Music Ministry

Martin Luther referred to music as the 5th gospel!

The goal of the Music Ministry of Gethsemane is to worship and praise God with heart, soul, mind and strength. By participating in a wide range of choral and instrumental groups, persons of all ages are enabled to offer their gifts in worship, for the benefit of the community, and as a creative response to God’s love.

Traditional Sundays (Pipe Organ)
Margaret Manz, Organist

Talented Gethsemane musicians play traditional pipe organ music two to three Sundays a month.  The heart of music is certainly the Paul Fort Gethsemane Memorial Pipe Organ.  The fifth gospel fills the worship space, inviting all to worship God.

Blended Music Sundays (Guitar and Piano)
Dar Joy Krenek, Coordinator


This blended service has a contemporary flavor featuring acoustic guitar, piano, flute, trumpet, congas and other instruments.  This service is worshipful and uses a blended sound of contemporary and traditional with a liturgical order of service. All ages are welcome to help lead these worships.

Gethsemane has a strong musical heritage with a beautifully acoustically designed sanctuary. All of the choirs are open to all in order to share the joy of singing. We also invite individuals and small groups to offer their special gifts of music to enhance our worship throughout the year. Please contact one of the directors/coordinators or one of our pastors for more information.
