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