About Us

Worship

One of the most distinguishable characteristics of a church is its use of the Word and the Sacraments.  A congregation's worship is its most visible and most important act as a community of faith. Fellowship's regular Sunday morning worship service is at 10:00 AM and we currently offer a 5:00 PM Worship and Praise service on Sunday evenings.  


We celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion every Sunday at both services and at other special occasions during the year such as Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and Christmas Eve.


The Communion table at Fellowship is "open" meaning that all baptized Christians who have been receiving the sacrament in their own congregations and who believe that Christ is truly present in the sacrament to forgive their sin are encouraged to receive His Body and Blood, "in, with and under" the bread and wine of the Lord's Supper.

Christian Education

Christian Education is a tradition in the Lutheran Church and a priority among our ministries at Fellowship.  God reveals himself to us in the Scriptures and our study of them helps us apply them to our daily lives.  This is an essential part of our growth as Christians.


Sunday School for all ages 3 years old through adult begins at 8:45 AM every Sunday except during the summer months.


A one year confirmation class for 6th through 8th graders is offered every other year and is held during the Sunday School hour.  Please contact the Pastor for more details. 

Fellowship

There are many opportunities to socialize with the other members of our family of faith.  Opportunities for all ages are offered throughout the year.  Some of the regular groups and activities are listed below.  You always invited to participate with us in:

Music

Adult Choir Rehearses Wednesday 7:00-8:00 p.m. except during the summer months.

Youth Activities

Social Events for our youth in various age groups are planned and led by parent volunteers.  They often enjoy overnight "lock-in" at the church for both fun and study.


Retreats and regional gatherings for our Middle School and Senior High youth are regularly scheduled.  The fees for these off-site congregational retreats and regional gatherings with youth from other congregations are generously offset by a portion of the proceeds from our Pumpkin Patch sales each year.

Our Vision

To be a "called and gathered" faith family whose members so fully experience the undeserved love of God that we are moved to express that same love of God in our relationships with one another and the whole community.

  • by inviting and welcoming all of God's children into our faith family while expressing a uniquely Lutheran theological identity.
  • by integrating people into this faith family so that they will share its vision, own its mission, and celebrate its presence in this place.
  • by celebrating together in a corporate worship that lifts up Word and Sacrament as a means of grace and utilizes a variety of liturgical and musical styles in expression of that grace.
  • by teaching the Good News to youth and adults alike through an encounter with God's Word in both of its forms -- law and gospel -- which are a means of grace, and by boldly exploring our doubts, our hopes and our fears in a supportive and affirming environment which is an expression of grace.
  • by building up the confidence and ability of our members to share the Good News of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection and their own faith stores with others both inside and outside this faith family.
  • by challenging the members of this faith family to discover, develop, and apply their varied spiritual gifts, talents and personal resources in service to both the Church and the community as a joyful response to their growing relationship with God.

Our Purpose

To share God's love and grace through our words and actions.
