Worship Services

Jesus and the cross are central in our worship and faith. We talk openly of holy mysteries each Sunday when we say that Jesus gave his life for us, and now it is not we who live but Christ who lives in us. (Galatians 2:20)

God's word of life comes to us through scripture, preaching, music, and prayer, and through Jesus' true presence in Holy Communion. We don't shy away from God's word of judgement or his word of grace, but we hold that he speaks to us both law and gospel.

Here God holds our attention and he comes to give us his gifts: forgiveness of sins, faith in Jesus Christ, and the comfort of the Holy Spirit.

Come and worship with us and see how God is at work in your life.

While some of the approaches to worship may differ from one ELCA congregation to another, we hold certain things in common. Central to our worship life is the presence of God through word and sacrament. The word proclaimed and the sacraments —both Holy Baptism and Holy Communion — are called the means of grace. We believe that Jesus Christ is present in these means through the power of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we describe worship as a “gathering around the means of grace.”
