The group comprises lead vocals/rhythm guitar, keyboards, drums and bass. We are looking for a new bass guitar player.

***More About Us***

The ELCGS has provided a place for Lutheran service and worship since 1960.

We are a committed group, friendly, and supportive of each other. We offer a lovely sanctuary to rehearse and perform in. Our equipment is new and fully functional, and includes a full PA system, a multi-track mixer, full microphone setup, IEMs for all musicians in the contemporary music group, as well as a Roland RD2000 keyboard for our music director to perform on.

Our services are recorded live and uploaded to our YouTube channel. It is our intention, once we find a new music director/keyboard player and a dedicated bass player, to record more polished versions of the hymns and songs that we perform.

If your are interested in either applying for the music director/keyboard player position or in playing bass guitar for us, please reach out. We’d love to hear from you - all we ask is that you be committed, friendly, and supportive, as well.

You can view both our traditional and contemporary services on our YouTube channel: Our last contemporary service was held on January 29, 2023.

We hope to hear from you soon.

Blessings in Christ,

- The GSMG
