Our “Early Service” uses the rich, Scripture filled liturgies and hymns that have sustained the Church
throughout the centuries. The first two Sundays of the month we use Divine Service, Setting Three
found in Lutheran Service Book. The last two Sundays of the month we use Divine Service, Setting One
found in Lutheran Service Book. We also, on occasion, use Matins to order our service.
Our “Late Service” uses the rich, Scripture filled liturgies and hymns that have sustained the Church
throughout the centuries, as well as using services designed specifically for the Sunday. On
Communion Sundays we use the formal liturgies found in Lutheran Service Book. On non-Communion
Sundays, we use the resources from Creative Worship, a publication from our Synod.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper in the confession and glad confidence that as our Lord says, He
gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but His very body and blood to eat and to drink for the
forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with Him and with one another. The Lord’s Supper is
God’s gift for Christians who are properly instructed and are able to examine themselves. Our Lord
invites to His table those who share these beliefs, trust His words, repent of all sin, and set aside any
refusal to forgive and love as He forgives and loves us.
By communing together we also acknowledge our common commitment to all the teachings of the
Bible as they are confessed in our church. Our practice of Close Communion, the historic practice of
the Church, is prompted by love, both for God’s Word and for God’s people. This practice bows the
knee to God’s deep concern for doctrinal truth and unity.
If you are not a member of this congregation, or the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, we
respectfully request you speak with a pastor before coming to the Lord’s Supper. For further study, see:
Matthew 5:23ff, 10:32ff; 18:15-35; 26:26-29; Acts 2:42; Romans 16:17; 1 Corinthians 11:17-33.
Bible Class & Sunday School
We offer a variety of Bible Classes for the adults. We have large classes held in the Fellowship
Hall, as well as smaller group settings held in individual classrooms. Sunday School for all children is
held in various classrooms throughout the building. These classes are held each Lord’s Day at 9:15
Children are encouraged to be in worship with their parents. Children’s Messages are offered
during the Divine Services every Sunday morning. However, our Nursery is staffed for every Worship
service, as well as for all Bible Classes and Sunday School. It is open for all children under three years
old. A television monitor with sound is always on in the nursery during the services so the children (and
adult staff) may hear and see the Divine Service. There is also a television monitor with sound in the
Narthex for times when it is necessary to step out of the Sanctuary.
