We have two different styles of worship at Grace Lutheran.
We celebrate Traditional Liturgical Worship. This is historic and rich in tradition and symbolism. This worship format is full of history and is familiar to many who have a background in the life of the church.
We also celebrate a Contemporary service and we change things up a bit with the music and service layout for something we call Praise Worship. This style is a continuous work in progress. Unlike the traditional format, there isn't a scripted format to follow. The praise style makes use of songs that are from the past couple of decades that often express biblical truths through a more modern cultural lense which can help connect those with limited or no church background. The praise style also utilizes the aid of overhead projection where the entire service can be followed and hands can be lifted up in praise or during prayer or used for clapping along with the occasional praise song.
We want to help you avoid that uncomfortable feeling. You know the feeling you get when you go someplace new. Churches have different traditions and ways of doing things, so below you'll find a few of the most common questions we've run into from people who are checking things out for the first time.
