The Center of Our Life Together
It is the time we gather in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit to be in community together. We pray for one another, for the world around us and in praise and thanksgiving to God. It is a time for families to gather together hearing the living word of God. Together we are united in worship to grow in our faith, be grounded in our beliefs and share our gifts and blessings for the sake of the gospel in the world.
As Lutheran’s we believe in the presence of God through word and sacrament. We practice those each week in listening to faithful preaching and sharing bread and wine in the sacrament of Holy Communion where we receive the promise of forgiveness and eternal life. In Holy Baptism we are called to live a life of growth in the faith practices of discipleship.
Worship is central to our life together as we recognize where God is moving in our lives and our response to God’s action. It is an encounter with God who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Through God’s word, water, bread and prayer we are nurtured in faith and sent out into the world.
