Worship & Music

Summer Worship - Sundays  9:30 am begins 5/21

We offer two worship services at 8:30 am and 10:45 am from September through May, and one service at 9:30 am, Memorial Day through the Sunday after Labor Day. All services offer Holy Communion every week, with occasional exceptions.

 

Our 8:30 am service is a traditional service with liturgy from the Lutheran Book of Worship.  Our 10:45 am service is a blended service with a variety of liturgies fitting the temperament of the church season. 

 

Our musical resources for our late service draw from a variety of traditional and more contemporary styles, but we do not have a praise band.  What we do have, however, is an incredibly talented Minister of Music, that can lay down a variety of instrumental tracks and make our choir sound like many more than we are.  He is truly a gift to our music ministry. During the summer and intermittently throughout the year, we are blessed to have the acoustical guitar talents of one of our choir members to spice up our musical offerings.  Occasionally, you'll hear vocal or instrumental solos or accompaniments by several of our musically gifted members.

 

For short term sessions in the Fall and sometimes in the Spring, our bell choir practices on Thursdays at 7 pm for segmented shifts of the calendar year, and choir meets on Thursday evenings at 7:45 pm to practice for our Sunday anthems.  Otherwise the choir practices at 7:30 pm on Thursdays.  Generally, we sing at the early service on 1st and 3rd Sundays, and at the late service on 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays,.  (Except July & August)

 

 Watch/Listen to an original Christmas arrangement by our Minister of Music, Don Ehrmann: 

 

Prayer Sessions

4th Wednesdays, 8 pm 

Brief period of Taize hymns followed by 20 minutes of Silent Prayer - a period to empty your heart and mind of all thoughts and cares, becoming an empty vessel ready  to receive the Holy Spirit. 

 

 

 

Children are welcome in worship.  We understand that they fidget, but we also know that the best way for children to learn how to behave in worship is to BE in worship.  For those times when they might be too restless for everyone else's enjoyment of the service, our narthex (lobby) provides clear glass walls and doors to separate the sanctuary from the narthex so that the parent can see what is happening in worship, and a speaker system that allows the parent to hear the service.  

 

We hope that you will join us.  Please read the "When you visit..." notes on our home page.
