The worship services are central to everything. We gather to praise God. We share the peace and each other's company as we "fill our tanks". We offer different services but celebrate as one community. To encourage children to attend the worship service, Sunday school is held in-between services. Between services is a gathering time when there is always a crowd relaxing in our welcome area for coffee and donuts. That time is also often a time for a quick Bible study or orientation of new members.
All of our services follow a Lutheran service order, which always includes a Gathering Time (with Confession & Forgiveness), Word (with readings from the Lectionary Calendar and the Pastor's sermon), Meal (with an offering and Communion served each week), and a Sending (with a blessing and dismissal).
"For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them."
Join our more intimate service at 5:30 PM on Saturday nights. This service is more casual and held in our chapel.
During the summer ( Memorial weekend through Labor Day weekend) we combine our Sunday services to a single 9:30 service. Watch for special music events on the calendar
During the school year, we invite you to join one of our 2 Sunday morning services: 8:30 and 10:30. The earlier service is accompanied by our organ. The later service is accompanied by our praise choir.
Wear a tie or a t-shirt. Come and be comfortable. Be ready to stand-up and get into the aisle as we share the peace.
Children are welcome in the service. Nursery is provided if you prefer. Be sure to grab a child activity bag in the welcome area. A children's sermon is included in the service.
