Faith Lutheran Church

Worship

We are delighted to welcome you, wherever you are in your spiritual journey. Our worship embraces the varied voices that make up our congregation from the very youngest to the oldest and everyone in between. We gather to welcome all as Christ has welcomed us, without reserve or judgment.

On Sundays at Faith, two worship services are held. The services take place at 8:30 and 11:00. The hours of worship are changed in the Summer to 9:00 and 10:30.  The service is usually about an hour long. It is not uncommon for folks to linger after service for refreshments and conversation.  It's a great time to learn more about Faith from our members.

The hymns and liturgy comes from the worship book, Evangelical Lutheran Worship. The pastor is assisted in worship leadership by lay people who read the lessons, lead the prayers and assist with the distribution of Holy Communion and other parts of the liturgy.  We celebrate Holy Communion every Sunday. All the baptized are welcome to feast in the Eucharist. You may receive only the bread or wine and still experience the full benefit of our Lord's meal. Those who do not receive bread or wine are invited to come for a blessing.

Joyful Noise Service:  Our “Joyful Noise” Services are held on specific Sundays at 2:00pm and are appropriate for children with Autism, PDD-NOS, ADHD, Down’s Syndrome and any other developmental/physical challenges. Catering to short attention spans, the service is a lively combination of music, movement, prayer, Bible stories and communion. The essential message of God’s love and joy for all of his children is presented in a simplified, meaningful way.This service brings together children with disabilities AND children without disabilities to learn together, and from each other, in an atmosphere of understanding and acceptance.  For more information and for updates about specific dates, please visit our Calendar page on this site or the Joyful Noise Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/joyfulnoisehillsborough.

We invite you to join us in the belief that with God and one another we can make a difference. Join us on the sacred journey towards a better church and a better world!
