Polka Worship

Last fall I noticed signs for "Polka Worship" on the big Lutheran Church, downtown Temple. I was so intrigued! Then, this September, the banners reappeared on the sides of the church building; apparently it's an annual event. Have any of you ever heard of polka worship? Is it a Lutheran thing, because of the Lutheran Church's German roots? Or is it a local custom because of the large Czech population in this region? I've never heard of it anywhere else where we've lived. I'm struggling with how these two words, polka and worship, are conjoined. 

Leave a message if you know about this tradition and can share some insight.
