One of our Core Values is “to provide worship that is liturgical, flexible, relevant, scripturally based, and seasonal, with music and leadership that is inspirational and reflects our reverence for God.”
To meet this core value, we provide 3 weekly worship services, each with its own style and personality.
8:00 AM Worship Service
This service is traditional in nature, with a small, close-knit community gathering each week. We celebrate Holy Communion each Sunday, enjoy special solos and duets, and relish in the glorious sounds of the organ prelude and postlude. We then gather for goodies in the Welcome Center to catch up on the week and reach out to one another in love and support.
9:00 AM Worship Service
This service is led by our Contemporary Band, bringing great vibrancy and energy to worship. Using many popular contemporary Christian songs, we sing our praise and thanksgiving to God and reflect on the message of God’s Holy Word through song. We celebrate Holy Communion each week, follow the observances of the church year, and enjoy the leadership of not only the pastors but of lay worship leaders as well. Followed by the Welcome Center, many folks grab a bite to eat on the way to Sunday School.
11:15 AM Worship Service
Following the 10:00 Connections Sunday School hour, we gather for a traditional worship service at 11:15. Using the ELW hymnal, we sing primarily traditional hymns and enjoy the musical leadership of our beautiful pipe organ and our adult Chancel Choir. The Handbells also play regularly at the 11:15 service. With Holy Communion each week, this worship gathering draws a wide variety of ages – from young families to singles to our seniors. It is also followed by the Welcome Center – often hosting special receptions and events.
Holy Communion, offered at all worship services, is open to all baptized Christians, regardless of your denominational background. Children and unbaptized adults who have not received instruction in Holy Communion may come forward to receive a blessing.
A free, staffed nursery is provided for children up to age 4 during worship and the Connections Sunday School Hour (8:45 am to 12:30 pm every Sunday).
