Worship

Worship Service Times: Sunday- 10:00 am

We are a vibrant community of faith and there is a place for you here!
ALL are welcome. No exceptions. 

Every worship service blends the structure of traditional Lutheran liturgy with fresh music from a variety of genres. Every worship service includes reading of scripture, a sermon, hymn singing, passing the peace, and the sacrament of Holy Communion. We are an open and inviting community of faith.  Come as you are; casual attire is fine. 

A nursery is available each week for children through age 4.

Sit wherever you are comfortable.  There are no reserved seats.  

The Order of Worship and Liturgy are printed in the bulletin each week.  You can expect to participate in the service through singing and responsive group readings.

Each Sunday we have a Children's Sermon. Children are invited to come forward to sit in front during the message. Afterward, children ages 3-grade 6 may leave the service to attend Children's Church, a time for deeper exploration into Bible stories, as well as crafts and games. The children rejoin their families towards the end of the service to participate in Holy Communion.

Each Sunday we share the peace. At a point in the service, we greet each other with hugs or handshakes and say, "Peace be with you." You are encouraged to participate as you are comfortable in doing so.

We celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion every Sunday. We welcome and invite all to our Lord's Table who believe in the real presence of Christ in the Lord's Supper to bless, forgive, and strengthen us in faith. Children may receive Holy Communion at the discretion of their parents.  Please come forward at the direction of the usher down the center aisle to kneel at the altar rail.  Those unable to kneel may stand.  You will receive the bread in your hand to place in your mouth.  You may receive the wine via common cup or you may select grape juice (white) or wine (red) from an individual cup.  After you have received the elements, return to your seat using the side aisles.  If you are unable to come forward, please notify an usher prior to the service and Holy Communion will be served to you in the pew.  

We have Food and Fellowship every Sunday following the Worship service. All are welcome to stay as we join together for a delicious meal and a time for informal conversation.
