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 have a quiet-room available in our sanctuary balcony for those who prefer to keep their children in worship with them.
Older children, up to grade five, are invited to the Children's Place following the children's sermon. Children participate in activities such as stories, crafts, music, games, and videos that reinforce the Gospel message of the day. Leaders dedicated to the ministry of our little ones escort the children to the Parish Hall and return them to their families for communion and the closing song in worship.
In addition to our regular Sunday celebrations, we offer unique and special worship services throughout the year, including:
- mid week Lenten and Advent services
- Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services
- Thanksgiving Eve
- Christmas Eve (includes a candlelight service and a family service)
- others as scheduled
