Martin Luther said, “Music is a fair and glorious gift of God.” In that spirit, we invite you to share your musical gifts as we worship God through singing and playing instruments in a vibrant, intergenerational, musical congregation.

Music is a central part of worship at Normandale Lutheran Church. The power of music helps us share ourselves and our talents as we worship God and build community. Whatever you play… however you sing… we boldly invite you to be part of one of our many vocal, instrumental, or dance groups!
