On Sunday mornings at Memorial Lutheran Church (MLC), you will meet people who are warm and welcoming. We love our visitors!
We would love to have you join us for worship at Memorial Lutheran Church! We have a traditional service (i.e. the Lutheran liturgy) that begins at 8:00 a.m. At 10:30 we have a Family Worship Service where there is less formal music and special emphasis on children.
Upon entering the sanctuary, you will be greeted by an usher, given a bulletin, and have any seating questions answered. Prior to the prelude, you will find people chatting, catching up, and exchanging greetings. The prelude signals our focus on giving thanks and praise to our loving Lord.
Every Sunday, after each service, you are invited to Fellowship Hall where you can mingle with members, meet the Pastor, and enjoy coffee, juice, and light snacks.
While the worship experience can vary to some degree from week to week, you can always expect...
- An encounter with God
"Worship" comes from the word "worth." We gather to tell God how much He is worth and so find our own worth! Our purpose is to share God’s love, word and grace with all people. Our desire is for you to have truly encountered God’s love and grace while with us and have a better understanding of His word because of being here with us.
- Worship and You
We as Lutherans believe that there are three things necessary for worship: The Word clearly preached, the sacraments (Baptism and Holy Communion) lovingly administered, and you. God may well be calling you to be among us and make our worship and fellowship complete!
- A warm, friendly environment where you will be welcomed
- A concern for the heart
- A building of Faith
- Sunday Chapel Time for children of all ages
- Pray-Ground Table
People who worship with us tell us how welcomed they were while being with us. They love our fellowship after the services and the ability to get to meet so many people and the Pastor. We do not want to simply be friendly; we want to be your friend!
Psalm 51:10 says, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Our desire is for each of us to seek God. By gathering, hearing the Word of God preached and through Bible Study we strive to renew God’s Spirit within us.
We believe there is power in God’s Word! Romans 10:17 says “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ”. We desire to build your faith each week by hearing the Word preached and taught.
Chapel Time begins at 10:00 a.m. Parents may stay and watch or relax and have a cup of coffee before service starts while their children come to know Jesus and His Word in fresh and new ways.
At the 10:30 service, age-appropriate activities are provided where our Sunday worship is happening for a family worship experience. Children have hands-on activities that apply to the larger worship experience they are a part of.
