What to Expect

What are services like?
We hold to the ancient pattern of Gathering - Word - Meal - Sending for most of our services. Pastors proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ through sermons. Holy Communion is offered at each service. A variety of musical styles are incorporated in worship. Special music is offered by our various choirs, handbells, brass, and praise band.

What is the community like?
We are a friendly group of people who feel called to love God by loving others. Our cross-generational community welcomes all who come to our worship and other ministries.

What if I'm not a Christian?
All are welcome at Windsor Heights Lutheran Church. We will graciously extend hospitality to all who come. Bring your questions, doubts, certainties, and joys with you!
