For Lutherans, worship stands at the center of our life of faith. Through God’s word, water, bread and prayer we are nurtured in faith and sent out into the world.
There is a basic pattern for worship among Lutherans. We gather. We encounter God’s word. We share a meal at the Lord’s table. And we are sent into the world. But we do not think about worship so much in terms of what we do. Worship is fundamentally about what God is doing and our response to God’s action. Worship is an encounter with God and each other.
All are welcome to the Lord's table for Holy Communion. We believe that the invitation to receive communion is an invitation to Christ's table and this invitation is extended to ALL. We celebrate the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the bread and wine. In faith we receive the body and blood of our Lord and Savior who gave his life for us. Come forward with an open hand to receive communion. If you wish to receive a blessing, come forward with your hands folded. Children may participate in communion at the discretion of their parents. We use communion wafers, wine, and grape juice.
Gluten-free wafers are available. The wine and grape juice is served in individual disposable cups.
For those with mobility issues, communion can be brought to you, just notify an usher.
Should you wish to have further instruction regarding communion, Pastor will be happy to speak with you.
Each week we offer special music during both our worship services. Here is a few examples for the types of special music offered:
