You are invited to join us for our Sunday worship service at 9 am (summer schedule). After the service, head over to Luther Hall for coffee and treats.
Pastor Janna Mikkelson will be on hand to offer a warm greeting, then lead the service. Be sure to say hello and tell her your name. We look forward to meeting you!
We are located at 22601 State Highway 88, just east of Red Corral Road in Pioneer, across the highway from Amador Auto.
God's Spirit calls us together. God speaks to us through readings from the Bible, and through preaching, prayer, and song. God feeds and nourishes our souls. And God blesses us and sends us in mission to the world.
Taken together, the Word of God proclaimed and the sacraments--both Holy Baptism and Holy Communion--are called the means of grace. We believe that Jesus Christ is present in these means through the power of the Holy Spirit. We trust that God is genuinely present with us in baptism, in preaching, and in sharing the bread and wine of Holy Communion. In that sense, we believe that God's presence permeates all of Christian worship.
The cross is the central symbol marking our worship space, and during worship singing fills the air. The voices of all of the people joined in song, and the participation of everyone in worship is a witness to our conviction that in worship, we are being drawn into God's own saving story.
Worship matters, and worship lies at the heart of how we understand ourselves together as a faith community. Here is the basic pattern:
You will be greeted in the Narthex (lobby) and receive a printed handout to follow. The handout includes the Sunday theme, announcements, music, scripture, and other elements of the service. Coloring pages are provided for children. Choose a seat in the sanctuary and enter into worship with us. All are welcome!
We follow the basic pattern outlined above, but we also follow the Church Year. Here are some of the special services we offer:
