From the Sunday following Labor Day weekend through the Sunday prior to Memorial Day weekend, our worship times are at 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Between worship services, from 9:15 – 10:15 a.m., we have our education hour. We offer Sunday School classes for all ages from 3 years old through adult during this hour. Our worship services and Sunday School classes are open to everyone, whether a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church or not. We welcome you warmly.
During the summer months, from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend, we have one worship service at 9 a.m. We do not hold Sunday School classes through the summer months. We have a coffee fellowship time from 8:30 a.m. until 9 a.m. and again following the worship service each morning. You are invited to join us for worship, refreshments, conversation, and music each Sunday.
During the school year months when we have two services, our 8 a.m. worship is a liturgical / traditional worship service accompanied by Mary Dinesen on our Holtcamp Tracker organ. Our 10:30 a.m. worship is also a liturgical service but is led by piano and guitar. All Sunday worship services include both the Word (scripture and message) and Holy Communion.
We always celebrate the presence of children at our worship services and most services include a “Children’s Sermon” at which time the children are invited to the front of the sanctuary for a special message from the pastor.
Our facility is wheel-chair accessible and has an elevator. We seek to be a welcoming and inclusive community of faith.
All are welcome at the Lord’s Table, whether Lutheran or not, a member of this church or not. The Lord’s Supper is for all Christians. On the first Sunday of the month, communion is served by pouring chalice with individual cups, kneeling at the altar railing. On all other Sundays, communion is served by intinction in a continuous method. With intinction, the communion participant comes forward, receives the bread and then dips it into the chalice of either the wine or the white grape juice before eating it. We do offer gluten free wafers at all communion services.
Children not yet prepared for Holy Communion are encouraged to come forward and receive a blessing. Adults that are not able to come forward to receive communion are invited to inform one of the ushers and they will let the pastor know and communion will be brought to you in your pew. This is the table, not of the Church, but of the Lord. It is made ready for those who love him and for those who want to love him more. So, come, you who have much faith and you who have little, you who have been here often and you who have not been here long, you who have tried to follow and you who have failed. Come, because it is the Lord who invites you. It is His will that those who want him should meet him here.
