Our Services

What are services like?
Our services use the modern yet traditional liturgies from Evangelical Worship. While the structure of the service is relatively formal, the overall atmosphere is casual yet reverent. Music is very important in Lutheran worship. Most of our singing is accompanied on our recently restored pipe organ, but several members of the congregation have musical gifts. You never know what sort of special music may be offered in any given week.

What is the community like?
The overall feel is like an extended family.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Then by all means you should come and check us out. You might find that we have something to offer you that you didn't expect. As far as we're concerned you are a child of God and our job is to welcome you and respect you.
