The congregation enjoys liturgy and has become a place where new music is composed and performed.  We appreciate traditional hymns, newer hymns, folk music, and praise songs.  There are two services on Sundays which use the same liturgy.  With a large pool of people with musical gifts, SLC is hoping to expand our number of choirs, incorporate more musicians in worship accompaniment, have frequent solos in addition to our choir offerings, and have our music ministry be an outreach to our community.
