Both services are identical and authentically unique in the Tampa Bay area. Our sanctuary is a technology/distraction free respite from the week’s bombardment of media and minutia. We rotate a variety of liturgically based worship formats from the Lutheran Service Book, appreciate a wide range of classical music and instruments, & encourage hymnal participation.
Holy Communion is celebrated in both services on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of each month. All Christians who share in agreement of confession of our Church are welcome to come forward and receive the forgiveness of sin and strengthening of faith via the body and blood of Christ. Those uncertain are welcome to come forward, cross arms, and receive a blessing by the pastor.
