What are services like?
One hour traditional liturgy: Sung liturgy, mostly traditional hymns, scripture readings, prayers, sermon, creeds. Holy Communion is celebrated on 1st and 3rd Sundays and on Festivals.
What is the community like?
Multi-generational. Many of the congregation are senior citizens, but we also have many younger families with children ranging from birth through all school ages. The community is very family oriented and the congregation seeks to function in such a way as well. We are very interested in mutual support of one another and those in our surrounding community.
What if I'm not a Christian?
You are welcome to be among us. We have Sunday School opportunities for all ages (children and adults) as well as an occasional pastor's class for adults that would teach the basics of Christianity and Lutheranism. Holy Baptism is celebrated as the sacrament through which one is welcomed as a Christian into the Lord's family.
I grew up in a Lutheran Church singing in choirs and intoning the liturgy each Sunday. I'm passionate about worship and music. I plan worship services that seek to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Sacred Music at Lenoir-Rhyne University and my Master of Divinity at Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary. I was ordained in March of 2006 and have served this congregation ever since. My wife and I have been married since 2003 and have one son.
