Our vision as a church is to be Christ in the community so all will see the HOPE that is available to them. We do this as we: PRAISE, Connect, and Serve. You are always invited to join us as we PRAISE our God!
WORSHIP & DISCOVER
Sunday Morning Worship. Our Sunday morning worship begins at 9:45 am each week. It is a mix of traditional and contemporary elements, blended nicely together. We follow the ELCA format of Gather, Word, Meal, and Send. You can expect a mix of traditional hymns along with upbeat and inspirational contemporary music at each service. Liturgical responses and words to the songs are on the front screen; Bibles and ELW worship books are available should that be your preference. Although we are quite informal and relaxed, there is a sense of reverance as we worship together. The sacrament of Holy Communion is offered each week during worship where everyone is welcomed to the Lord's Table. Wiggles and giggles of our younger worshippers happen from time to time, and we incorporate a children's message and "creation station," along with a staffed nursery that is available.
Midweek Advent & Lent Services. During the seasons of Advent (4 weeks before Christmas) and Lent (six weeks before Easter), we offer mid-week services on site and at Inspired Living. These 20-30 minute services are opportunities to gather around seasonal themes and strengthen our faith walk with Jesus.
Special Services & Blessings. Outside of our regular Sunday morning worship, we offer the following special worship experiences each year: Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil. We also offer additional times throughout the year for: Baptisms, Blessing of the Backpacks, Healing & Anointing with Oil, and Confirmation (all during worship) as well as Blessing of the Animals and Blue Christmas (other than on Sunday morning).
Inspired Living - Pastor Rick leads worship at Inspired Living on the first Sunday of the month @ 1:30 pm. For more information, click Inspired Lliving.
