I was glad when they said unto me “Let us go into the house of the Lord.” (Psalm 122:1)
At the center of Christian life is worship, the gathering of God’s people to pray and sing together, hear God’s Word, be washed in the water of baptism, and be fed at God’s table. Worship ought to be rooted in the patterns and practices Christians have shared for 2,000 years, while drawing on music and on style from the diverse cultures of our neighborhood. All are invited and welcome to worship and to receive Holy Communion.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, our regular 10:30am Sunday community worship opportunity takes place simultaneously in the sanctuary and via our Zoom channel and YouTube. In warmer weather (starting again in April), Stoop Worship and Lively Worship both take place outdoors.
Weekly Sunday worship, with Holy Communion, takes place at 10:30am. Nuestro culto cada Domingo es en Ingles y en Español. Worship participants are invited to wear masks, and seating is spread out so that households may remain distant from one another. Our Prayground area is now open and ready to be a resource to families with young children.
"Lively" Worship designed for kids, birth to 11 years old, and their adults, takes place normally every two weeks. The next Lively Worship services will take place on April 10th and April 17th, in the park and via Zoom.
Mid-week prayer services take place on Wednesdays at 7pm in December while we prepare for Christmas. Please double check the church calendar for specifics.

Along with other Lutheran Christians in the ELCA, we believe in a three-fold engagement with the Word of God. That is to say, the Word of God is, first and foremost, alive in Jesus Christ. Secondarily, the Word of God is proclaimed in preaching, study, song, and prayer, inasmuch as it points toward God's love for us in Jesus Christ. Thirdly, the Word of God is written in Holy Scripture inasmuch as it helps us to understand God's love for us in Jesus Christ, which informs our proclamation of the Word. You can listen to a selection of our Sunday sermons here.
