What to Expect during Worship

What to Expect at Worship

We would be glad to have you worship with us! Here are some items you might find helpful in knowing before you come and join us. We offer two services each Sunday at 8:30 am and 11:00 am. Children’s Sunday School is at 10:00 am and Adult Sunday School is at 10:00 am. However, during the summer months of June- August, we offer one worship service at 10:00 am. Also, there is NO Children’s Sunday School from June – August. Adult Sunday School DOES continue to meet over the summer at 11:00 am.

Dress

Dress for worship in what you are comfortable in. You will see that most everyone is dressed casually or in business casual. Shorts are not uncommon during the summer months, college football spirit-wear is often seen in the Fall.

Parking

Parking is available in clearly marked spaces on a paved parking lot. There are special “Visitor” parking spots available located on the left hand side as you drive into the parking lot.

Children

Children are welcome in worship. There is a special “children’s message” time where children are invited forward for a time of instruction prepared especially for them.

A nursery with an attendant is available for infants and toddlers, with closed-circuit television so that parents can continue to follow what is happening in the sanctuary.

Greeters

Greeters are stationed at the doors leading  into the sanctuary to welcome you and hand out bulletins. They can assist you, offering  directions to the nursery or the restrooms and answer any questions you might have.

Worship

Worship is formal yet relaxed. Our worship space is warm and intimate. The pastor wears traditional vestments, yet it is common for worship to include laughter and/or applause.

Variety in Worship is something we value. On some Sundays worship features a piano with guitars and bass, other Sundays worship is led by organ. On occasion we have a special “Celebration Service”, with all sorts of instruments including a banjo and djembe drums. All worship services follow the basic structure of the Lutheran liturgy. Learn about the Biblical Roots of the Liturgy.

Holy Communion is celebrated at all of our worship services.  All baptized Christians who seek Christ and his grace in this special meal are welcome to commune with us.  Bread and wine are used in the sacrament; grape juice is also available.

Powerpoint Screens at the front make worship easy to follow and participate in. Bulletins, Worship books and Bibles are available for those who prefer to use those materials.

Coffee and Refreshments are available before and after worship in our coffee nook, located in the hallway between the sanctuary and the nursery.
