Bluegrass comes to Faith Lutheran Church


For the month of October up until Reformation Sunday, Faith Lutheran Church will introduce a new liturgical setting for our worship services. We will be worshiping together using Bluegrass-style music for our sung liturgical responses. The Bluegrass Mass liturgical setting is influenced by American and Celtic folk music, blues, jazz, shape-note singing, and southern hymnody. This specific liturgy encapsulates the same motives Martin Luther presented in his Deutsche Messe in the year 1526 – matching the purposes of liturgy to the musical styles “of the people.” We hope you can join the church and the Bluegrass Band with this wonderful and joyful worship experience!
