What to Expect
Our Christian hospitality begins when you exit your vehicle.
Our accommodating Greeters are awaiting your arrival. They meet, greet and
assist you by providing any information on childcare, Sunday School classes,
and convenience rooms. They are prepared to answer any questions you may have.
You will find a diversified membership committed to reaching out to and serving all parts of the community. Our diversification provides a welcoming and relaxed environment and removes barriers making it more comfortable and palatable to more people. Come and see!
Our Divine Worship service is Christ-centered and presented in an easy-to-follow bulletin. Our worship service calls for verbal and musical responses from worshipers; and you are encouraged to fully participate in the Worship Service. We believe that participation promotes an inspirited worship experience. Our service is supported by our beautiful organ.
As we enter for worship, we encourage time for silent reflection to prepare ourselves for the presence of God. Our surroundings always suggest our behavior. Our worship environment should manifest reverence for our Risen Lord, the center of our worship. The hymnals in the pews have a bountiful resource to direct your quiet time.
We come to worship to receive God's gifts. In order to know what he's imparting to us we have to listen. Our worship time is the most unified and the only time of the week we come together to listen to God; our blessing is to listen and receive his gracious gifts. The Sacrament of the Altar (Holy Communion) is celebrated at most worship services. Our policy and practice is in accordance with the teachings of I Corinthians. The Sacrament is offered to those who have received instructions and share our beliefs about the mysteries that occur in the Sacrament. Worship time is the time to drown out all the distractions and our multi-tasking lifestyle and to focus with rapt attention on the center of our worship, our Lord. Come and see!
The Lutheran Identity
The Lutheran Church is part of a "Synod" which means walking together. The congregations of our Synod autonomously and individually agree to follow apostolic teachings. These congregations voluntarily choose to come together with other congregations who share the same apostolic beliefs and practices and walk together.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church was the first “Protestant” church. Born of the Reformation of 1517, we still follow the teachings of Martin Luther. His teachings are commonly known as: Grace Alone, Faith Alone, and Scripture Alone. We are confident we have received the true apostolic teachings of Christ through Luther’s words and we strive to live by these words and pass them on as we have received them. Come and see!
