Sundays at 9:30am : Worship lasts about an hour and a half and includes Holy Communion. Holy Communion is included every week. We offer common cup, individual cups, and choice of wine or grape juice. Gluten-free wafers can be provided, please notify Pastor prior to service. Children are encouraged to come forward with their family. If they have not yet reached the age of first Communion, they may receive a blessing by Pastor. At age six they are invited to take their first communion. After the readings, children are invited to the front for Pastor’s Children’s Sermon. Afterwards, they go to the fellowship hall for Children’s Church, an activity led by adults that focuses on the word of the day. As with our Lutheran custom, they return to the sanctuary after the sermon to complete the liturgy with their families.
Jazz Vespers – Second Sunday at 5:00 pm : A Sunday evening prayer service led by Pastor Paul Waterman with members and guests of the New Arts Jazztet.
