Impressive. Note Lutheran churches charge a fee for entry. Try to catch a concert here. Once the organ is completely redone, it will be among one of the very best.

Plain, but serene. Go if there is an organ concert, otherwise can be on your "if I have the time" list

No. They just appreciate your attendance. Obviously short shorts would be seen as inappropriate but other than that, no dress code
