Nursery
Nursery is available for your use at any time.
During the 10:30 Service, it is staffed by two adult volunteers who have completed our ‘Child Protection Training’ (and background check).  We have a paging system to notify you if your child needs you. The 10:30 Service is simulcast (in High Definition) so you don’t miss anything.

WORSHIP
Our Sunday Worship Services are at 8:00 am and 10:30am.  We don’t have a pipe organ (but our keyboard players are amazing!). We have guitars, drums, electric bass, and some awesome singers. We blend the historic liturgy that the Church has used for centuries with modern elements.  Our services typically last around an hour (they may run a few minutes longer if there is something special like a baptism). We
 
DRESS CODE
There isn’t one! If you want to wear shorts and a t-shirt or a suit and tie, feel free.  Whatever you wear, there will be several people dressed like you, no matter what you wear.
Accessibility
Our entire facility is ADA compliant. If there is anything you need assistance with, don’t hesitate to ask and we will be happy to help. We have ‘Listen’ hearing assistance devices available at the sound booth (big wooden cabinet at the back of the sanctuary). Large-print bulletins are available at both entrances, just ask an usher.
 
Children Welcome!
We encourage children of all ages to participate with their families in worship.  Since every family has a different way of doing that, we have several options to help your family worship comfortably.
  • In the back of the sanctuary is a cabinet with puzzles and “Quiet Bags” that you can take to your seat and return at the end of the service.

  • Nursery is available. (see pink colored square above)
  • (During the 10:30 Service only) Around 10 minutes after the service starts (right before the Scripture readings), children who are in Pre-K and younger are invited to meet in the back of the sanctuary to head to Children’s Church. You can pick them up in Room 102 (right next to the Nursery) after service is over.
  • If you need to step outside the sanctuary with a restless child, you will find chairs to sit on and a large TV where you can follow the service without disturbing the worship service.
 
Communion
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first and third Sundays of the month. Gluten-free wafers are available, just let the communion assistant know when you come forward. (The gluten-free wafers are also soy, dairy, yeast, egg, corn, and nut free and are handled and prepared according to allergen-avoidence procedures). If you have any questions, please talk to a Pastor before the service. If you do not wish to commune but would still like to receive a blessing, please come forward when directed and the Pastor will speak God’s words of love to you.
 
Below is our statement (that you will also find in our bulletin) regarding our practice of the Lord’s Supper:
 
Because we consider communing at this altar a public subscription to what our church teaches, in Christ’s name we welcome to commune those–

–Who acknowledge Jesus Christ as their personal Savior from sin;

–Who can discern the Lord’s Body and Blood as truly present, together with the bread and wine as taught by The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod;

–Who can examine themselves and repent, as instructed in the Scriptures;

–Who have faith in the words of Jesus, “Given and shed for you for the forgiveness of sins,” as embodying the purpose of the Sacrament;

–And who look to the Lord only for His help to change their lives.   

If you are not comfortable with communing, please feel free to remain seated and talk with  the pastor following the worship service.
