Hymn Festivals are not a new performance event for Saint Luke Church. The late Paul Manz, organist at Saint Luke Church was internationally known for performances of these types of events: a concert where an organist and the audience are the performers.
This Hymn Festival will be live-streamed and available both in-person and virtually.
All offerings will be used to help us complete our $250,000 Capital Campaign for new technology infrastructure to support our Church and Academy ministries.
Favorite hymns and other music from church history, woven together by brief meditations on the hymns by Pastor Stephen Bouman, will make up the ‘repertoire’ for this afternoon of beautiful music. Our Cantor Don Mead will take the lead in putting together the music and musicians who will lead our hymns of thanks and praise.
