Grace Lutheran is a liturgical church. That means that our worship reflects the ancient tradition of worship in the Christian Church with a contemporary feal.
Dress is comfortable and casual (suits or dresses are not expected.)
There is a bulletin (program) for every service much of the service is also projected onto screens in the front of the sanctuary. Even those unfamiliar with Lutheran worship "know what's going on."
The Lutheran Church is often called "the singing church" so music is an important part of every service. Our songs and hymns are drawn from a variety of sources: from ancient chant to Christian Contemporary and everything in between. If you are not familiar with a song, don't feel obligated to join in, but please read along: Songs are chosen for the message they convey.
There is a weekly "children's lesson" by the Pastor, using his puppet friend, Hollister. After the lesson, children aged 2 to 6 are invited to attend "Children's Church" an age appropriate activity that focuses on the key point of the children's lesson. Parents can pick their children up after the service.
An offering is gathered during every service; we ask guests not to feel obligated to contribute. We view the offering as a way for those who consider themselves a part of our congregation to support our ministries.
Ushers are available to answer questions or to assist in any way possible.
Grace practices "close communion" which means that we believe that communion is an expression of unity of faith between all participants. Therefore, we ask guests to speak to the Pastor before attending the Lord's Supper for the first time.
