Lutheran worship follows a pattern each week: Gathering, Word, Meal, and Sending. We gather in Christ’s name, taking time to set down the week’s burdens and rest in God’s grace. We hear the Word of God proclaimed in scripture, sermon, and song and lift our prayers to the One who promises to hear us. We share God’s holy meal, Communion, and receive strength for the journey ahead. Then we are blessed and sent back into the world, singing and praising God for all God’s gifts! Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate in worship. As Pastor Rachel says each week at the communion table, “No matter the church of your membership, the form of your baptism, or where you are on your journey with God, a place has been prepared for you at this table - at Christ’s table. So come and eat for all is ready and all are welcome!”
Your kids are welcome here! We love having all ages together for worship, so please don't worry if they wiggle or make noise. They're kids... it's ok! Need a distraction? There are baskets by the usher stands that contain clipboards with paper and crayons. Please help yourself. There are also Story Bibles in most of the pews that we invite your children to enjoy.
We know that sometimes kids just need to wiggle and play a little more so we have a Nursery and Kids' Room available for families to use. You are welcome to bring your kids there. An usher can show you where to go. The room is currently not staffed on Sunday mornings due to our COVID protocols.
Whatever you choose, we trust you know what will work best for your family and we support that.
We have plenty of parking space! If the front lot on Milham road is full, drive around behind the building. There are two more lots and a door to the Gathering Space and Sanctuary back there.
You will see a wide variety of clothing choices from jeans and t-shirts to suits and ties. The sanctuary has heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. We want you to be comfortable.
You may want to stop by our Welcome Table to learn more about specific ministries or share your contact information with us so one of our leaders can contact you later in the week. You can also fill out the guest information form below and one of our staff members will connect with you.
