    Holy Eucharist is offered in the Trinity Nave at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday. All attendees wear face-masks and follow posted physical distancing guidelines. The assembly sings larger portions of the service as we move through the summer. We commune currently with the bread only, received directly from the ministers wearing masks and gloves. This worship service is also available to watch and hear online via our Vimeo channel or through our congregational website.

    In light of the ongoing risk posed by the coronavirus we invite you to make a responsible and healthy decision regarding your participation in our worship. Lutherans teach and confess that Christ is present in the assembly gathered around the proclaimed Word of God, in the water and the Word of Holy Baptism, and in the shared meal of bread and wine at Holy Communion.
