• What's a service like?

    • Our worship is intimate and meaningful.¬†Songs are both contemporary and updated traditional. ‚ÄúOur service springs from a confessional Lutheran liturgy. Our language is up-to-date and accessible. We begin each service with singing, invoking the presence of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, listening to the Word and a weekly Gospel message, end the service with Holy Communion and enter back into the world with praise in our hearts.‚ÄĚ
  • What's the music like?

    • Worship is a spiritual experience, drawing each individual into a deeper connection with Jesus Christ.¬† We choose songs which both support our foundational beliefs, but also elevate our souls.¬† Stylistically, we are an acoustic contemporary band, singing current songs and also modern variations of hymns in order to lead heartfelt and authentic worship.
  • How do people dress?

    • We want you to be comfortable, so come as you are.¬†Dress tends to be modest and casual. Depending on the weather, people wear jeans, shorts, sandals, etc.
  • What about my kids?

    • Your children are welcome and well-cared for.¬†Our Family Ministry¬†hour, prior to each Sunday morning service, is an intergenerational¬†classroom where the Gospel is presented in a relevant way. Alhough there is value to children‚Äôs participation in common worship, we provide a Nursery for infants and toddlers¬†and an appropriate message for elementary-aged kids during Children's Church¬†each week.
  • Can I take communion?

    • During communion, we believe that we receive,¬†in, with, and under the bread and wine, the true body and blood of Christ shed on the cross. The same¬†Jesus Christ, who is now risen and ascended to Heaven.¬†If this, too is your confession, then we welcome you gladly to participate.¬†If you‚Äôre not sure what all that means, please stop and talk with Pastor Harrison or an Elder after the church service.
  • How can I get connected?

    • There are many ways to connect with us: become a member, join a small group, or get involved in a ministry where you can serve others with your particular gifts, talents and experiences.¬†Stop¬†at the Welcome Table on Sunday morning to express your desire, and we‚Äôll put¬†you in touch with the right person.
