Music plays a very important part in the life of Emanuel. Emanuel is a singing congregation that has benefited from the great musical heritage of the Lutheran church but also from the music of other traditions in Christianity. Here are links to some of the music at Emanuel including a sample of congregation singing, Vocal Choir, Organ selections and offerings from the Emanuel Handbell Choir. In addition, a link is provided to the audio version of many of Pastor Jeff's sermons.
