  • Our Lutheran Church has an open table for Holy Communion. This means anyone who communes in their home congregation is welcome to commune with us.

  • Communion at our church is served by intinction-- taking the bread and dipping it into the chalice of wine or grape juice. Gluten free wafers are available upon request.

  • All children are welcome to enjoy our nursery when Sunday School is not in session. The nursery has books and coloring supplies and toys geared towards children from birth to age five. Adults will want to accompany their children because supervision is not provided.  You can hear the service while in the nursery room.

  • We have rocking chairs in the Narthex-- great for participating in the service while if children become fussy.

  • For those with hearing difficulties, assistive listening devices are available from an usher. Our assistive listening receivers operate on channel "E" and are T-coil compatible.


Lutheran Worship

A foundation of faith for everything we do

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.

Connected with and central to everything we do, worship unites us in celebration, engages us in thoughtful dialogue and helps us grow in faith. It grounds us in our Christian and Lutheran roots, while demonstrating practical relevance for today’s world.

Central to our worship life is the presence of God through word and sacrament. The word proclaimed and the sacraments both Holy Baptism and Holy Communion are called the means of grace. We believe that Jesus Christ is present in these means through the power of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we describe worship as a gathering around the means of grace.

There is also 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, who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
