What to Expect
What are services like?
We confess the real presence of Christ in the Sacrament and believe it is truly His body and blood, which comes to us, with and under the bread and wine. All baptized believers are welcome to celebrate Holy Communion at the Lord’s Table. Communion will be distributed by intinction, the Eucharistic practice of partly dipping the consecrated bread, or host, into the consecrated wine before consumption. Children are always welcome to join us for worship. They are encouraged to come forward during Children’s Messages and participate. Also, please note that there are age-appropriate materials available in the narthex (entrance hall). Handicapped accessibility is provided through an elevator at the narthex, Fellowship Hall and street (Hillside Lane) levels. If desired, Holy Communion will be gladly distributed to you where you are seated. Simply notify an usher. Restrooms are available on the lower level and can be accessed down the stairs or the elevator from the narthex. Additional restrooms are located in the educational building, through the right side door of the nave (the main church worship area). Ushers are available throughout the service to be of any assistance needed. Coffee and refreshments are generally served following worship in the Fellowship Hall, located on the lower level beneath the sanctuary. Please join us!
What if I'm not a Christian?
If you do not wish to receive Holy Communion, you are still invited to come to the Lord’s Table to receive a blessing; kindly cross your arms as a method to advise the presiding minister of your desire to be blessed.
