Holy Communion is offered each Sunday at both worship services. (Please see our Liturgies and Worship Schedule below.) The Sacrament of Holy Communion is open to all Baptized Christians who believe that Jesus is truly present in the bread and wine of Holy Communion. It is Jesus who serves us, bringing to us the baptismal promises of forgiveness of sins, new life, and hope for eternal life. Young children are welcome at the table and will receive a blessing. Gluten-free bread is also offered and, if for any reason you cannot receive wine, white grape juice or water is available. Wine may be received by either individual glass or chalice.

Our 2013 Lenten Worship
Our mid-week Lenten Worship sermons will be influenced by a book written by John Ortberg entitled: Who Is This Man: The UnPredictable Impact of the Ines-capable Jesus. We hope to share the tremendous influence Jesus has had in his day, within our world for millenniums, and today in our hearts and lives. John Ortberg shares these introductory thoughts:
“I am continually drawn to this person Jesus. The more I learn about him – who he was, the way he lived, what he taught – the deeper my admiration for him becomes. From complete obscurity, Jesus came to public attention for the blink of an eye – maybe three years, maybe as few as one. When he died, his tiny failed movement appeared clearly at an end. But Jesus’ impact was greater a hun-dred years after his death than during his life; it was greater still after five hundred hears; and after two thousand years he has more followers in more places than ever.
Just as amazing as his impact on the world at large is the revolutionary way he treated individual human beings. When you consider the limitations and prejudices of the ancient world, you realize how remarkable it is that Jesus transcends them all. He treasured children, honored women, and had compassion on the suffering – none of whom were esteemed in his culture. Values we admire today such as humility and forgiveness were scorned and considered weaknesses in the ancient world.
Jesus’ life and message are as relevant and challenging today as they were more than two thou-sand years ago. How is this possible? Who is this man?”
