About Worship and Bible Study

We are grateful and blessed to have you join us for our worship gathering. Our services are focused on being reverent, liturgical, and traditional.

9 A.M. Sunday Service

Our weekly Divine Service is a liturgical format with roots that go back to the second and third centuries. Traditional organ music accompanies the congregation in the chanted portions of the liturgy and the hymns. The rich heritage of this service, combined with the deep truths of ancient hymns, is a much-needed anchor in the seas of change. We look to worship in a way that best gives glory to God for all that He does as our creator and redeemer. We understand that the historic liturgy helps us celebrate our Christian unity across generations. We see the liturgy as a blessing that reflects and teaches us the truths of God’s Word. We look to follow Paul’s encouragement to the Colossians, where he stated, “Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts” (Colossians 3:16).

10:30 A.M. Sunday Bible Study

Our church meets for a Bible Study weekly on Sunday following our worship service, located in our Fellowship Hall upstairs. Jesus rebuked the devil's temptations in the wilderness by responding first each time with the words, "It is written" (Matthew 4:1-11). Therefore, we do well as believers to look to our Lord's example of leaning on Holy Scripture as our conviction and guide in this life. Of course, we hear and learn from the Bible in the Divine Service, but we are also strengthened and sustained in the faith through God's Word at other times and places: in Bible Study, special worship services, personal devotions, and the like.

Our Bible studies are geared toward hearing, reading, learning, and inwardly digesting the Word of God for our spiritual benefit. As such, we delve into a wide range of theological topics through differing formats of study. We have done general topical studies (e.g. Christian Apologetics), video-based studies (e.g. the Reformation), studies on the Lutheran Confessions (e.g. the Augsburg Confession), and more traditional Bible book based studies (e.g. 1st Corinthians). Our aim is to provide folks young and old alike a breadth of knowledge in the Word of God and our Lutheran Confessions, which as we understand, uphold the Word in truth and purity. Participation and questions are encouraged! Don't feel as though you need to have decades of Christian education to join us for this special time of fellowship and spiritual formation. We strongly encourage and welcome all who are able to join us for a joyous time of learning more about God's awesome Word!

10:30 A.M. Sunday School

Proverbs 22:6 reads, "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Christ our Lord proclaimed, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 19:14). Children and youth are treasured in our congregation, along with the rest of the people of God here. Sunday School is offered at our church to all little children up until 6th grade. We invite and encourage children to attend for essential spiritual growth in Christ through His Holy Word as well as growth in relationship with one other. This ministry meets in the nursery following the Divine Service. Through the essential Word and Sacrament ministry of Christ that goes on here, supplemented by our Sunday School, we pray that your children will warmly welcomed and richly blessed in Jesus at Christ Lutheran!

10:00 A.M. Wednesday Bible Study

Our church also offers a midweek Bible Study on Wednesdays, at 10 A.M. This study is different from our Sunday study. Typically, we focus on a book from the Bible and read it from beginning to end, providing commentary, cross-references, and practical applications throughout. Normally, this study does not meet during the seasons of Advent and Lent, when our people are encouraged to attend our midweek worship services during those special times of the year.
