What is This Congregation About?
What can I expect when I come for worship?
When you walk into our worship space you will be greeted by one of our ushers and given a bulletin that contains everything you will need to follow and participate in the service. Caution! Lutherans love to sing so be prepared to lift your voice in praise of our Lord!
Come on in and sit wherever you want, there are no reserved seats here (oops- except front right 3 rows for choir at late service).
Our sanctuary is handicapped accessible, please use entrance by the office for chair lift.
What should I wear?
Our congregation is on the casual side. While you might see some folks in dresses and jackets w/ties, the majority of folks wear everyday causal attire. You’ll see jeans and sweaters in the winter and plenty of shorts and golf/tee shirts in the warmer months!
Are children welcome?
Children are always welcome here! Most of our families attend the 9 am service which is more relaxed and usually contains more upbeat musical selections. There is a sermon for the children, after which most children go to their Sunday School classes. Children age 3 yrs and up are welcome to join our Sunday School lessons.
For our younger worshipers we have a PrayGround, which is a dedicated space in our chapel with a children’s table with puzzles, and coloring books. Families with young children can sit together in this area and know that their children are occupied while they worship.
Am I welcome to receive communion?
ALL baptized Christians are welcome here. We believe that our communion table is the Lord’s Table.
We believe that Christ is present in, with and under the elements of bread and wine. Come, receive Christ’s body and blood to remember that he died for our sins so that we may be forgiven and saved.
Are your social events open to the public?
All of our events are open to our community. Friends, family and neighbors are always welcome.
We have a wonderful relationship with the community at St. Gregory’s R.C. Church and we co-promote most of our events. The Senior Group, which meets on Tuesdays at St Greg’s, is attended by many of our members and we enjoy spending time with each other.
