WE WELCOME EVERYONE TO WORSHIP GOD.

THE WORDS WE SAY
Let all things be done for building up. – 1 Corinthians 14:26
Worship at French Creek is liturgical in style, meaning we follow the traditional worship structure of the Christian church. We hear the Bible read out loud, the pastor proclaims the gospel through sermon, we proclaim the gospel through song, and we pray for the needs of the world.
THE SOUNDS WE MAKE
Make a joyful noise to the Lord. – Psalm 100
We love to sing hymns (old and new) supported by the organ, but you’ll also find that we use the piano, guitar, other instruments and choirs on occasion. In addition to hymns, sometimes we chant and sometimes we use new worship songs.
Worship at French Creek is multi-generational. You will find elders sitting with youngsters. We welcome the wiggles, noises and joy that babies and children bring to the community when they worship. The youngest children may bring a “busy bag,” available from the ushers, into worship. There are sound amplifiers for those who need assistance to hear what is happening.
THE MEAL WE SHARE – COMMUNION
For the remembrance of Christ. – Luke 22:19
We typically celebrate Holy Communion on the first and second Sunday of the month and for Christian feast days. As Lutheran Christians, we believe that Christ is truly present in the bread and the wine of Holy Communion. We believe that Jesus Christ is host at the communion table, and the invitation to the meal comes from Christ himself. We welcome all baptized persons who believe in Christ to the table. At French Creek you may commune with bread or gluten free wafer, and with wine or grape juice. Those who are not receiving communion may request a blessing.
