Worship services are generally offered both in-person and online.

SUNDAY WORSHIP occurs at 10 a.m. in our sanctuary (main worship space) and on Facebook Live (www.facebook.com/lovinglutherans).  We offer liturgical worship featuring settings and congregational singing from the Evangelical Lutheran Worship (“cranberry”) hymnal.  Holy Communion is offered every week.  Please refer to the “Plan Your Visit” section of this website for more details.

OTHER PUBLIC WORSHIP (such as Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maunday Thursday, and Good Friday services) occurs at 4 p.m. or as announced on our website, Facebook page, and monthly newsletter. 

BAPTISMS, WEDDINGS, ETC. occur as scheduled and are officiated by Pastor Sorensen.  Baptisms and Affirmation of Baptism rites (“confirmation”) are generally conducted during Sunday worship.  Weddings, funerals, and memorials are generally not conducted the week before Christmas nor Holy Week (the week before Easter).  Please contact the church office to arrange baptisms, affirmations, weddings, funerals, memorials, and associated preparation (planning and/or instruction).
