ABOUT OUR SERVICES
First Lutheran's regular worship services:
Living Water Communion - 5:30pmThis intimate service of Water, Word and Table combines contemporary music and proclamation in a smaller group setting. We gather in a circle around the Bread of Life in Holy Communion, receiving and sharing the bread and cup as saints and servants. Baptisms are frequent at these services, and it’s not uncommon to find special parish events and musical offerings at these services as well.
Classic Communion - 8:30amThe Lord’s Day begins with this traditional service of repentance, word, table and discipleship. Musical accompaniment is provided by the church’s magnificent pipe organ, and supported by an adult choir. Often times there are special offerings by our bell choirs, children’s ensembles or school classes. Communion is always celebrated, and people of all ages and backgrounds are welcomed to the Table of Christ’s presence and grace. A festive coffee hour follows the service, offering hospitality, food and friendship.
Praise Communion - 10:30amWorship and praise is pretty diverse at First, and our late morning service is a good example of this diversity. A praise band leads this service, with voices, piano, synthesizer, guitars and percussion. Proclamation and teaching are presented with sensitivity to the ages and backgrounds of the community, and a spirit of joy and thanksgiving pervades these services year round. Our high quality Sunday School program is held during the service, and children of all ages rejoin us for Communion and final blessing. Caring child care is provided at both Sunday services.
SPARK Sunday School - 10:30 am (September - June)
Japanese Language Devotions & Prayers - 10:30am
Morning Prayer (September - June) - 9:00am“Oh come let us sing to the Lord! (Psalm 95:1)” This word of scripture frames this weekly 20 minute service of word, song and prayer. What a great way to start the day, and to open ourselves to the strength and comfort of God at the beginning of our daily walk.
School Chapel services (September - June) - 8:30amThe 400+ members of our day school community gather each week for two energetic services of praise and teaching, at 8:30 and 9:05am. Our pastoral staff leads these times of prayer and praise, and a student praise band adds contemporary voice and song.
Early Education Center/Preschool Chapel Service (year round) - 11:30 am
Evening Prayer - 6:30pmClose of day provides a wonderful opportunity to welcome the Light of Christ into our lives, gather our prayers and praises, and offer each other the Lord’s Peace in the midst of a variety of Learning groups for youth and adults.
Come early and join us in Faith Hall for a light, mid-week meal at 6pm.
