Hybrid Worship Schedule

“The Holy Spirit gathers people around the means of grace – the saving word of God and the sacraments; from the table of communion where Jesus Christ comes with forgiveness, life, and salvation, God sends us to share the good news and to care for those in need.”  (Evangelical Lutheran Worship)

Hybrid Worship is an act of faith that Christ will be with us as we gather to worship as one body in multiple locations.  We believe that we can overcome the limitations imposed by the current pandemic in particular as well as other obstacles that may physically separate us from one another.  We are grateful to have technology that allows people gathered in-person and those present through virtual platforms to worship as one body in Christ.  Please continue to pray for the Holy Spirit to guide us as we embrace the challenges of worship and ministry during this deadly pandemic.
