What does it mean to be Lutheran?
Through worship, prayer, meditations, Lenten/Advent Quiet days, labyrinth walks and more, together we accompany one another to deeper levels of faith, connection to God and following Jesus.
Music: We are a congregation that sings. Various instruments accompany our singing including organ, piano, guitar, flute and keyboard. We use traditional and new hymns. A vocal choir provides music from spirituals to classical and contemporary. Special bell and men's choirs also rehearse and lead our offerings to God.
Liturgy: Striving for variety of musical styles, tones, and instrumentation, we learn new liturgies from time to time and rotate seasonally between liturgical settings, which include Marty Haugen's "Now the Feast and Celebration" and settings one and ten out of the new ELCA hymnal, Evangelical Lutheran Worship.
Baptism is one of two sacraments in the Lutheran church. We believe faith is a gift of God and by the work of the Holy Spirit. We baptize because Jesus told his disciples to: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:19).
Each Sunday, we offer Communion (also known as The Lord's Supper or the Eucharist - from the Greek for thanksgiving). Here we celebrate in a way that Jesus taught us, understanding that God is present in the bread and wine. These are tangible ways we can experience God's love and grace. If you are a baptized Christian and have had communion elsewhere, you are welcome to come forward. Children are always welcome to come with their family for a blessing. If you are not sure you would like to have communion, please feel no pressure to come up. Instead just sit back, listen to the music and relax.
Immediately following the worship service we invite you to stay for coffee and refreshments in the parlor adjacent the sanctuary. Our goal is to create a worship experience so that one may feel a sense of awe and wonder at God's marvelous work in our lives. We pray that all leave feeling refreshed and nourished for the coming week. In worship we come together as the Body of Christ, in all our diversity, to proclaim the Gospel, share the sacraments, and celebrate our life together, to the praise and glory of God.
