We are a church
We are a worshiping community, and as such we meet regularly, usually on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. There are other times such as holidays and the season of Lent.
We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, which is a liturgical tradition.
That means that we follow a liturgy pattern in each of our services that has been passed down for thousands of years. We could be said to be "traditional" in the sense that we use settings written in the Evangelical Lutheran Worship (our hymnal). However, that doesn't mean that we do not deviate from these guidelines from time to time. For instance, on the Sunday after Easter we observe "Holy Humor Sunday" and celebrate the fact that God pulled one of the greatest turn-abouts on the devil when Jesus was risen from the dead instead of being defeated as the devil supposed.
We have an absolutely beautiful choir of about 20 singers, one of the last of the church choirs for a congregation of our size, and one led by our great musicians Margurite Parrell, and Ingerid Kvam. Music is an integral part of our worship, and we love to sing! Soloists and occasional instrumental treats are not uncommon and we share the joy that comes through music readily.
Our average attendance on Sunday mornings is 60 to 70 members and visitors. And all are invited to share in the celebration of Holy Communion on the First and Third Sundays of each month. No one is refused at our table.
We welcome all people, no matter what your faith background, your sexual orientation, your race, your age, your physical ability, or any other idea of "qualification". And the fellowship hour following worship is nearly as important as the service itself. We truly are a welcoming, inclusive congregation!
