Music Ministries

Music is such a powerful part of worship. It can inspire people and help make worship a more meaningful and moving experience. Through our Music Ministry at Hales Corners Lutheran, you can lend your vocal and instrumental talents to lifting up God's Word and inspiring those in worship. If you play an instrument or sing, we want to invite you to get involved and offer your talents to one or more of Hales Corners Lutheran’s music groups. Contact Jana Petersen for Sanctuary Worship at jpetersen@hcl.org and Austin Auberg for Chapel Worship at aauberg@hcl.org or call 414-529-6700.
