What to Expect
We value all who seek God’s grace. Come in whatever you wish to wear. Most worshipers Sunday wear business casual clothing. A few still prefer coats and ties. On Saturday many members wear shorts.
Types of Services
Both of our services are in the liturgical Lutheran tradition, centered on the Word of God read from the Bible and interpreted for today by the sermon of the pastor and the music of the choir and bands. Both services offer weekly optional communion according to Jesus’s teachings. Sunday’s service largely follows the standard Lutheran service book and hymnal. On Saturday afternoon, however, everything is less formal and more contemporary while keeping the same quality content. Music is much livelier.
We are happy to see you on our website and in church! Please introduce yourself to other members and our visitors, many of them seasonal. Sign the attendance pad at the end of the pew. If you are a visitor or guest, tell us how we may serve you.
We have two offerings. One is for “Change for Change,” with every penny given away to support outside community agencies helping poor and burdened neighbors. The other is for our normal operating expenses (salaries, utilities, building maintenance, programs, etc.), but about a tenth of this is further given away to support God’s larger national and global charitable and missionary work.
If you are a visitor, please do not feel obligated to give unless you wish to do so (we are delighted to have you here); members are encouraged to be generous in supporting the church each week or month.
