Worship

Gracious Beginnings – Saturday 5:30 p.m.

From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised (Psalm 113:3). As evening commences, our weekend worship schedule is inaugurated with gracious beginnings.

As we casually gather together in this place, we encounter, experience, and express our joy in response to what God has done for us. We worship by hearing God’s Word, remembering baptism, and sharing bread and wine in Jesus’ name while lifting our voices high in prayer and song. The melodic tones of the piano with its dynamic range direct our voices in worship. Holy Communion is celebrated on the Saturdays corresponding to the first and third and fifth Sundays of each month.

God is Our Foundation – Sunday 8:00 a.m.

We hear that “no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ,” the chief cornerstone (1 Corinthians 3:11; Ephesians 2:20), and our worship of God is built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets as components of the Divine Service liturgy connects us with angels and archangels and all the company of heaven. Word and Sacrament is our foundation!

In this Divine Service, in which the worshiper comes face to face with God and talks to him as a child to a father, we respond with prayer, praise, and thanksgiving from our mind, heart, and voice. Our Casavant tracker organ is ideally suited to accompany our voices during this service. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first and third and fifth Sundays of each month.

God is Our Hope – Sunday 10:30 a.m.

Psalm 150 encourages us to “Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with tambourine and dancing, Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.”

In this Divine Service, a variety of music swells to fill the liturgy. We sing and make melody in our hearts to the Lord through Christian music, hymns and spiritual songs, (Eph. 5: 19). Receiving the key note from God, we sing in unison with one voice through Jesus Christ to the Father. As varied as our voices, a myriad of instruments , organ, bass, guitar, synthesizer, and drums, come together in this Divine Service to harmoniously sing praises to the Lord. All praise, glory, and honor to God because He is our hope! Holy Communion is celebrated on the first and third and fifth Sundays of each month.

Advent and Lenten Worship – Wednesdays 1:00 and 6:10 p.m.

Prior to the birth of the Bethlehem babe on Christmas Day and before the death and resurrection of Our Redeemer on Good Friday and Easter, we gather together to meditate upon the importance of the Advent and Lenten Seasons.
