Where do I park?

The entrance to our parking lot is located on Rollandet Avenue. There are parking spaces reserved especially for visitors. These are located along the tall green shrubs to your left as you enter the parking lot.

When do I need to arrive?

Our worship service starts at 10:15am. Prelude music generally starts about 5 minutes before the service starts. This is a good time for preparation and reflection before the service starts.

We welcome all visitors and members for a time of fellowship. Drinks and food are provided. Sunday School and Bible study begins at 9:00am.

Summer Worship schedule begins Memorial Day weekend and continues through Labor Day weekend. Our service begins at 9:30am with fellowship time following the service. There is no Bible Study or Sunday School during the summer.

What can I expect at worship?

There are four main parts to our worship service: gathering, word, meal and sending.

  • Gathering: Prelude music, confession and forgiveness, a gathering hymn and the prayer of the day gather us together in worship.
  • Word: We hear a reading out of the Old Testament, the New Testament and a reading from one of the Gospels. The sermon helps us think about how the readings apply to our life today. In thankfulness for the good news of Jesus Christ, we respond by singing a sermon hymn, professing our faith using the Apostles' or Nicene Creed, and gathering an offering.
  • Meal: All baptized believers are welcome to receive the Lord's Supper. Every week, we come to our Lord's Table to receive the gifts He has to give us in the bread and the wine. You do not need to be a member of our church to take the meal.
  • Sending: Having been nourished by God's Word and the Lord's Supper, we are sent out into the world to be disciples of Jesus Christ. We receive a post-communion blessing, benediction and sing together a sending hymn.

What can my children expect at worship?

Children are welcome to worship, we remain a congregation that worships together as a church family of all ages. However, we like to give the parents the option of allowing the children to partake in their own service designed for the children (preschool - 6th grade) during this time to allow parents the reverence of their worship.

We look forward to your call or your email if you need additional information. You can reach our office at 522-9301 or by email.

Thank you again for visiting our website. We hope you will visit one of our worship services. We look forward to welcoming you here at First Evangelical Lutheran Church.
