LUTHERAN CHURCH CANADA
As you enter the church, you are embraced by traditional Christian worship. Instead of experimenting and inventing new styles of worship, we are faithful to the worship of the early Christian Church, and the teachings of God that it confesses.
Worship is also liturgical. This means that we follow a set order of worship or liturgy that varies only according to the Christian year. Liturgical worship also makes full use of the space inside the church, various colours, as well as historic church garments to show the love of Jesus for His people, the Church.
Worship is also sacramental. In a unique way, God comes to us through visible means called Sacraments. God himself makes us a part of His Church by washing our souls clean of all guilt in the Sacrament of Holy Baptism. Those baptized members who are properly instructed and prepared receive the Lord's further strengthening and power through the Sacrament of the Altar, offered every Sunday. In these ways our Lord serves us with the life He gives so that we are able to serve others.
Dear fellow members,
Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.
What does this mean?
We should fear and love God so that we do not despise preaching and His Word, but hold it sacred and gladly hear and learn it.
This Sunday, June 28th, our church will open its doors for worship services at 8:30 and 11:00 am for the first time since March.
Respecting government restrictions, we are limited to 30% of our seating capacity, will keep at least 2 meters from those of other households, and provide masks for you to wear.
Many thanks to the Elders who have worked hard to make sure that our return to church complies with government requirements. Thanks also are due to our Chairman and Trustees who have also worked hard to make adaptations to the church building, provide necessary supplies, and clean after services as we gather.
If you plan to attend either the 8:30 or 11:00 service, and you have the hymnal, Lutheran Service Book, please bring it with you for your use. If you have your own face mask, please bring that to wear as well.
There are many reasons during these troubled times that may lead you to choose not to return to public worship. We remember you in prayer and joyfully confess that you are also included the unbroken fellowship of those who are baptized into Christ Jesus, the living Lord. The service will continue to be recorded each week and posted to YouTube, sometime after Sunday morning.
