Making Music Together

Browse a sample of our musical offerings on our Vimeo Page: 


The Sanctuary Choir rehearses weekly, and sings approximately two-three times per month. Material ranges from unison hymn stanzas to four (or more!)-part choral anthems -and everything in between. Anyone who enjoys singing is welcome to join-there are no auditions, and the ability to read music is not required.

Below is an example of a musical offering as sung by our men's choir on March ​24, 2019.


The Handbell Choir rehearses weekly and rings approximately 1- 2 times per month. Lord of Life owns three octaves of Schulmerich handbells, and in addition to bell anthems, the choir has begun to enhance the liturgy as well, which adds a nice color to the service. Music-reading ability, while helpful, is not required.

​​As part of our Confirmation instruction, students ring in a Handchime Choir. An easier instrument for the novice and often smaller-handed ringer than handbells, the chimes provide an opportunity for the students to get a taste for music, leadership, and collaboration.

lnstrumentalists are also an important asset to our worship. lf you play an instrument and would like to participate, please contact the office for whom to speak with. 

Take a listen to a 2016 Christmas Eve candle lit service recording of the congregation singing Silent Night accompanied by our Handbell Choir.

 Silent Night - December 24, 2016

Organ and Pianos

On the downstairs level of the Sanctuary there is an acoustic Boston grand piano. While it is a little grand (the length is only 5' 1-.5"), the piano produces a full, resonant sound that is joy to play, both for congregational singing as well as instrumental music.

Upstairs in the balcony, there is another piano. This one is an electronic Celviano, and is widely useful for all sorts of accompanying, from solo voice/instrument to ensemble to full choir to congregational singing.

Also located in the balcony is the organ. Built by Martin Ott and installed in 2005, the pipe organ has only 1-8 stops over the two manuals and pedalboard, but with full couplers and the acoustics of the Sanctuary, the organ has plenty of power.

Piano Concert - Featuring Dr. Mark Laverty

The concert featured the piano works of the Three B’s - Bach, Beethoven, Brahms – and Martin Luther. It included sacred and classical selections, including Toccata and Fugue in D Minor and English Suite in G Minor by Bach, the ‘Moonlight’ Sonata by Beethoven, a Prelude on ‘A Mighty Fortress’ and shorter pieces by Brahms.

servING the deaf and hard-of-hearIng 

In order to  build a bridge and provide equal access to both the deaf/hard-of-hearing and the hearing communities, we have independent sign language interpreters during our 10:30 am services, as well as special events.
