At Grace and St. John’s we worship in the way generations of faithful Christians have worshiped, using the liturgy passed down to us through the centuries. Our services are filled with a variety of music from across the ages, accompanied by the organ and, occasionally, other instruments as well – all to the glory of God and the encouragement of His people.
Our congregations, in humble obedience to Christ’s Word, practice closed communion. We believe that communing together signifies our complete agreement in Christian doctrine. This means that all people are invited to join us for worship, however, we ask that only those who are members of Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod congregations come forward to receive the Lord’s Supper. If you are visiting and would like to come forward for a blessing: we invite that! Please cross your arms at the rail for the pastor to see. If you would like to receive the Lord’s Supper with us in the future, the pastor would love to visit with you after the service.
The Lord’s Supper is received weekly at Grace and on the first two Sundays and Church holidays at St. John’s.
