Celebrating Black Musicians in Sunday Worship!

In honor of Black Musicians during Black History Month we will be playing  Adagio cantabile from Cinnamon Grove  composed by Robert Nathaniel Dett during worship this Sunday. Robert was a Canadian-American composer, organist, pianist, choral director, and music professor. He studied at Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio, which was one of the only non-segregated schools at the time and went on to compose music influenced by American folk music. The suite Cinnamon Grove was written in 1928, and consists of four movements, each based on one of Dett’s favorite pieces of poetry.

Welcome Pastor Margrethe Kleiber! 

Please extend a warm welcome to Pastor Margrethe Kleiber, who will be serving as the interim pastor for both St. Matthew and First Trinity starting January 1st.
