Worship is the center from which the rest of our Christian life flows. Inspiration, spiritual nourishment, participation in the sacraments, community belonging, intergenerational connections and intellectual challenge are all part of worship, but placing God first in genuine Spirit-filled worship is what we're about. If you would like to worship alongside others who are daily seeking to follow Jesus Christ, or if you just want to explore what Jesus might mean to you, please join us.

8:15am Traditional Worship - Our traditional service is liturgically based and includes music from the Lutheran liturgy as well as great hymns of the faith, led on the organ. We have adopted the new Lutheran Service Book in our worship. Each week we hear from God's Word in the message and learn how it pertains to us in our 21st century lives.

9:30am Reach Worship - Our worship gathering for those who are just discovering the Christian faith is a blend of ancient and post-modern styles.  High tech, yet grounded on the Word of God, the music is contemporary and led by Promise Praise Band.  Children are welcome to join a Sunday School class after the first 15 minutes of Praise and Worship.  Reach 

11:00am Contemporary Worship  - Our services focus on authentically worshiping God with excellence and inspiring others to do so. The Contemporary service, led by the worship band Promise, is filled with spirited, uplifting, and thought provoking songs - some you may know from contemporary Christian radio and some which are original to Promise, written by the very creative pen of Bryan VanderHill. The Biblical message is the same as that given in the Traditional Worship.

Communion - Communion is offered at both the 8:15 and 11:00 services with few exceptions and at the 9:30 service every other Sunday.  You may choose to use the common cup, an individual cup, or intinction (dipping the wafer in the common cup). Children who have received training for their First Communion are invited to participate, younger children are invited to come forward with their parents and receive a blessing from the Pastor.
