Our Lord Jesus promised, “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:20)
For God’s people, worship has most always meant gathering together as a group in God’s name. We celebrate God’s presence among us by reading and preaching on God’s word, the singing of Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, and praying to God. We worship using liturgies for our traditional 10:30 AM service on Sunday mornings. We do not use a liturgy for the 9;00 AM Contemporary worship service, which is led by our GLC Praise Band, and contains all the essential elements of Lutheran worship, such as Confession and Absolution, Prayers and the Lord’s Prayer, reading of the Gospel, Pastor’s message, the Apostles’ Creed, and Benediction.
In the 9:00AM worship service, Holy Communion is offered on the second and fourth Sunday each month. In the 10:30 AM service, Holy Communion is offered on the first and third Sunday each month.
All are invited to receive the Lord’s Supper. At Grace Lutheran Church, we believe that Holy Communion is food for the soul. It is Jesus’ meal and He comes to us in the bread and wine. In Baptism, we are first born anew, but we all sin and fall short of what God requires. Jesus calls forward to His table all those who confess their sins and repent of them, desire forgiveness, believe Jesus died for their sins and hunger, and thirst for a new and transformed life. Grape juice is offered as well as wine. Children are encouraged to come up to the altar rail for a blessing by the Pastor.
‘Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation!’ Psalm 95:1
We are a congregation that loves to sing to the Lord, and hear music that praises and glorifies our Savior. On the first and third Sunday of the month, special music is provided by a traditional choir during the 10:30 AM worship service. Musicians, especially children and youth, are encouraged to play an appropriate piano, violin, or other instrumental piece during offering.
Services of Healing
When: Usually scheduled for a Sunday afternoon at 3:00 PM. Call the church office for updates.
This gentle, soothing Communion service lives up to its name – the liturgy helps you to deeply reconnect with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in a personal and private way. Open to anyone who wants to come, this inspiring and uplifting liturgy is ideal for all who suffer, be it personal loss, physical illness, or simply through trying to cope with daily strife.
During our healing services, those who are experiencing physical, emotional and spiritual suffering receive prayer, comfort, consolation, an anointing with oil and laying on of hands by elders. This all occurs within the service of worship, which includes preaching and Holy Communion.
May the love of Jesus bring you peace.
