9:00am English Traditional Worship - 11:00am Spanish Worship. ALL are welcome!
We offer two unique and lively worship services each Sunday - all people are warmly welcomed to worship with us at any time. Personal and relevant messages, warm friendly people, excellent music, all with God at the center... this is our worship.
Our worship of God is central to our faith journey as a congregation. We believe that you will find that an authentically friendly and welcoming congregation will greet you when you choose to attend one of our worship celebrations. Our 9:00am Spirited Traditional Service features timely and relevant preaching, outstanding and exciting music, passionate congregational participation, and the celebration of Holy Communion. The music and style of this worship service is more "traditional," featuring our incredible, 57 rank pipe organ, our choirs, scripture readings, hymns of all styles and times, and the beautiful Lutheran Liturgy. While this worship service is a traditionally focused liturgy, we believe that worship must speak to those who gather. Pastor Lara's sermons are outstanding dissertations that apply scripture to real-world issues and challenges and the worship celebration is definitely "up-beat."
At 11:00am, we offer our community a full Spanish speaking liturgy, honoring those of Hispanic traditions in our celebration of God. The music is familiar to the Spanish speaking population and Pastor Lara conducts the entire liturgy in Spanish. Leading our worship music, in addition to our Director of Music, is El Coro, a dedicated group of singers who support the congregation's musical participation in worship. And just as you will find in our 9:00am worship service, the Spanish speaking people of our congregation are delighted to welcome you!
We encourage all children to choose one of the animals from Noah' Ark at the entrance of the church and take care of it during worship. Also in the Narthex are activity sheets for children, ages Pre-K through 4th grade, with stories, puzzles, and games to complete during the worship service. There is a cry room in the balcony and a sitting area in the narthext acress from Noah's Ark for parents with young children to use during the worship service. On the First Sunday of the month, children of all ages are invited to participate in collecting our Change for Change Offering
