WHAT TO EXPECT
Our worship services offer a means to experience God’s message of grace, love, hope and forgiveness for all people through faith in Jesus Christ.
When you come into our sanctuary, you can be expected to be greeted by an usher and given a printed bulletin containing information on the worship service and church activities. Coloring pages and crayons are available for children. Casual clothing is appropriate at our worship services. The words to songs and hymns are projected on a screen to make it easier to participate. Our combination of pews and movable chairs means there is comfortable seating in our sanctuary for everyone, including people in wheelchairs.
Our 9:00 am Sunday worship service is lively and contemporary in style. The service is relaxed and casual, with an emphasis on contemporary music and worship songs. Our worship team uses guitars, keyboard and drums. Sunday School students, from preschool to high school, are invited to attend the opening part of this service, then are dismissed at 9:30 a.m. to attend their classes.
Our 10:45 am Sunday worship service is traditional in style, using the hymns and liturgical settings found in the Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal and other resources. Our pipe organ and grand piano are the primary instruments for this service.
Our 6:00 pm Saturday Night Service
If Sunday morning worship doesn’t fit your schedule, we invite you to attend our 6:00 pm Saturday worship service. It is held in our beautiful patio area, with a casual “campfire” atmosphere. The Saturday service is led by a team of lay members who take turns preaching and leading the service. Holy communion is offered on the 3rd Saturday of the month, and Pastor Kent preaches on that Saturday.
Nursery care is provided during both Sunday services for children age 4 and under. We have a coffee and refreshment time following worship in our fellowship hall. All are invited to join us for tasty snacks and conversation!
Please note: from the first Sunday of July through the second Sunday of September, our Sunday schedule changes to one combined worship service at 9:30 am. Our Saturday service continues each week at 6:00 pm.
Holy Communion is celebrated at our worship services at least once a month. All baptized Christians who believe in the real presence of Christ’s body and blood are invited to receive communion. Children who have not yet received communion instruction are invited to receive a blessing. If you would like your children to learn about communion and prepare to receive this sacrament, speak with Pastor Kent.
