Worship


The Lutheran worship service goes by many names - Holy Eucharist, Holy Communion, the Lord's Supper, or Mass. Closely patterned on the Roman Catholic Mass, Lutheran worship's basic principle a concept called the "liturgy," or "work of the people." Our style of worship derives from the Bible: every Sunday our sins are confessed, God's word is proclaimed, songs of praise are sung, and Jesus Christ makes Himself present in Holy Communion.

Lutheran worship tends to be quite formal. But if you're new to the Lutheran style of worship, don't worry! Relax and take comfort in God's presence. A member of our congregation will be happy to help guide you through our service.

Besides Sunday services, special services are held during Holy Week and Christmas Eve. Midweek services are held during Advent and Lent.

Holy Communion
All baptized Christians who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are welcome to partake of His Body and Blood for the forgiveness of sin. Holy Communion is done by intinction, the practice of dipping the wafer into the chalice of wine, or drinking from the common cup. Young children may come forward for a blessing. After receiving the elements, you are welcome to kneel in reflection and prayer at the altar rail.
