“Simple” Traditional Weekly Worship

Currently being held in-person only.   Please join us for our weekly early Sunday “Simple” service with traditional liturgy, an inspiring sermon, and holy communion. Our Sunday morning “Simple” service is spoken word only and vintage Lutheranism: liturgical but not stuffy, with a constant focus on God’s love, communicated through the Word and Sacraments.

Adult Sunday School Class: The Lord’s Prayer

Starting Sunday, June 26, 2022, and continuing for six weeks, the Adult Sunday School class will be gathering to study the Lord’s Prayer.  When the disciples asked Jesus how to pray, Jesus gave them this prayer. He likely taught it to his followers often, not just one time. He never intended the Lord’s Prayer to be a museum piece, framed and placed on a mantel or in a display case. It was Jesus teaching God’s people, through his disciples, how…

If you like classic hymns, a booming organ, the voices of a choir raised in song — and a few moments of silence for prayer and meditation — this is the…

Adult Bible Study with Pastor Michael

A Sneak Peak at the Weekly Readings! Each week, we read a series of lessons together in worship, and hear a sermon that touches on at least one of them. But wouldn’t it be great if we knew which lessons we would hear in advance, so that we could understand them more deeply? If only there were some way to get a sneak peak. Good news: there is! Each Thursday, Pastor Michael will introduce us to the lectionary for the…
