The music leaders at First are among Nebraska’s finest educators and performers and no matter which style you prefer, you will find enthusiastic volunteer musicians that will lead you in an inspiring worship experience.
Our Adult Choir ministers through music from September through May on Sunday mornings. They also sing longer works for holidays and other special events. Rehearsals are held on Sunday mornings from 9:30am – 10:10am, upstairs in the music room. The group loves to sing and share the message of the Gospel through music! For more information, please contact choir director Kay Dickinson.
First Lutheran Church Bell Choir, directed by Karen Fenne, also provides anthems from September through May at our Sunday morning worship services. This choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 8:00pm.
First Lutheran Church has two different Praise Bands that lead worship on Sunday or Wednesday. If you are interested in joining either, please contact Vince Krysl, Director of Praise Bands.
The Sunday Morning Praise Band leads worship at the 10:15 worship service. They lead the congregation in a mix of folk, gospel, country, and contemporary music.
The Wednesday night 6:15 praise band is focused on youth participation. Any youth or adults who are interested in singing or playing on Wednesday nights are welcome. The group rehearses at 5:30 p.m. before the service. Any instruments, vocal ranges, or abilities are welcome!
First Lutheran Church has a strong musical heritage that is apparent, not only in the formal music ministries, but in the talented members of the congregation who provide special music throughout the year. These presentations include vocal and instrumental solos and groups, collaborations with the praise bands or choirs, liturgical dance, and more!
If you feel called to share your talents with the congregation at any of the services at First Lutheran, please feel free to contact Vince Krysl from our Worship and Music Committee.
