This service provides an opportunity to worship in a traditional, liturgical format featuring many of the great hymns of our faith accompanied by the piano, keyboard or organ. Depending on the accompanist, contemporary music is also blended into the service. The Lord’s Supper is offered weekly.
The Lord’s Supper is celebrated at this congregation in the confession and glad confidence that, as he says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but his very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with him and with one another. Our Lord invites to his table those who trust his words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as he forgives and loves us, that they may show forth his death until he comes. Because those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of this congregation and The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, and yet desire to receive the sacrament, are asked to first speak with the pastor or an usher. For further study, see Matthew 5:23f.; 10:32f; 18:15-35; 26:26-29; 1 Cor. 11:17:34.
