Welcome to Our Worship"God is Spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth"
We would love your FEEDBACK...
Regular Weekly Worship Service Times:
We celebrate the Lord's Supper in all services on the first, third and fifth weekends of the month. We serve both red wine and white grape juice. Gluten-free wafers are available and may be received at the station where the pastor is serving.
When we receive this meal, we have faith in Jesus words, given and shed for you for the forgiveness of all your sins. Jesus Himself says the Bread is His Body and the Wine is His Blood. We believe this divine, mysterious union and, therefore, trust that all four elements Body, Blood, Bread and Wine are truly present. We also believe the words spoken by Paul in 1 Corinthians 11:27: anyone who takes the Supper in an unworthy manner is guilty of sin.
Our Lord invites to His table and declares worthy those who trust Jesus' words and sincerely seek God's power to repent of all sin, to set aside any refusal to forgive, and to love others as He forgives and loves us. Anyone who is unsure of, disagrees with, or has not been instructed in this teaching is invited to approach the altar to receive a spoken blessing. Please signal your desire for a blessing by crossing your hands upon your chest.
