Worship at peace

Worship is our opportunity to come together as a family of faith to receive the gifts of God while being in fellowship with one another. On the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month, we have our traditional festival worship with Holy Communion, and on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, we have our contemporary celebration worship.

Baptism

In Matthew 28, Jesus gives us the command to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus himself was baptized in Matthew 3, preparing the way for all of us who were to follow after him.


One thing that can sometimes be confusing to others is why we (Christians of the ELCA) affirm and practice infant baptism. In Mark 10:13-16, Jesus instructs his followers to let the little children come to him. All who desire to be baptized or have their children baptized are invited to call the church office to set up a time for us to celebrate this sacrament together.

Communion

We welcome all those who have been baptized and instructed. For our congregation, the age of First Communion instruction is 9 years old, and is celebrated on Maundy Thursday (the Thursday of Holy Week, before Easter Sunday).


Ultimately though, eating at the Lord's table is between you and God. We can only share the means of God's grace, and let God do the rest. When we say all are welcome, this is an important part of that welcome.
