Lutheran Christians believe that worship is the place where God most directly serves us … meeting us in Confession, Baptism, Holy Communion, and the proclaimed Word.
So, worship at Faith is as diverse as the community that gathers each week. Though we do worship in a liturgical (ordered) format, we use different musical settings and different spoken liturgies. We sing hymns and songs from many different sources … our Lutheran heritage, other denominations, and newer songs of worship and praise.
9:30 am Sundays This is an organ-and-piano-led service of Holy Communion, using the historic Lutheran order for worship; most usually, from the Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal. We sing a combination of treasured and newer hymns and songs. The Faith Chancel Choir sings regularly September - May; hand bells, brass and a variety of instrumentalists and soloists enhance worship seasonally.
Midweek worship is scheduled seasonally (Advent, Lent) and is generally offered at 12 noon and 7 pm. Please check the church calendar under the "Resources" tab for exact times and dates.
Hearing assistance devices are available for those who request them.
Sermons are Scriptural and also meant to connect with everyday life. Worshipers should be able to come away from worship with a one sentence, practical summary of the worship service, which they can take into their work, school or home activities.
Holy Communion is offered at every Sunday worship service, as well as on all major church festivals (holidays). In the words of Martin Luther, all who are present at this meal of God’s people, who believe the words “given for you” and “shed for you, for the forgiveness of sins” are welcome to Christ’s table. Faith sets no age or denominational / doctrinal restrictions on who may receive Holy Communion.
After worship, please stay and join us for food, coffee / tea and fellowship!
