What to Expect on Sundays

We strive to make our worship service accessible and welcoming. If you have any questions about the service, child care, or what to expect, you can ask our greeter when you arrive. Or, if you’d like to talk to our elders or pastor before you visit, please email or call 651-771-0125.

Video Stream: Our worship services are streamed via Zoom. Contact an elder at the church for the Zoom links. 

Finding Us: The easiest way to get to our church is from Lexington Avenue. Turn east onto Como Avenue. The road curves and the first thing you’ll see ahead on the north side of the street is Twin Cities German Immersion School (TCGIS.) We are across the street on the south side, at the corner of Como and Oxford.

Parking: Parking is available in the lot behind our church building, in the TCGIS lot across the street, or on the street. If you ride your bike, you may bring it inside with you.

Accessibility: Our front entrance on Como Avenue is stair-free. A lift provides access to the sanctuary, lower levels, and an accessible restroom.

What to Wear: Please wear what makes you comfortable. You’ll find some of us in jeans, others in suit and tie. Business casual is the average.

Children in Worship: We always welcome little ones in our worship services. If you would like a quiet place for children, there is a cry room at the back of the sanctuary, and a nursery in the upstairs of the education building. The service can be listened to in either place. Please check with the greeter if you would like to drop your child off at the nursery for the service – we have volunteers ready who would love to help.

Sunday School: Sunday School meets at 9:15 AM. Children’s Sunday School meets on the upper level. We also have nursery care available. Our adult class meets in the fellowship hall on the lower level.

Communion: The Lord’s Table is open to those who profess faith in Christ and are members in good standing of a Bible-believing church.  We celebrate the Lord’s Supper each week in the morning service. If you have questions about participating, please speak to an elder or the pastor prior to the service. We offer both wine and grape juice, and have gluten-free bread available.

Fellowship Meals: We have a fellowship meal after the morning service on the first Sunday of the month. There is always plenty of food to share. Please note: During the summer months (June, July, and August), we grill burgers and brats after the evening service on the third Sunday of the month. All are welcome.

Music: We love to sing! We use the Trinity Psalter Hymnal and the Trinity Hymnal. Our accompaniment is usually piano, sometimes organ, and in special moments we may sing a capella.

Order of Worship: Our service follows a dialogical pattern – a conversation with God – that draws us into God’s presence through confession, forgiveness, the teaching of the Word, and thanksgiving.

Bibles: You are welcome to bring your Bible with you, whether paper or electronic. We also have Bibles (ESV) in every pew.
