Worship

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all you lands!

Serve the Lord with gladness;

come into God's presence with a song.

Know that the Lord is God,

our maker to whom we belong;

we are God's people and the sheep of God's pasture.

Enter the gates of the Lord with thanksgiving and the courts with praise;

give thanks and bless God's holy name.

Good indeed is the Lord,

whose steadfast love is everlasting,

whose faithfulness endures from age to age.

PSALM 100

Welcome in the name of Christ!

Children are always welcome in worship. Nursery care is available for children ages 0-4 if desired.

 Wednesday 6:30 p.m. Evening Worship

 This worship experience bears the basics of Christian worship: Song, Prayer, Word, and Meal.

 Come for a time of worship to close your mid-week day.

 

The reasons we worship are complex and rich:

We gather with fellow Christians to confess our sin and hear God's word of forgiveness.

We hear the word proclaimed - law and gospel - in scripture reading, preaching, and song.

We eat the bread and drink the wine of communion and become the very body of Christ that we receive.

We pray for the great needs of the whole creation and are empowered by the triune God to be a living presence of faith, hope, and love in the midst of the needs of the community and the world.
