About Worship

Join with us in the praise of God and at the Lord’s Table. We have a policy of open communion inviting all who are members of Christ’s Church to share in His Holy Meal. Children not yet prepared to receive this sacrament are invited to come forward and receive a blessing. If you are without a church home, please return and worship with us regularly.

In the time before our service begins, all are encouraged to pray and reflect in order to make us open to God’s Spirit. For a reflection and meditation resource to use before service begins, we encourage you to read Martin Luther’s Small Catechism found on pages 1160-1167 in The Evangelical Lutheran Worship Hymnal.

Children are always welcome in our worship. A children’s corner with books is available in the narthex just behind the sanctuary. There are also ‘quiet’ bags available for children to use in the pew. A Children’s Bulletin is given out by the Pastor after the Children’s Message.  A quiet room with rocker is available for mother’s in need.

Please take a moment to sign our attendance slip and place it in the offering plate. Visitors, please provide your mailing address so we can acknowledge your presence. Members, please provide any updates or changes to your contact information.

The Lord’s Supper

The Lutheran Church teaches that in Holy Communion the body and blood of Christ are truly present in the bread and wine, and that through this gift we receive forgiveness of sin, life, and salvation. We invite all who are baptized and share this faith to come to the Lord’s Table and receive this gift. Both wine (dark) and grape juice (light) are offered. Those unable to come forward should mention this to an usher; and the pastor will serve you in your pew.

INVITE someone to worship with you. All of us know someone who needs the Lord and a place to worship and serve. In your circle of influence, be a messenger for Jesus Christ. Your invitation will make a world of difference in that person’s life!

Prayer Requests

If you have a prayer request, please fill out a blue prayer card located in the pews, and place it in the offering plate. You may also speak the name aloud at the appropriate time during the Prayers of Intercession. Information shared on the prayer cards will be forwarded to the Prayer Ministry Team per your request. You may also call the church office at 843-785-5560 and contact the Parish Administrator, who will forward your request to the appropriate contact immediately.
