• What's a service like?

    • Our worship is intimate and meaningful. Songs are both contemporary and updated traditional. “Our service springs from a confessional Lutheran liturgy. Our language is up-to-date and accessible. We begin each service with singing, invoking the presence of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, listening to the Word and a weekly Gospel message, end the service with Holy Communion and enter back into the world with praise in our hearts.”
  • What's the music like?

    • Worship is a spiritual experience, drawing each individual into a deeper connection with Jesus Christ.  We choose songs which both support our foundational beliefs, but also elevate our souls.  Stylistically, we are an acoustic contemporary band, singing current songs and also modern variations of hymns in order to lead heartfelt and authentic worship.
  • How do people dress?

    • We want you to be comfortable, so come as you are. Dress tends to be modest and casual. Depending on the weather, people wear jeans, shorts, sandals, etc.
  • What about my kids?

    • Your children are welcome and well-cared for. Our Family Ministry hour, prior to each Sunday morning service, is an intergenerational classroom where the Gospel is presented in a relevant way. Alhough there is value to children’s participation in common worship, we provide a Nursery for infants and toddlers and an appropriate message for elementary-aged kids during Children's Church each week.
  • Can I take communion?

    • During communion, we believe that we receive, in, with, and under the bread and wine, the true body and blood of Christ shed on the cross. The same Jesus Christ, who is now risen and ascended to Heaven. If this, too is your confession, then we welcome you gladly to participate. If you’re not sure what all that means, please stop and talk with Pastor Harrison or an Elder after the church service.
  • How can I get connected?

    • There are many ways to connect with us: become a member, join a small group, or get involved in a ministry where you can serve others with your particular gifts, talents and experiences. Stop at the Welcome Table on Sunday morning to express your desire, and we’ll put you in touch with the right person.
    • What can you do today to stay connected? Like our Facebook page or sign-up for our weekly newsletter. You’ll know what we’re up to during the week.
    • Find us in the community: We participate in Whitmore Lake area events, which aren’t church services. When you find us having fun around town, you are welcom to participate.
    • Join us for other church events. There are times during the year when we take some time to hang-out together and simply build friendships. Join us for pot-lucks, splashing on the lake, pond hockey, Fourth-of-July festivities, and other seasonal fun.
  • Where do I park?

    • For the next several weeks there will be limited parking as we update the parking lot. Guests and handicapped, please us our main lot at the building. We ask that all of our regular members and attenders park in the vacant lot directly across the street OR in the Northfield Township Library lot at 125 Barker Road and walk to 200 Barker Road. Handicapped drivers may park in front of the church.
