Word and Sacrament

WORSHIP: We returned to in-person worship in June. We ask that attendees wear a mask and maintain at least 6 feet of distance between themselves and others not in their household group. For your safety, singing has been limited, and communion is offered in disposable containers to eliminate touch points. Certain pews have been roped off to help with physical distancing.

Saturday Evening Worship is a “Come As You Are” ser­vice at 5:00 p.m. that draws the Chris­ti­an com­munity to wor­ship our Lord and Sa­vior through the singing of con­tem­por­ary mu­sic and the hear­ing of God’s Word in a cas­u­al, en­er­get­ic and rev­er­ent at­mo­sphere. The Lord’s Sup­per is cel­eb­rated each week. Our mu­sic­al ac­com­pan­ist is Eth­an Mandev­ille, and Jes­sica Segaard is our song lead­er. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved this service into the Parish Hall. 

Sunday Morning Worship is held each week at 9:00 a.m.. The wor­ship is fairly tra­di­tion­al, fol­low­ing the liturgy of Evan­gel­ic­al Luther­an Wor­ship and in­cludes mu­sic by our Seni­or Choir or spe­cial mu­si­cians or vo­cal­ists. (During COVID-19, Senior Choir and Handbell Choir have been suspended.) Holy Com­mu­nion is cel­eb­rated at all ser­vices on Sunday morn­ings.  

 Please note that there are no changes for the Saturday evening worship schedule which remains at 5:00pm. So, keep this in mind as a worship “alternative” if you have plans for Sunday morning.

PRAISE WORSHIP

From time to time, we have set aside our normal Sunday liturgy, to provide an opportunity for a worship style that is a bit different. It remains Lutheran in content, following the four parts of worship, but with the music/songs lifted from an obviously different shelf of the “church music library.” This move is intended to  provide an additonal way of worship that resonates with those who are “young at heart.” And the hope is that this will meet the need of those who are not presently found in our worship life with regularity and encourage them to discover the value of being to receive the gifts that God gives in worship.

Midweek Worship is held during the Advent and Lenten seasons.  Call the Church Office for times.
