Ours services are taken from the Lutheran Service Book (Hymnal) which is available in each pew. We print two bulletins, a short version and an extended version which includes the hymns. If you are not familiar with the service or if you prefer larger print, the extended version is the one for you.

COMMUNION STATEMENT
Special note to our visitors and guests: Because those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of this congregation and The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, are kindly asked to refrain from partaking of the Sacrament until first speaking with our Pastor.
