Our 8:00 a.m. service uses a variety of traditional liturgies as found in The Lutheran Service Book, along with our favorite hymns from the past and present. Many love to sing these hymns to God’s glory accompanied by our rich sounding pipe organ.
Our 10:30 a.m. Family Service has all the beautiful components of our Lutheran heritage using a more blended style of music supported by an electronic piano and guitar with song leaders. Our youth tend to be more engaged and involved in this worship style.
The praise team sings and plays at the contemporary service with uplifting and contemporary music. The team consists of a piano, guitar, and several voices. Even the children know the songs and partake in singing. On youth Sunday the high schoolers sing with the praise team.
A sacrament is a holy action started by Jesus in which He brings His invisible grace into our lives through visible signs.
- In Baptism Jesus brings His gifts to us through the common element of water connected with His words and promises.
- In the Lord’s Supper He brings forgiveness, life, and salvation as He offers His body and blood through the bread and wine. We believe in the “Real Presence,” that is, He is really present with us.
The third Sunday of the month is Youth Sunday. The youth of all ages have the choice to be a greeter, usher, acolyte, or a reader. By being a part of the service they are learning more about Jesus' Love.
TO THE PARENTS OF OUR YOUNG CHILDREN, MAY WE SUGGEST:
RELAX! God put the wiggle in children; don’t feel you have to suppress it in God’s house. All are welcome.
Sit toward the front where it is easier to see and hear what is going on. Children tire of seeing the backs of others’ heads.
If they are old enough, quietly explain the parts of the service and the actions of the pastor, musicians, elders and ushers. Read the Kids in the Divine Service to them .
Sing the hymns, pray and say the responses. Children learn liturgical behavior by copying you.
If you feel you have to leave the service with your child, feel free to do so, but please come back.
Jesus said, “Let the children come to me”.
Remember, the way we welcome children in church directly affects the way they respond to church, to God and to one another. Let them know they are at home in this house of worship.
*Activity bags are located by the ushers when you walk in.
