Resurrection Lutheran Church’s Music Ministry includes people of all ages, and all levels of musical ability and background. Together we give glory to God and serve as a blessing and inspiration to others through the use of our God-given talents in musical offerings. This year is full of exciting, inspirational festivals and musical events. If you wish to participate in the Music Ministry at Resurrection, or have any questions regarding the following Music Ministry opportunities, please contact Bob Unger, Director of Worship and Music Ministry, at the church office ( , 919-851-7248 ext. 25).

Participants will follow protocols set by RLC, these may include wearing a face covering when in the building; physically distanced; fully vaccinated; handwashing and hand sanitizers/wipes; we will verify that ventilation systems are working properly and efficiently; water bottles instead of drinking directly from the fountain, etc.

In the midst of these uncertain times, we are looking forward to the 2021-22 season, especially the upcoming Fall semester starting Wednesday, September 8, unless noted.
