 Q: [What happens at the Sunday service...?]
A: [In general our Sunday services follow a relatively structured format that flows from forgiveness and reconciliation, to learning and enrichment, to celebration.  We try to identify a central theme or focus for each service, and we work hard at making our music the very best it can be.  A visitor friendly bulletin allows everyone to follow along and participate.]


Q: [Do I have to know anything special to participate...?]
A: [Not to worry! The service bulletin contains everything that goes on in the service, in chronological order. And the pastor reinforces this with verbal information at the beginning of the service. Besides, we are reasonably low key and laid back in adjusting as needed.]


Q: [What about the Lord's Supper...?]
A: [The Lord's Supper, or Holy Communion, or Eucharist, is a tradition that dates back to the beginnings of the church. We share bread and wine, as did Jesus with his closest followers, just before his death. It is a celebration of our life together with God, and with each other. We welcome all baptized Christians who wish to join with us. We offer grape juice as an alternative to wine for those who so desire.]


Q: [What do I wear...?]
A: [There is a range of styles, from formal to casual, really a cross section at every service. In short, there is no hidden dress code. Wear what seems comfortable to you.]


Q: [What about children...?]
A: [We have some! And we enjoy them. For children five and under we provide a nursery service during the Sunday worship hour, if you wish.  Many prefer to bring their children with them in the service, and only use the nursery as an "emergency" backup.  We are used to having young children present.]


Q: [What if I am not Lutheran...?]
A: [You are in good company. Jesus wasn't either. The congregation represents a cross section of different backgrounds, and denominational distinctions don't mean what they meant 500 years ago.]


Q: [Where are you located...?]
A: [South on Dixon Road, or 200West, at the corner of Zartman Road on the west edge of Kokomo.  Use this link to our map page.]


Q: [I am a bit nervous about walking into a church of people I don't know...?]
A: [Yes, that is the way most people feel about a new church. But the old timers don't necessarily know everyone either. And hey, the coffee after service is hot. We have some nice round tables in the fellowship hall, conducive to conversation. Relax. Introduce yourself.]
