We are a church that is determined to worship Jesus together no matter what our age or musical tastes. Our worship could be described as “blended,” meaning that we incorporate both the rich theology of traditional hymns as well as more modern “praise songs.” As Lutherans, we also incorporate historic elements of the Christian faith, such as the confession of sins, reciting the creeds and the Lord’s Prayer, as well as using a liturgy when we celebrate communion.
With families pulled in so many directions we place a high value on families worshiping together. We want children to catch the passion for worshiping God by watching others enjoy God week after week. To see a child as he watches his father and raises his hands in praise, or put his hand over his heart like his mom—there’s nothing more beautiful than to take part in services of worship with children present.
Children are able to experience the Holy Spirit, listen to what’s going on (more than we sometimes realize), and ask surprising or honest questions. Having children in worship even motivates and inspires the adults!
Kids are not a “nuisance,” but rather people who can praise God alongside mom, dad, friends, neighbors, young and old. Having the church be a family of families--That's worship!
To help children in worship we do offer children's bulletins, children's offering, "word of the day" to listen for, songs, and children’s sermons. There is also a nursery during the worship services, for those parents who wish to use it.
