Variety is used as a means of:

  • Enriching our lives and our faith
  • Meeting differing worship needs
  • Familiarizing people with our rich worship tradition

Hymnody and songs reflect our Lutheran emphasis on:

  • Congregational participation
  • A variety of styles and favorites among our membership
  • Our approach to the readings and the theme of the day.

Our concept of worship is:

  • A dynamic encounter between God and God's people
  • A participation in God's ongoing plan of salvation
  • A time when God brings gifts of forgiveness, faith, hope, love and community
  • A time when we offer ourselves to God in prayer, praise, discipleship and service
