Wednesday Evenings at 6:15 in the Sanctuary is a shorter mix of liturgy and high energy music led by a band of musicians. This is a key part of the Wednesday night experience of learning, sharing a meal together and hearing a relevant message midweek.  


Saturday 5:15 in the Chapel and

Sunday 8:30 in the Sanctuary feature more traditional components, including beloved parts from the Lutheran Book of Worship liturgy and classic hymns.  


Sunday 10:45 in the Sanctuary features a weaving together of newer elements and classics, accompanied by piano, organ, guitar and more. This is not a stuffy church. We hope to create an experience that speaks to everyday life grounded in Jesus’ story in the Bible. We expect God’s presence and we know we will be changed through our time together. Our Radio Broadcast can be found on KGIM 1420 AM at 10:45 a.m.
