Service Times

We invite to you to worship with us!

Children are always welcome in our worship services. Parents are welcome to use our staffed Nursery provided for younger children during worship on Sunday morning.

Saturdays @ 5:00 pm - JOY! Service
The JOY!song worship team of instrumentalists and vocalists leads worship at the JOY! services in an upbeat "blended worship" mix of contemporary and traditional music. No daycare provided.

  • Music is taken from With One Voice, Worship and Praise, Lutheran Book of Worship, and Lutheran Service Book hymnals.
  • Communion is celebrated on Saturdays before the second, fourth, and fifth Sundays of the month.
  • This service is great for families with children and people new to Christianity and church attendance. Dress is informal, and light refreshments are served after the service.

Sundays @ 8:00 am and 10:45 am (or combined 9:30 am service in July & August)
Our Sunday morning services engage worshipers with traditional Lutheran liturgy and hymnody.  The Adult Choir, Early Service Choir, Choristers, Bells Angels Handbell Choir, and Twelve Bells for Worship enrich our worship with music throughout the year. Daycare provided.

  • Holy Communion - Settings I and II, Service of the Word (from Lutheran Service Book), and Setting 5 (from With One Voice) are used most frequently.
  • Communion is offered every Sunday, alternating between early (second and fourth Sundays) and late (first and third Sundays) services, or at all services on the fifth Sunday of the month, and on festival weekends.
  • Our pastors wear clerical vestments, and lay assistants, acolytes, and crucifers serve in leading the service.
