“Next to the Word of God, the noble art of Music is the greatest treasure in the world.” –Martin Luther

Augustana Worship
The Lutheran Church is a singing church! Augustana has long enjoyed a strong musical tradition.

Dr. J. Thomas Mitts serves as organist and choir director. Since 1994, Dr. Mitts has nurtured and sustained both an excellent choir and a vibrant spirit of congregational singing, intoning of Psalms and responsiveness to the liturgy. At Augustana, many of the portions of the liturgy sung by the choir or the congregation as a whole are settings composed by Dr. Mitts. Teaching at the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music or accompanying choral ensembles throughout the region, Dr. Mitts is a highly respected member of the D.C. music community.

Elizabeth Fulford serves as the Assistant Choir Director at Augustana.

We welcome the participation of people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, gender identities, educational backgrounds, and economic conditions––all who want to join in community to honor God and be of service to people.
