Daily Bible Reading

18 January 2019

  • Acts 8:18-24

    18Now when Simon saw that the Spirit was given through the laying on of the apostles' hands, he offered them money, 19saying, "Give me also this power so that anyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit." 20But Peter said to him, "May your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain God's gift with money! 21You have no part or share in this, for your heart is not right before God. 22Repent therefore of this wickedness of yours, and pray to the Lord that, if possible, the intent of your heart may be forgiven you. 23For I see that you are in the gall of bitterness and the chains of wickedness." 24Simon answered, "Pray for me to the Lord, that nothing of what you have said may happen to me."

Worship Opportunities

Our Sunday morning worship is at 9 a.m, unless otherwise indicated.

Throughout the the year we offer additional worship services, such as evening prayer services (aka Vespers), and Gospel Music services.  

Sunday School & Spiritual Formation

We offer children's Christian education during the months of September through June.  Children's Sunday occurs during a portion of our morning worship time.

Other spiritual formation events are scheduled throughout the year, such as our Lenten (the 40 days before Easter) dinner studies. Recent topics have included the life of Martin Luther Jr and how to better understand and support our Muslim neighbors.  Please check our calendar of events for upcoming spiritual formation events.

Fellowship

We welcome you to join us for after Sunday worship to come and hang out with us for some conversation and light refreshments. 

But don't let it stop on Sunday morning. Join us as we work alongside our community hunger relief partners at Phillies Bridge Farm and on other occasions, deepening relationships with each other as we discover how God is at work through Christ in our lives and the world.

How We Worship

Be a part of God's saving story

For Lutherans, worship matters. In fact, worship lies at the heart of how we understand ourselves together. While some of the approaches to worship may differ from one congregation to another, we hold certain things in common.

There is a basic pattern for worship among Lutherans. We gather. We encounter God’s Word. We share a meal at the Lord’s table. And we are sent into the world. But we do not think about worship so much in terms of what we do. Worship is fundamentally about what God is doing and our response to God’s action. Worship is an encounter with God, who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Think about it like this. God’s Spirit calls us together. God speaks to us through readings from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, through preaching, prayer, and song. God feeds and nourishes us in a saving way. And God blesses us and sends us in mission to the world.

Taken together, the Word proclaimed and the sacraments-- both Holy Baptism and Holy Communion -- are called the means of grace. We believe that Jesus Christ is present in these means through the power of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we describe worship as a “gathering around the means of grace.” This is a way of saying that we trust that God is genuinely present with us in baptism, in preaching, and in sharing the bread and wine of Holy Communion. In that sense, Lutherans believe that God’s presence permeates all of Christian worship.

The cross is the central symbol that marks our worship spaces and when Lutherans worship, singing fills the air. The voices of all the people joined in song and the participation of all the people in the worship is a witness to our conviction that in worship we are being drawn in to God’s own saving story.
