What to Expect.

What can I expect during the worship service?

Every Christian church has its own style of worshiping Jesus. We try to create a reverent and relevant worship experience at Grace. Our services meet you where you're at - whether you're brand new or have been worshipping with us for years.

Our services are liturgical, meaning they usually follow a similar pattern each week, including:

  • The Invocation - We call on the name of our Savior God as we praise him.
  • Admitting sins and Hearing Forgiveness - We acknowledge that we have not always done what God asks. Then we are assured of forgiveness because of what Jesus Christ has done for us.
  • Bible Readings - We hear selections from God's Old Testament prophets, Jesus' apostles, and from Jesus himself in the Gospels. The pastor also gives a brief explanation of each reading.
  • Sermon - Our pastor offers instruction and encouragement in a Bible-based sermon. We hear how we can expect God's guidance and grace for dealing with problems, as well as the promise of eternal life in heaven through Jesus.
  • Response to the Word - We respond with offerings, hymns, and prayers in thanks for the things God has promised to us and for strength to do what he has asked.
  • Parting blessing - We hear one last assurance of God's care.

Mixed throughout these different parts of our service are hymns and short songs to praise God.

What should I wear?

There is no dress code at Grace. You’ll see some people dressed in jeans and a polo, and others will be dressed in khaki shorts and a t-shirt. Come as you are!

What kind of church are you?

We’re a Lutheran church, part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. But more important than our affiliation is our set of beliefs – you can find those here.

What about my kids? Will they attend worship with me?

We love having children in the service. We believe that worshipping together as a whole family is important, so children are always welcome.

We also know that sitting still for an hour can be tough on little ones, so you’ll find activity bags, along with a separate nursery, should you need them.
