Return to Worship

 


Yes, we're livestreaming every Sunday on Facebook. Yes, we're still broadcasting in Charter Oak on 95.1fm. Yes, if you listen in your car and would like, we'll bring Holy Communion out to you (1st & 3rd Sundays of each month). Yes, Covid is still a thing, but we have a roomy sanctuary, and closed circuit TVs in our fellowship hall. Wear a mask if you prefer. But we'd love you to attend with us in person if you can.

Friends & Neighbors, Maybe you attended a drive-in service in 2020 or have been joining us on Facebook or YouTube. You're welcome to visit in person too. Have you lost your home church? Whether due to Covid closures, clergy shortage or budget crunches? We're here for you too. Even if you aren't Lutheran.

Members, Many of us didn't receive Communion in 2021. Come receive the blessing of this means of grace every first and third Sunday. See how refreshing and renewing it can be.
