Sunday worship services

World Music Worship Service: Sunday, 8:30 a.m.

This worship service draws on a wide variety of musical traditions for both hymns and special music – from Scandinavian folk tunes to Asian or Latin American songs of praise; from medieval chants to African American spirituals – celebrating the rich variety of music that God has given to the Church.

Contemporary Worship Service: Sunday, 9:45 a.m.

The singing at this service is led by a band which includes piano, drums, bass guitar, and often another lead guitar or acoustic guitar, blending contemporary music with historic elements of worship that are in all of our services.

Traditional Worship Service: Sunday, 11:00 a.m.

The 11:00 service offers a continuation of the rich traditions of the Lutheran church which have been preserved over the decades. Traditional hymns, liturgy, organ playing, and worship style represent a celebration of the ways in which many Lutherans have come to worship God for centuries.

Other worship services

Wednesday Service: Wednesdays 7:30 p.m.

Most Wednesdays Mid-September through May, check the Weekly Bridge for the most current information.
We gather by candlelight around a large cross to sing and pray and to hear words of scripture that nourish our lives. During the service, participants are always welcome to come and kneel beside the cross and to light a candle as they pray. They can also receive prayer with laying on of hands for healing. The music is quiet and meditative. Throughout the year, we draw upon music from the Taize and Iona communities, as well as an Evening Prayer setting from Holden Village in Washington. The service lasts for 25 minutes, and worshipers are invited to stay and pray for as long as they like.
