Our Services

What are services like?
Whether you’ve never been in church before or you’re a Sunday regular, you can anticipate an encouraging & enlightening experience! Our services are contemporary and are designed to be relevant, engaging and meaningful. Centered around the Word and Sacraments, worship is shaped to make connections to our daily lives and to our community. We celebrate communion at every service. You don’t have to be Lutheran and you don’t have to be a member of Rejoice. We invite all who believe in Jesus as our Savior to participate.

What is the community like?
First and foremost, our hope is that anyone attending our Sunday services would feel warmly welcomed! We realize that coming to a new church for the first time can be a bit stressful so we do our best to create a comfortable atmosphere. Our desire is to create a space where we can connect with God and with each other in a real way.

What if I'm not a Christian?
At Rejoice, we truly mean it when we say "all are welcome." We are all on a journey of faith and understanding, and we welcome you to bring your challenges, and your questions. If you’re looking for more than a religious institution and want an authentic, life-changing, relationship with God, then come check us out.

Lou Quetel
Senior Pastor

Pastor Lou took the call to join Rejoice in Nov 2005 sensing there was a very special energy and exuberant joy amongst the congregation. He feels we are blessed with talented and optimistic servant-leaders who want to make a difference for Christ; from the love and deep spirit of welcoming to newcomers, to our service to others both close to home and abroad, to the mentoring and investment in our youth. He is inspired by the way each age group is encouraged to grow their faith, use their gifts and become servant-leaders themselves! With Pastor Lou’s leadership, the people of Rejoice aspire to be disciples of Jesus while creating and encouraging new disciples! He is known for his caring and compassionate heart, energizing and insightful sermons, and enthusiasm for guiding Rejoice to fulfill – with energy, passion and love – the mission that God has given us: to create a place where God is worshiped, community is shared, and lives are changed! Pastor Lou is a native of New York City and when he has free time, he loves to travel, read historical biographies and the classics (his favorite is Moby Dick), enjoys listening to classical music as well as classic rock and plays a mean set of drums!
