WORSHIP TIMES
 
  • Sundays at 9:00 am –
Sunday School at 10:20 am – 
 
RECHARGE Wednesdays 6:00 PM  
 
Gathering weekly to worship is one of the ways we both live out our faith and are strengthened in our faith.  Through worship, we come intentionally into presence of God.  We experience God when hymns or songs of praise are sung, when prayers are spoken, when the Word of God is read and proclaimed and when the sacraments are celebrated.  As Lutheran Christians, we gather weekly around both Word (read and preached) and Sacrament.  Holy Communion (the Eucharist, the Lord’s Supper) is part of every Sunday worship experience and is open to anyone who wishes to receive the true presence of their Lord Jesus in the bread and wine.  We also offer gluten free wafers and white grape juice as alternatives.
 
 
Our Worship follows the basic order of “Gather-Word-Meal-Send,” with most of the parts coming from our primary worship resource:  Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW) hymnal.  Congregational singing comes primarily from hymns and songs in the ELW, which includes a wide range, from the “golden oldies” to “global” music.
