We come from many backgrounds and experiences, but each week we come together around Word and Sacrament to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, to be fed in faith, to be strengthened by God’s holy presence, and to be sent into the world renewed in our mission.
Our worship style at Living Grace leans toward "traditional” with a reverent yet relaxed manner. Every service is slightly different, from the readings and sermons, to hymns and prayers. Yet no matter the differences from service to service, what remains the same is that we gather in Jesus’ name to offer worship and praise, to hear God’s Word and to receive our Lord’s holy presence.
We also host special services throughout the Liturgical year, including: Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter.
All are welcome to join us for worship, fellowship and discipleship!
The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday. At Living Grace we have an open table and welcome all Christian believers to the Lord's Table to receive communion. Children and those who have not communed previously may come forward for a blessing.
Let the Children Come
Living Grace believes that children belong in worship and we are thankful for their presence among us. When you worship together regularly, the presence of God is built into family life.
Tools for bringing children to worship:
- Try to come early enough to get settled and sit near the front, or where your child can see. Children who can see what is happening feel more involved and connected.
- Introduce yourself and your child to the people sitting nearby.
- Pick up a worship bulletin and some colored pencils for your child (non-reader and reader versions are available).
- Children learn all the time, whether you're intentionally teaching or not. They can learn "etiquette" by instruction. Feel free to whisper during the service to help them learn. They also learn from behavior that is modeled for them. Strive to model good worship skills.
- Always laugh with children, never at them.
- Encourage children to participate in every element of worship.
- Share the hymnal and bulletin with your child at her/his eye level. Line the words with your finger for younger readers and even non-readers who can pick out repetitive words.
- Allow your children to stand on the pew seat for hymns and other standing portions of the service. This helps them to see and puts them on everyone else's level.
- Hand your child the offering plate. Make giving a regular part of their worship experience.
- Talk about worship at home. Look for opportunities to relate the sermon or scripture lessons to something that is happening in your child's day-to-day life.
