Advent & Christmas Season

Advent Midweek Meals and Worship

As we prepare for the coming of Christ in the season of Advent we will have several opportunities to gather for meal and worship on Wednesdays during Advent.

Join us for Lunch and Prayer at 12:00 pm or Dinner and Evening Prayer at 6:30 pm.

These gatherings begin Wednesday, Nov 30th. You may bring a loaf of bread to share with others although this is not a prerequisite. Please come and share the fellowship!!

Also, During each day of Advent, beginning with "DAY 1" on November 27, you are invited to reflect on a word of the day for Advent and watch a video reflection from across the Rocky Mountain Synod. Visit the calendar each day of Advent at this easy-to-remember website link:

Rocky Mountain Synod of the ELCA is a Reconciling in Christ Synod

We welcome everyone to come explore with us what it means to be God's hands on earth.

Frequently Asked Questions?

You will find a "Click Here" button at the top of all our webpages for our Sunday Worship ZOOM link

How should I dress?

For our ZOOM calls the dress code is not different from an In-Person worship. A lot of people, women and men, will be wearing jeans. You will see people in shorts when the weather is warm. A few men wear a suit or blazer and a button-down shirt with dockers. Some women will wear skirts or capris and dresses while a couple of others will be wearing their Sunday finest sometimes topped off by an amazing hat. You are an individual your choice of church wear can be just as individually defining.

How is Communion done virtually?

Sunday Communion

Our Lutheran Communion is OPEN to ALL who are baptized whether in the Lutheran or any other denomenation.
For in-person worship we will gather at the altar rail to recieve the sacraments.
For ZOOM participants, Pastor Mandy will invite you to lift elements as she says the words of institution. If you do not desire to take communion for whatever reason, that is just fine, Pastor Mandy will offer a blessing for you as well.
Click Here for two bread recipes, both hail from two of our seven ELCA seminaries. The one from Luther Seminary is wonderful and fairly easy to make, but not recommended for those with gluten sensitivity. The one from LTSS is also quite wonderful, a bit more involved, but perfect for anyone needing a gluten free bread.

The children?

We welcome children in worship as vital members of the body of Christ. All children are invited to attend worship with their parents or guardians and sit near the front so they can see something other than the backs of adults! A cry room/nursery is located just outside the sanctuary. Parents/guardians are welcome to walk with their children or to utilize the cry room/nursery as needed. Children's activity bags are available at the entrance to the sanctuary. For safety's sake, we must insist that parents/caregivers accompany younger children if they leave the sanctuary for any reason during worship.

What happens before and after services?

Sunday morning ZOOM gatherings are a time for both community building and worship. After Sunday morning service we offer ZOOM coffee and conversation as an opportunity for members and visitors to see and talk with each other about themselves and their involvement in the community.
Sunday morning in-person fellowship is encouraged with coffee and a pastry from our kitchen nook.
Thank you for joining our community for worship and fellowship!!!
