Worship

Worship is central to our life together.  God’s Word addresses us today through the words of scripture, sermon and songs.  “In, through, with and under” a bit of bread and sip of wine God feeds us and brings us into a life together in Christ.  Our worship is lively, with well done music and a widening repertoire.  We provide a prayer station during Holy Communion for you to bring your joys and sorrows and other petitions to someone who will pray with you.  We use Evangelical Lutheran Worship as a core resource.

What to Expect

People who ‘dress up’ and those who come in casual clothing.  People who come from a variety of denominations and religious backgrounds.  Some people come without any church affiliation but are searching for meaning in their lives.  You can expect to be welcomed.

Children are expected at worship.  They are welcome at the communion table.  Children and youth assist by helping with communion distribution, serving as acolytes, and as readers and greeters from time to time.  Worship boxes with crayons, stickers and other “kid stuff” are available.  Just ask an usher.

Want to Become a Member?

Consider participating in the upcoming Amazing Grace class.

We become members at St. Paul’s by affirming our baptism in the presence of the assembly at Sunday worship.  Persons who have not been baptized, after a time of preparation, are received through the sacrament of baptism.

All are invited to attend a three-session Sunday morning class called, “St. Paul’s Welcoming for New Members.” With Pastor Gunderson leading the classes, we’ll look at Lutheran worship and spiritual practices.  We’ll talk about the life and mission of St Paul’s Lutheran Church and ways you might want to participate.  We will meet from 9:30 – 10:30 AM in the Blue Room on March 26, April 2, and April 9.  Here is a brief outline:
March 26: The Lutherans
April 2: The Lutherans at St. Paul’s
April 9: Ministry Tour of the church
People from across the congregation are invited to join in this learning opportunity.  Those who are interested in taking on membership at St Paul’s use the classes as an introduction to membership, but any are invited who are curious or want to know more.  (No obligation expressed by your coming to learn or to meet others!)  For those who desire it, new members will be received on April 15, at our Easter Vigil service.

All are welcome to attend, especially our visitors who are interested in joining our fellowship.
