Worship is how we connect with God each week. In the company of brothers and sisters we sing and pray, rejoice and learn. We receive what we need for daily life and we learn what God is calling us to be and do as his followers. At Grace Lutheran Church worship takes many forms, from simple prayers to traditional rites as well as new styles of music and informal gatherings. We have two Sunday worship services:
The style of this service is informal, and the prayers are fervent. This service is led by our Spirit Cellar Band under the leadership of Amy Fleming. Don’t be reluctant to sway with or even dance to the music! The service is accompanied by a Power Point presentation so everybody can easily follow all the prayers and the songs’ lyrics. During the sermon children are welcome to stay in the sanctuary or join other young ones in a side classroom where our Sunday school teachers address the sermon topic of the day in a way children can understand and relate to. Holy Communion is offered every Sunday. On the third Sunday of every month the sermon time is specifically geared toward our younger members.
Before this service starts, we also offer a small breakfast buffet, prepared by one of our members. Depending on what each volunteer brings to church, this breakfast include cookies, cakes, sweets, and other snacks, as well as ice tea, punch and hot coffee.
Please swing by one of these Sundays and swing with us to the music!
This worship service in large part follows the Evangelical Lutheran Worship liturgies, although we do value expanding our repertoire and trying new things! We worship with the help of an organ or piano, our senior choir, a bell choir, and musical contributions from our members. We celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion every Sunday and have children’s sermons every Sunday as well.
Just prior to worship there is a time of food and fellowship. You are invited to join us in our Welcome Center (narthex; area just in front of our Traditional Sanctuary) where there are snacks and coffee.
