot Clark Music Room" in memory of our energetic, fun-loving former organist.  Dot Clark was our much-loved organist for more than 50 years!

The choir sings at the 9:30 worship service on Sundays during the school year.  Sometimes instrumentalists join the organ or keyboard for an especially "joyful noise".  We cordially invite you to join with us.

Bell Choir (happy person) 448x336


bell-choir-playing-BWThe LCC Bell Choir has been in existence for almost 20 years, starting out with a set of borrowed antique bells. With the help of our former pastor, Rev. Mobby Larson, and the Shoreline Ringers of St. Luke's Lutheran Church (who use our bells too), we have built an impressive set.  We have dubbed ourselves the "Belles and Beaux".

It is not necessary to know how to read music or even have any experience playing a musical instrument to join our group. There's always room for more and we welcome new ringers at any time during the year. Contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Belles & Beaux, Bell Choir Schedule

bells-with-musicEach Thursday evening from 6:15-7:15, we rehearse our music.  We play in church once/month. Sometimes we play twice in a month, or play two pieces in one worship service.  In addition, we play on the important services of Christmas Eve, Palm Sunday and Easter.

Although we take the summer off, some of us may play a piece for "special music" during worship in July or August.  Our fearless leader, Deb Betz, is talented and entertaining; we all have a lot of fun

There's a place ready here for you.  We'd love to have you with us!

A One-Minute Spiritual Exercise

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Written by CB

branch-and-the-blue-blue-sk"Sit as comfortably as you can, letting your legs and arms relax. Place one hand on your abdomen...breathe slowly, your hand rising and falling, for one minute. ...Attempt to focus on the presence of God as you relax.  Survey your surroundings as you breathe, and know that Christ is present with you in this very place; you do not need to look anywhere else to find him."


- excerpt from Right Here, Right Now:  Spiritual Exercises for Busy Christians, by Dr. Carstens and Rev. Mahedy"

The exercise above is the first one-minute exercise described in this book, and it is my favorite.  When I do this, I feel great awe at the fact that God is right there! And hand-in hand with that comes tremendous peace, knowing that I can lean on God if I need to.  No matter how busy we are, we can spare 1 minute.  This is a very good book, and it's in our church library.  I hope you'll try this exercise, and may the peace of God be with you.
