Our  services include the essentials of Lutheran worship:

  • Gathering
  • Confession
  • Hearing of the Word,
  • Sharing of the Meal, and
  • Sending of the Disciples

We are created to praise God – and so worship is our central and fundamental practice as a congregation.

When we worship, the Spirit is gathering us together as church.  We enter into God’s time. Through the Word and Sacrament of worship, God gives us nourishment to actively engage in ministries as followers of Jesus in our day-to-day lives.

What to Expect on a Sunday Morning

At Advent, we worship in the rich tradition of the Lutheran liturgy,  because the liturgy (the work of the people) invites us into the depth of God’s presence as we actively participate in responsive prayer, liturgical song, and hymns.

The music and hymns come primarily from Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW), the hymnal that was published by the ELCA in 2006 as part of the “Renewing Worship” process.

We celebrate Holy Communion at each Sunday morning worship service. Pastor Mark’s preaching is based on one of the morning’s Bible readings, bringing to life God’s Word for us here and now.
