Every Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m., our community gets together for its main gathering of the week. In worship, we sing lots of songs (and you don't have to be a good singer to sing along!), read stories from scripture about God's work in our world, hear our pastor unpack these stories in a sermon, pray together for the wellbeing of our world and its people, and then share in the Lord's Supper. Lutheran Christians believe in the real presence of Jesus in, with, and under the bread and the wine (or grape juice, which is always offered for those who need it). You don't have to be Lutheran in order to share in this bread and wine, and children are welcomed at the table too, as soon as their parents feel they are ready. Although our worship style is a little bit formal (with specified times to stand, sit, speak, and listen), we're pretty laid-back about it at Christ Lutheran, and there will always be someone willing to help you along if you get lost. However you choose to participate, you are welcome here.
Sing and Play Worship
Sunday morning worship services are often too long and difficult for the very young, and offer little opportunity for children to be themselves. Sunday 4:30 p.m. Sing and Play Worship is an opportunity to gather together to worship God that is careful to include the youngest among us. We share readings from the Bible and tell Bible stories in a child-friendly manner. We sit on the floor and sing songs together. We see God's grace revealed in everyday language and symbols. And we share in Holy Communion, bread and grape juice, Christ's body and blood, around a table that is open to all God's children. If you have little ones in your family, or if you just want to come experience worship in a fun new way, make sure to stop by one Sunday evening!
Worship is the work of all God's people, and there's plenty of room for you to help lead. We are always in need of more Assisting Ministers, Acolytes, Readers, Ushers, Altar Preparers, Coffee Hour Hosts, Nursery Caregivers, Greeters, and more.
