Music & Arts

We honor that there are many ways to “make a joyful noise to the Lord.”

184Join the Choir!

The Community Choir is looking for musical disciples of all sorts to join in leading worship on Sunday morning. You don’t need to read music, or have formal training; just a desire to praise God with the gift of your voice. We rehearse in the Sanctuary, Sunday mornings at 9:30 am; no mid-week commitment is required to participate. If you have a demanding travel schedule, you are welcome to participate, as you are able. Please direct questions to Jeremy.

Sunday Evening Worship

Luther Place would like to invite you to a new set of services, held on Sunday evenings at 5:00 pm.

Worship is led by musicians from Howard University, and includes time for prayer/mediation, Holy Communion around the table, and music throughout! Plan on praying with us, lifting your voice in song, dancing if the Spirit moves you, and digging into the word. Get a taste of what our services are like here and here.

Please contact Music Minister Jeremy Grenhart at music@lutherplace.org for more information.

Wondering what the 5 pm service is like?

Take a listen to this arrangement of Steal Away by Creative Minister of Music Jeremy Grenhart for the Delaware-Maryland Synod Assembly.

Ambassadors of Praise

The Ambassadors of Praise is a choir of women who are currently or were formerly experiencing homelessness. We are a musical witness at Luther Place and in the broader community to the living Gospel. We rehearse Wednesdays at 3 PM in the Sanctuary at Luther Place. Contact Jeremy for more information.

Visual Art:

We honor and enhance the mystery of the liturgical year through a variety of visual art forms during services throughout the year, from grand Advent and Lent hangings in the sanctuary to live painting during worship. We seek to provide space for artists to use their talent to bless the community and invoke the vastness of God.

Sacred Commons:

We understand that the church is beyond the walls of the building and therefore we seek ways to honor the sacred through art and gardening. We have converted our unused doors into murals of saints whose narratives are important to our mission. We have transformed the 14th street side of the church into an art exhibit area where we are known for our junk art displays. We have incorporated a peace pole into our commons for prayer and meditation. We are always seeking ways to put smiles on the passerby’s face and provide place for people to meditate with the sacred.

All three murals were created by artist Amanda Weber.

As a congregation believing in vibrant community, we seek ways to engage all of the senses and invite people to commune with the sacred through the visuals arts, our sacred commons, and music.
