Gloria Dei, Rockford

Deacon Carol Ostrom

As organist of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Rockford, I am involved each week rehearsing a prelude, interlude, and postlude to enhance our worship theme of the day. Bob Black meets me weekly to record my music on either our Steinway piano or 3-manual Allen organ. I choose organ classics based on our Lutheran hymns and try to include familiar tunes. My mother always said, “Carol your church music must have a melody.” Pastor Jill Flynn is recorded at her home and worship leaders at church. Bob videos and edits and is doing a marvelous job for our Live Stream worshipers.
