Worship is at the heart of all that we do and all of who we are as Christians; chiefly an opportunity to praise and give glory to God in Christ, yet also a time when we are fed and nourished by the Word and Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion, nourished by the presence of God found in Community as we pray and sing, laugh, cry and learn.

Joyously intergenerational, we worship in a format and style rooted in history and tradition, yet open to innovation and the experimentation necessary to carry the Gospel to the world. Within a continuity of worship structure we employ organ, piano, guitar, bass, and drums; a more traditional choir and the Redeemer Jam Band, time indoors and out, and an integrated Sunday Morning Youth Ministry.

"For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”

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.

  • Daniel 12:1-4

    1At that time Michael, the great prince, the protector of your people, shall arise. There shall be a time of anguish, such as has never occurred since nations first came into existence. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book. 2Many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. 3Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. 4But you, Daniel, keep the words secret and the book sealed until the time of the end. Many shall be running back and forth, and evil shall increase."

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.
