Why We Worship

We welcome all to our community and to our worship. The Good News of God’s grace is for all, regardless of age, abilities, physical and mental health, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, education, socio-economic status or even strength of faith. There is nothing we have done or will do, that can separate us from God – no exceptions! Come join us in worship, prayer, song, and service.

Worship is at the center of our life together at Community Lutheran Church. While we are rooted in the Lutheran liturgical tradition and follow the lectionary calendar, our worship is varied and dynamic. We have been told that we take worship seriously, but that we don’t take ourselves too seriously and we’re proud of that. We believe worship is a time to bring our entire selves before God, so we laugh, cry, learn, grow, share, forgive, celebrate, and grieve together. Every Sunday we gather as a community to confess and be forgiven, hear God’s word, pray for those in need, share the Lord’s Supper, and be sent out to serve in Jesus’ name. Sermons seek to connect God’s word with our experiences and challenge listeners to explore their own understanding of faith in their lives. Since liturgy is the “work of the people,” worship leadership is shared by the pastoral staff and congregation members of all ages.
