Music at Bethlehem
Music Opportunities

The music of Bethlehem Lutheran Church is one of its great strengths and is central to our rich liturgical life.  It is dedicated to fulfilling our mission to lead the congregation in worship and share the gospel.

We offer our musical gifts trusting that God will speak through the music we offer to all.

There are many ways your musical gifts can be shared.  Please contact Marshall Jones to find out more.

Below you will find the latest Hymn Histories exploring three hymn  and the background of that hymn as well as its connection to our readings for the upcoming Sunday. 

For 2021-2022

Choir----We will have Bethlehem Lutheran Choir on Wednesdays at 7 PM. We will supplement that with a virtual choir once every 3 months as an opportunity to sing music that would require a larger choir to cover more parts.

Handbells--- We need 4 more ringers to restart GosBells. Please let me know if interested in ringing. In the meantime, there are opportunites to ring descants on hymns as part of mixture and opportunities for solo and small ensemble ringing listed in the Bethlehem Music News email. (Please contact Marshall if you would like to be added to the list for Bethlehem Music News.)

Mixture (tentative name and reference to a type of organ stop)----We will begin a new ensemble dedicated to leadership on hymns and liturgy through vocal leadership for congregational singing and the addition of instruments as appropriate for hymns and liturgy. This group will rehearse music for the upcoming few weeks of worship at 6:30 PM on Mondays.
