Worship

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. Stoop Worship and Lively Worship both take place outdoors. Please check out our Facebook page for more information.

Weekly Sunday worship, with Holy Communion, takes place at 10:30am. Nuestro culto cada Domingo es en Ingles y en Español. All worship participants are required to wear masks, and seating is spread out so that households may remain distant from one another. Our Prayground area is currently not available for use--though children are very welcome in worship, always!, they will need to remain with their respective adults in the pews.

Daily morning prayer, 9am, Tuessday--Friday, on Zoom and Facebook Live.

"Lively" Worship designed for kids, birth to 11 years old, and their adults, takes place every two weeks. They take place in Patterson Park near Ellwood & Pratt. The next Lively Worship services will take place on August 15th, August 29th, and September 12th.

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.

Stoop Worship, the first Saturday of the month, 8pm, May through October, with Holy Communion, takes place on the front porch of the church. Check the calendar for the next upcoming dates.

Sermon Archive

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.
