At Emmanuel, we believe that Worship is an integral part of our lives as Christians. God is with us when we gather for worship and works through the Bible, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper so that we believe the Gospel of forgiveness of sins through Jesus.
We offer two expressions of worship on Sunday mornings — Our Classic Grace Service (8:00 a.m.) and our Living Praise Service (11:00 a.m.). (Family Style Children's Sunday School and Adult Bible classes are offered in-between services from 9:30-10:30 a.m. A Cry Room and Nursing Room are available at the rear of our Sanctuary.)
Our Ash Wednesday service, Feb 17 at 6:30pm, will include Holy Communion and the distribution of ashes. Those wishing to participate in the Lord's Supper, and to receive ashes, but not comfortable worshiping in person may join us for our pre-service "drive through communion" from 5:45-6:15pm. During Lent, we will be offering our Wednesday evening "BEING Challenge" Lenten Services at 6:30pm.
The Classic Grace Service is a traditional organ led liturgical service that utilizes Divine Services from the Lutheran Service Book. The worship experience is often enhanced by our Church Choir, our Emmanuel Brass, or our Handbell Choir.
The Living Praise Service is a contemporary expression of worship led by our Worship Team with vocalists and instrumentalists, playing keyboard, electric guitar, acoustical guitar, bass guitar, and percussion.
Both services include the elements of Lutheran Worship: Holy Baptism (offered on the Fifth Sundays and when scheduled); Holy Communion (First, Third and Fifth Sundays), Invocation, Confession and Absolution, Confession of Faith, Lessons of Holy Scripture, Sermon, and the Benediction.
Seasonal Midweek Services are offered as additional times of worship for Advent leading to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, Lent leading to Holy Week, New Year’s Eve, and Thanksgiving Eve.
