Music Ministry

Music is a vital part of the worship life at McFarland Lutheran Church. There are all kinds of opportunities for persons of all ages and ability to participate in giving glory to God through worship music. Music is one way to share of your talents and time. As Martin Luther said;

"Those who sing, pray twice."

If you are interested in Music please contact our church office at 608-838-3184 or complete the sharing your time and talents form.


Senior Choir

The Senior Choir meets every Monday evening from 7:45 – 8:45 p.m., September through May. They are scheduled to sing every other Sunday at either the 8:00 or 10:00 service. Anyone who loves to sing is invited to participate. Chris Malueg is the director of this choir.

Festival Choirs

Several times throughout the church year, a mass choir is formed for special worship experiences. If you are interested in a short-term singing experience this is the perfect opportunity for you. There are usually 2 –3 rehearsals before a performance. Past choirs have included a Reformation, Advent and Pentecost Choir.
