Worship at Living Christ
Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m.
At Living Christ, we are serious about our faith but we are relaxed in worship--come as you are! Whether you like to get dressed up in your Sunday best or you are at home in jeans and a T-shirt, you are welcome here.
When you worship with us you will hear and sing a wide variety of music in worship, from contemporary praise songs to ancient hymns to music from cultures around the world. You'll be invited to try a little singing in different languages, to shake a shaker with the rhythm, and sometimes even to dance.
Every song we sing tells our faith story, so the more we sing the more fully we tell the story. And don't worry if you can't sing very well. The Bible says "make a joyful noise" not "be a perfect singer."
Make a joyful noise to the Lord,
all the earth;
break forth into joyous song
and sing praises.
When you worship with us you will experience a Lutheran liturgy. (Liturgy means "work of the people.") The form of the liturgy has been shaped over hundreds of years and by millions of Christians, and it connects us to them all as we worship. The liturgy follows these four basic elements:
coming together with song and prayer
hearing the Word of God in scripture and preaching, and responding to it in prayer
sharing the holy meal of communion
going forth to serve the Lord with a blessing and song
When you worship with us you will be invited to the communion table. Lutherans teach that anyone who is baptized may take communion, so you will see little children and even babies sharing in the communion meal. We welcome all people to Jesus' table, no matter what your faith background might be.
We also welcome those with food sensitivities to the table. In addition to traditional wine and bread we offer grape juice and gluten-free bread.
Sometimes visitors from other faith backgrounds prefer not to take communion, which we understand. If you would prefer not to commune, you are welcome to come forward for a blessing from Pastor Laura during communion time.
Do this in remembrance of me.
