What To Expect

What To Expect When You Visit Us

From the moment you arrive to visit us at Amazing Grace we hope you feel welcome and comfortable.  We look forward to the opportunity to greet you and show you around. 

8:45am Sunday School

We take growth and education in the Word very seriously and welcome you to Sunday School as well as other educational programs we offer.  At Sunday School we walk through a variety of prepared lesson plans covering things like discipleship, growing as a Christian and more.  It is an open and casual format encouraging everyone to share their thoughts and contribute to the discussion. 

10am Service

The highlight of our time together is celebrating the worship service together.  This is a time we come together to receive the blessings God has to give us through the reading, preaching and proclamation of His Word and in His Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. In return we respond to Him with praise and thanksgiving.  It’s  not about what we come to Church to do for Him but to celebrate and give thanks for what He has done for us! 

As Lutherans, we believe the two requirements for a service are:

  1. The Word taught in Truth
  2. The Sacraments (Baptism and the Lords Supper) be administered rightly

 All other elements of the church service are considered “adiophora”, things neither commanded nor forbidden to do.  So how do we determine things that would be excellent to include in the service?  We believe that it is important to take a look at what the early churches felt were important.  We do this by studying the people in the Bible who were closest to the time of Christ for the answer. 

1st Century AD church:  These churches started out small and usually met in a home.    Their gatherings often included a shared meal, prayer, teachings about Christ from the disciples or those closest to them, hymns and celebrating the Lords Supper and Baptism. 

Typical elements of our Service:

  • Announcements
  • Time of Quiet Reflection
  • Confession and Absolution
  • Reading of the Word
  • Teaching of the Word
  • Prayers of the Church
  • The Lord’s Supper
  • Final Blessing
  • Songs (both Traditional hymns and contemporary music) 

We follow this order not because we believe it is the only right way but because we believe this ancient pattern of worship most clearly and beautifully serves the purpose of worship, to deliver the gracious gifts of God.
